To praise another word oft-disparaged, the word "like" does good work in "I stood in line for like eight hundred hours."
Donna is provided with a too-good-to-be-true hero (played by Jake Lacy) to soften and Hollywood-ize what would otherwise be a darker and perhaps more realistic denouement This didn't bother me as much as it did you -- possibly because I'm a total softie, but I appreciated that the movie wisely shifted the protagonist's dilemma from whether to have the abortion, which was emotionally fraught but never in question, to whether to tell Max. The fact that he was an almost stereotypically hunky romcom hero allowed her struggle to be internal -- it wasn't so much a question of whether she wanted to be with him, but how she felt with herself.
