If you were a fan of the best abortion romcom of all time, Obvious Child, then you’re probably going to love writer and director Gillian Robespierre’s new movie Landline, which has her reuniting with Jenny Slate.


In the film, Slate and Ali Quinn play sisters in the mid-90s who discover their dad (John Turturro) might be cheating on their mom (played by Edie Falco.) It’s important to note that a floppy disk seems to be involved in this discovery. Here’s the trailer:

This movie has it all: whiskey Mountain Dew drinks, raves, California Raisin Halloween costumes, grunge, Edie Falco demanding respect, and what looks like an aggravating and unrelatable scene in which Slate has to use a pay phone! Exciting!!!

Ugh, I feel weird about how much I like Jenny Slate. I followed her on Twitter because she’s funny and I figured her tweets would give me a good laugh now and then...but, I just find her very, I don’t know, genuine and good? I feel like if I saw her on the street I would accidentally act like we were old pals.

(Also, her dog Reggie is very cute)
