BABES follows inseparable childhood best friends Eden (Ilana Glazer) and Dawn (Michelle Buteau), having grown up together in NYC, now firmly in different phases of adulthood. When carefree and single Eden decides to have a baby on her own after a one-night stand, their friendship faces its greatest challenge. BABES delves into the complexities of female friendship with a blend of laughter, tears, and labor pains.

From co-writers Ilana Glazer and Josh Rabinowitz and directed by Pamela Adlon, BABES is a hilarious and heartfelt comedy about the bonds of friendship and the messy, unpredictable challenges of adulthood and becoming a parent.

“BABES’ benevolent humor skims the great heights of a Nora Ephron film for a modern take on womanhood that feels close to classic on arrival… The most eternal humor comes from real experience, and BABES is bursting with the kind of honesty that too few writers are comfortable gambling with.” —Coleman Spilde, Daily Beast

“A comedy that is unabashedly outrageous and rambunctiously heartfelt. While you may howl with laughter and gasp at a gross-out gag, you'll also walk away with a big smile — and maybe a bit more appreciation for your own quirks.” —Kristy Puchko, Mashable

“Adlon’s feature directorial debut bursts with a boisterous energy from its opening moments. Buteau and Glazer have natural chemistry, enhanced by their respective talents.” —Lovia Gyarkye, Hollywood Reporter

“BABES may deal with weighted adult issues like motherhood, friendship, connection and the struggles of moving on, but, rest assured, it is a comedic gold mine of delightful punch lines. Glazer and Buteau are perfectly in sync throughout the film, as if they, too, have been friends since childhood. Within their characters’ relationship is a grounded reality of what it takes to be a fully functional adult woman in the modern world.” —Matthew Creith, The Wrap
