“Why didn’t you use a condom or, for humanity’s sake, get a vasectomy?” snarls Lily Tomlin in her new film, Grandma.
One of the great pleasures of getting older is that it offers opportunities, not so much for telling truth to power, as telling truth to smug, libidinous, adolescent jerks.

The unsuitable suitor has just impregnated Tomlin’s granddaughter during a one-night stand, prompting her to ask granny for $630 for an abortion.
