Ilana Glazer and Michelle Buteau panic, laugh, and literally pull their hair out in new “Babes ”trailer

The crazy comedic duo take on parenthood in the upcoming pregnancy comedy.

Can the power of friendship conquer the insanity of maternity? Ilana Glazer and Michelle Buteau are about to find out.

In the upcoming pregnancy comedy Babes, the duo play longtime best friends who must navigate parenthood — whether they’re ready or not.

Dawn (Buteau) is already a married mother of two, with a doting husband (Hasan Minhaj) and all the full-time struggles that come with child-rearing. But her close pal Eden (Glazer) is in a very different stage of her life — one that involves late-night drinking and hooking up with handsome strangers.

Things change when Eden’s latest one-night stand, played by a charming Stephan James, leads to an unexpected pregnancy. Naturally, she turns to her married bestie to guide her through the process — a tall order that quickly complicates their relationship.

As dramatic as the premise sounds, two comedians are at the helm, and the trailer promises plenty of ridiculous moments. The buddies laugh and joke their way through their baby-making milestones — including in a scene in which Dawn asks Eden to peek under her skirt to check for an incoming infant, and another in which she's on the verge of having her very own lobby baby.

“I have your back no matter what,” Dawn tells Eden when they discover she's pregnant, but when asked if she truly believes her friend can raise a baby, she is comically hesitant.

But if pregnancy has its highs and lows, at least Eden does a decent job coping with her raging hormones. Does it really matter if she's flirting with a detergent bottle mascot if it's in the privacy of her own home?

Glazer’s character is a wink to her Broad City roots, with her playing another young adult struggling to grow up. In fact, Glazer and Josh Rabinowitz (a fellow Broad City vet) wrote the movie, which was directed by Pamela Adlon, who wrote, directed, and created the acclaimed, unfiltered FX dramedy Better Things, about a single mother raising three kids.

In the same vein, it looks like Babes will hold nothing back as Eden and Dawn’s journey through motherhood unfolds — whether it is chronicling the beauty of friendship, or depicting them literally tearing their hair out in front of a bathroom mirror.

The movie, which premiered at the South by Southwest film festival in March, drops into theaters on May 17.
