un- +‎ satirical

Examples

  • I still find Holofcener basically lenient and unsatirical about these people, but her work has more dramatic interest and comic snap than before, particularly in the dialogue between Rebecca and Mary, who live together and squabble about things like how many dishes to put in the microwave at once: "They take longer to heat if you put two in together" – "This is a fascinating conversation."
