So... you know how you reach that critical mass with adoption, and you think, "Damn. I've just reached a critical mass with adoption. Golly, I'd sure like to watch a light-hearted comedy that has absolutely nothing to do with adoption. Say there, I wonder what new films are on-demand this month?"
And you know, every time you've reached critical adoption capacity, and you just want to watch something funny, for chrissakes, chances are near perfect whatever you pick will be entirely adoption related.
I was far too critical last night to order it, but once my mass reduces, I'm going to watch this. Anyone see it yet?
It actually looks funny.

This is interesting:
Here's a snip from an interview with one of the writers....
"The first seed of it all came from when [co-writer] Jason Foxworth and I were driving through the desert in Palm Springs and talking about our families. We decided we should do a family-type story, and I had an idea that came from something that happened to me when I was 4 years old: My brother had convinced me that I was adopted. I was crying, and I remember my mom was trying to console me, but my dad was across the room laughing. He thought it was funny, but, I mean, I was traumatized by the whole thing. So Jason and I thought, well, what if we took that idea, this dynamic, but made the brothers as being in a state of complete arrested development in their 30s? And then we went off and did a short ['Momma's Boy'] based on that."
Added to that was the fact that Bryant's girlfriend had been searching for her biological parents in real life for years, a quest that, as Bryant recalls, ended up becoming "a pretty frustrating experience."
I always find it fascinating when real kids talk about being traumatized by the idea of adoption.... but we're actually not supposed to be. We're emotionally crippled, bitter, angry trolls and should just get over it.
