The kid is so cute!
23 December 2012 | by Der_SchnibblerSee all my reviews

NOT.

Now we have a new addition to the Keaton roster, this time one of those damn child actors who awkwardly recite lines whose meaning they hardly understand. But hey, it doesn't matter, 'cause it's just so "cute." Excuse me while I puke.

Alex's idiot pinko liberal nut parents (he might as well have two mothers, since the father is the weakest, most emasculated male you'll ever see, he's even too afraid to tell his daughter he doesn't want her dating a piece of street trash... spineless loser) have taken their kid to some preschool where they will teach him how to be an emasculated pushover. He learns to "share" everything and be "friendly" and change diapers while playing house, during which time his "wife" is "at work." Shoot me now.

Of course, Alex freaks out at this idiocy and tries to take the dumb kid out of there before he is entirely neutered. Buuut the parents don't like this and after a bit of supposed tension, Alex apologizes (yeah, again) to the commie school teacher and starts contributing to the preschool program by lecturing there to the kids once a week. Aw, every body is happy. Cultural Marxism and butterflies.
