the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘Adopted’
Remember, this is meant to make you want to see the movie:
For hundreds of years, Africa has existed in a state of despair Famine, civil wars and rampant disease have left the continent without hope, but for the efforts of Western do-gooders. At first, they arrived with food, bibles and the magic of penicillin; more recently they have hosted rock concerts and sent plane loads of grain. And in the last decade of the 20th century they arrived and took babies home with them. First there was Angelina, then Madonna, and now…Pauly Shore!
Want to hear something scary? Not only does this movie star Pauly Shore, he also wrote, directed, and produced it. It is a full and all-encompassing expression of Pauly Shore-ness.
More, from a press release:
In ADOPTED, Pauly believes that he can leave his playboy past behind for good and start an instant family – as many other stars have done. After getting help from a social worker friend, Pauly practices fatherhood by taking an orphan-a-day while he explores a strange country full of weird and wonderful people, with disastrous and side-splittingly funny results. Meeting real people in actual chaotic situations along the way, he stumbles along the adoption trail, stepping on toes and poking fun at the current fascination with celebrity adoptions.
Pauly Shore as a playboy may be the oh-no!-est thing about this. Unless it’s the news that it’s meant to be “politically incorrect and hysterically funny”… *shudder*
