Storyline

A social worker who recently lost her husband investigates the strange Wadsworth family. The Wadsworths might not seem too unusual to hear about them at first - consisting of the mother, two grown daughters and the diaper-clad, bottle-sucking baby. The problem is, the baby is twenty-one years old. Written by Brian J. Wright <tyrannorabbit@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Ann Gentry: Mrs. Wadsworth, if I could convince you that Baby is capable of growth and development, you wouldn't stand in his way, would you?
Mrs. Wadsworth: Of course not, what mother would?
Ann Gentry: Well then I think you should consider putting Baby into a special clinic for the retarded.
Mrs. Wadsworth: Clinic? You mean like a hospital?
Ann Gentry: Oh no, not like a hospital. It's a day clinic, more like a school, where Baby could be with other people like himself, it's really the best way, maybe the only way.

This is the creepiest and most disturbing thing i ever saw in my life.
10 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw this movie, My jaw it hit the floor. The baby is one of the most out of this world movie i have EVER seen, it's just , while you are watching this you will being saying what the hell am i watching!

It a must see as it so bloody crazy!

This movie not about a small baby that goes on killing people (it nothing like it's Alive)

The baby is 21 year old man, who sleep in big cot, overprotected Mother and Dauggter won't let anyone get very friendly with baby, when they walk in on The babysitter breast feeding the baby, The sister attack the babysitter.

Soon Ann Gentry social worker who is hired to provide service for the Wadsworth family soon her and family in have few arguments, which go though out the movie.

I not going tell you anymore but there is shocking twist at the end of this movie that you will never Guss and never forget.

Acting is great 10/10
