Sappy but it grows on you.
21 August 1999 | by (Smalltown, Ind.) – See all my reviews

Obnoxious Yuppies rent three kids to see if they will like being parents. Suspension of disbelief is required, of course, because in real life there is a shortage of non-dysfunctional kids to be adopted. The dad is a real jerk and the mom is very likeable. Good for kids.
