Storyline

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! The film builds its comedy foundation on the international interest in Celebrity Adoptions, and the debate that surrounds these transactions on both sides of the Atlantic. Sometimes politically incorrect and never scared to tread on manicured toes. Written by Pauly Shore

Full of Laughs
19 July 2013 | by Todd BeardenSee all my reviews

This movie really made me chuckle. It took me a few minutes to get it but once I understood it really had me rolling around. It was obviously staged and not real. It was scripted. Anyone who gave it a bad review just maybe didn't catch that.

Shore isn't a great actor or anything he just does silly little things the whole time.

Really funny!! The kids in the film looked like they had a fun day too. I love the fact that he is poking at Madonna and Angelina too. I think their publicists did review here and really dissed him for it.

Hey, Madonna and Angelina..."This child does not want to go with you!" "You should be in prison!!"

hahaha. Keep your publicist off of these review sites. Ridley and Coppola...pssht, yeah right...fake name

Super-fun movie. Check it out.
