Pretentious
27 December 2017 | by jimritchSee all my reviews

Poor boy. Mom has to drive a &60,000 Mercedes-Benz SUV. He lives in a $1 million home. But Mom is too busy to get him a haircut and, as a result, he has a serious discipline problem. Dad is a COOK (gasp, how low can you go?). Do you know how that makes the millions of people who cook for a living feel? This is the kind of crap Hollywood has churned out to insult and humiliate "middle America". No wonder that hate us in Kansas.
