A WELCOME SURPRISE...!
13 August 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

Kyle Mooney, a current member of SNL, stars & co-wrote this extremely likeable fable that could've veered into an exploitative exercise rather than the quirky, amusing take we are given. An infant is abducted by a couple & raised in isolation to the point where a TV show is made specifically for him by his captors to entertain him not knowing the show would eventually become the focal point of his life now that he's freed. I expected a disaster since Mooney's humor on SNL can be hit or miss but this one he hits out of the park.
