Storyline

Spiraling into a mid-life crisis and feeling disconnected from his family, Ben Marcus, a reality-TV editor, thinks he can only be happy by fulfilling his dream of becoming a professional comedian. Ben posts his stand-up routines to YouTube, and the videos fall flat. Then his tweener son posts Ben miserably failing on a home improvement project, and much to his teenage daughter's dismay, it goes viral, launching Ben's social-media career as Selfie Dad. Although he quickly becomes an award-winning phenom, no amount of success brings Ben satisfaction. Through his friendship with a young coworker, Mickey, Ben finds the secret to a happy family . . . with his Bible in one hand, and his phone in the other. Written by 130 Agency

Laughter, Tears & a Great Message
21 June 2020 | by tjupiterSee all my reviews

This movie had a few "cheesy" moments which were acknowledged in the actual content of the film...making it quite funny! It dealt with real life issues with humor and offered great takeaway messages. Michael Jr. is hilarious and inspiring all at once. His movie did not disappoint!
