Plot Summary

Spiraling into a mid-life crisis and feeling disconnected from his family, reality-TV editor Ben Marcus thinks he can only be happy by fulfilling his dream of becoming a professional comedian. He posts his stand-up routines to YouTube, and the videos fall flat. Then his tween son posts Ben miserably failing on a house-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 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

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The "Thank you" credits list in the credits begins by mentioning "Chic fil a San Clarita" spelled without the "k" in chick. This should give steam to all of the Mandela Effect subscribers who say that this was the original spelling of the restaurant chain's name. See more »
Goofs Despite being the Selfie Dad, Ben Marcus is actually never seen taking a selfie in the whole movie. See more »
