Storyline

A Brooklyn couple has always known that their four-year-old son is more interested in fairy tale princesses than toy cars. But when his preschool director points out that his gender-nonconforming play may be more than a phase, the couple is forced to rethink their roles as parents and spouses. Written by A Kid Like Jake

"A Kid Like Jake"? Who? He hardly even remember him in the movie!
6 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

I don't really remember "Jake" being in the movie much! It was just about his parents and their conflicts in dealing having a weird kid. While we're on the subject of weird... I find it really difficult to buy that Parsons is actually a mainstream heterosexual parent in this film. He is not that good of an actor to be trying to pull it off. Now sure, he does play a straight guy in "The Big Bang Theory", but he plays a weird socially inept research scientist. This move is totally out of his range.

Anyway, the movie really was terrible. Lots of arguing and bad acting. Maybe if it were a TV movie, it might be okay, but I still wouldn't watch it.
