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
This is the third collaboration between Octavia Spencer and Jim Parsons. The first was on The Big Bang Theory ("The Euclid Alternative" Season 2, Episode 5). Ms. Spencer played a DMV agent dealing with the exasperating Mr. Parsons. The second was in Hidden Figures (2016) See more »

"A Kid Like Jake"? Who? He hardly even remember him in the movie!
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.
