Just watched "Adopted". I really liked it. I thought of it as a comedy, with heart.
I liked it, when Pauly was talking to people in the streets of Africa, and said he wanted to adopt a child from Africa and give them a better life in L.A.; and the response was, why adopt from Africa when there are so many American children he could adopt (ok, it's not word-for-word, but I appreciated the point that was made in that statement).
I appreciated, also, at the very end of the movie, the seriousness of adoption was acknowledged, along with these numbers: Africa, 34 Million orphans; Asia, 85 Million orphans; Latin America, 12 Million orphans; United States, 514,000 Orphans.
My personal feeling is that it's Pauly Shore's best movie yet (and that is saying a lotAdopted! I love his movies!!). I am so glad I bought it! It's a touching, irreverent comedy, with heart. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
