Never a Good Idea to Tick Off the Adoption Community

I saw a trailer for this movie and was horrified, offended and just amazed. As if the title was not obnoxious enough...go here to watch the trailer . As soon as I find out where we can send emails protesting this film I will let y'all know. I believe that there will be older children who have been adopted, who will be impacted by this movie. I don't doubt that they will be questioned by their peers possibly to their faces, but likely behind their backs. I believe that people will form opinions about adoption, and adoption of older children that will impact children who wait to be part of loving families.

This pisses me off.

That trailer made me feel physically sick to my stomach!! If you find out where we can protest this movie please let me know. So many wonderful children are adopted, often as older children and this will just reinforce some of the negative information out there. Disgusting!!

Very, very disappointed in the entertainment society. This is much worse than the T-shirt that came out a couple of years ago "Adoption is the new black"... that was wiped off the planet asap when the community complained. Sigh, this one might be a harder battle.

BTW, give some of us "babies" a warning next time.... I don't do well with scary movies- I'm still shaking from watching the movie trailer! ;)

One more reason to despise Hollywood. This is pathetic. Please keep us posted with a place to send complaints.

I am so sick about this! Please do share if you find anything out about who the hell we can send obnoxious emails to. I am beside myself.

yep... I agree with everything you've posted about this stupid movie trailer! Why is it that people and particularly hollywood has to make it seem like adopted kids are nothing but trouble. That's like saying all step-mothers are wicked. (and I for one am NOT) :0( Ticks me off too!!!!!!!

Sickening. Maybe Warner Brothers is the place to start?

We submitted some feedback to the Warner Brother's site. Not sure if this is the most effective path, but it's at least a place to start.

I am still in shock that they are actually producing such a disturbing movie. I feel so sick! Please do tell..if you find out where we can express our feelings about this horrible movie.
Some people will do anything for money but I hope this one is NOT sucessful!

I am not sure about all your other readers but this is the stuff my mama would say, "okay cover your eyes and ears b/c crazy people make movies/shows etc. like this, and it will make you crazy if you watch stuff like this."
ummmm...just like all the murder shows on t.v. all the ones which feature gruesome sex crimes against children and women--they come on every night of the week on t.v.....
yuck indeed.
cover your eyes and ears...
