Movie Review - Gayby Baby
How the limited p.o.v. hurts the movie is in the example of the family that visits and has dinner with the Prime Minister of Australia. When it happens, the movie barely registers it. It's an important thing that occurs but the filmmakers totally brush over it. Another example is the family that moves to Fiji, the islands east of Australia. Why they move to a more homophobic place is never explained. It's brushed over too.
The movie is a series of sketches and not deep dives. It provides moments of children being annoying or difficult to their parents, as well as moments of home life that are normal or at times dramatic that some could find compelling, but I needed more. I needed more depth.
Three Stars out of Five.
Rated PG for some language, a rude gesture and some smoking.
Running Time: 1 hr. and 25 mins.
