BRAD RADBY’S SYNOPSIS
At the start of the movie, Daniel Radcliffe, who is Harry the Potter, is a little boy who has no dad, because his mom, who is Sarah Jessica Parker, is a single and hip writer in the big city. It’s so trendy that she doesn’t have time for him, except to come in late at night to share their special phrase and kiss Daniel’s forehead.
When he’s Harry the Potter he does magic tricks but not here. wtf
Sarah’s best friend, who is Hugh Grant, likes to watch sports and hang out with his pals and do weightlifting, and Sarah thinks that if she hangs out with him and his friends, that he’ll change everything and be in love with her, like a boyfriend would be.
Sarah is an idiot. LOL!
One night while he’s waiting for his forehead kiss, Daniel decides to get on the online internet and see if he can see who his dad is. Why doesn’t he just use a magic trick that tells him is like the big question? wtf
He finds out about his secret grandma, who is Diane Keaton, and he goes to Diane’s house where she has yard sales and BBQs with cheerleaders, and that’s the only good part of the movie. Grandma tells Daniel that when the time is right she can tell the truth about who his secret father is.
While Sarah is annoying Hugh again, they get in a fight and she tells him about his secret son, who is her son that she had when they were twelve, and Hugh is surprised because it’s Daniel and he doesn’t know magic tricks still. wtf
Hugh can’t believe it, and goes outside and stands in the rain while Sarah yells at him from down the street. “YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND!!! NAY! NAY!” Sarah yells this while the shirt Hugh is wearing shows off his deceptive muscles.
A few weeks go by, and when Sarah gets home one night, Daniel isn’t there for the big forehead kiss. She doesn’t know what to do, so she calls Hugh, and he goes to look for him while Sarah cries and is useless.
Daniel is over at Diane’s, where she tucks him in and says the special phrase that he knows from his mom. Diane says that’s what she used to say to her son, and she shows him a picture of Hugh. Daniel says that Hugh looks just like him, and Sarah and Hugh are at the door, and that’s a meme for them being at the door.
Diane smiles because she did her job, and everyone kisses Dan-iel on the forehead over and over as the credits roll. His magic trick must be that he never gets tired of the kisses. wtf
BRAD RADBY’S PRODUCTION NOTES
1) Stephenie Piperbraum wrote this gay movie, so here’s part of the song I wrote for Brad Radby’s A Place at the Table:
Don’t let life get on you,
Don’t let Ray get you down,
Just because you’re urban,
Don’t mean you can’t make a table. (Make a table…)
2) One day I asked if Bruce and Will could do like a cameo and then it would be The Exploders 2, and Stephenie got mad, and if you haven’t guessed that meant a lot of doobies and gin for me.
3) Daniel got really sad when I was being tired and grumpy one day, and I screamed at him to either do magic tricks or get off the movie set.
4) He came over and he found a quarter behind my ear, and then I was a little happy because of the magic trick he did.
5) Daniel found a doobie behind my ear, too. :/
