Am I the only person who finds kids annoying? Seriously, I know there are the good moments which every parent savors but what about the millions of bad ones – the crying, the puking, the naughtiness, the back-chat, the endless questions – don’t they just do your heads in?
As you can probably tell I’m not a parent, and hopefully (fingers crossed) never will be. Which is why I cannot understand the fascination with books and movies about parenting and bringing up children.
I’m obviously in the minority though, as most people with kids can’t seem to get enough of them. Which is why Hollywood is so eager to snap up all the books it can.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eat, Sleep, Poop is the latest of these. Written by Beverly Hills-based pediatrician Scott W. Cohen, Eat, Sleep, Poop isn’t released until March. 30, but Dreamworks has already acquired the movie rights.
Eat, Sleep, Poop is intended as a common sense guide to newborns, but Dreamworks is taking this idea and turning it into a comedy under the steely gaze of producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald.
I can’t say I’m exactly excited by the prospect of this movie, especially as the writers behind Four Christmases are on board, but then I’m a non-parent with good taste, not the target audience.
