    “Have a nine-one-one-derful day.” I’ve never heard that term before. I imagine if a dispatcher said that to me, I’d be a little upset.

    Poor Molly is trashed for wanting to use a rope to defend herself, while Noble and Michael mimic ax-murdering the robbers and are totally encouraged and supported to do such a violent thing. Molly, I say you go girl, you defend yourself, you have every right.

    oh man I was dying when Tyler was telling the story about how he was naughty... omg that was hilarious... I wonder if his mom laughed at first when he smacked her with that 7$ I would have... especially if he said "7$ smack down!" as he did it...

    Tyler nailed it every single time he spoke, and Annabelle pretty much suggested the whole plot... still not even one african or asian american character in the trailer. Shame on Colbert for this whitewashed production.

    Hilarious as usual and Laura Linney didn't have many lines but she acted the shit out of it!,(that's a good thing),she is indeed a true pro:) and who doesn't love Bryan Cranston?

  • Elizabeth's Music and Arts

    If this format was a weekly show, I'm in.
    Creative kids are so funny. I'm blessed to work with some as a teacher; seeing their ideas on screen is a freaking riot.

    To be fair, the girl didn't say she would kill the robbers, just rope them like cattle.
    Lol and yet the boy says he's going to use an axe and "you know what" and everybody's like, "meh."

    These bits are hilarious -- and Colbert's rapport with kids is wonderful. Gotta love grownups who get on so well with children (and, yes, that's a slam on Trump, who doesn't even get on well with his own kids -- unless he wants to date them). Tyler is some kind of genius. I look forward to his work in the future. Laura Linney, perfect as always. And "Introducing John Oliver" -- I almost spit coffee all over my computer.
    PS: How do these kids know who Bruce Lee is, but not that he died? Would love to see a video of them watching the the video.

    Tyler is amazing, he's a mini John Oliver with his quips and timing. Tyler was hilarious and real, he needs to be hired by the Late Show. Great collaboration with all the kids, very nice to see a group of humans being nice to each other and actively listening to what the other had to say. Mind blown.

  • deez nutz
    deez nutz 5 months ago

    And people say there are no ideas anymore.......hollywood eat your heart out or this kids just might......
    My issue is I know black people (I'm actually 100% black myself) And we don't train our kids to call that cops fast...i believe they switch his and Molly's lines....thought she does seem to be the type to chop her dolls heads off....that being said still sounds like a better film then what is coming out

    1) I thought it a little odd that the only religious symbol visible during a Christmas movie brainstorming session was a Star of David on the wall.
    2) Where did these kids come from? Was this recorded in the pediatric wing of a psychiatric institution - like maybe a prepubescent Arkham Asylum?
