A Youth Soccer Club Is Screening A Movie About Bad Youth Soccer Parents Called ‘Bad Parents’
As with anything filled with potential irony, it’s not exactly clear if the Montclair United Soccer Club of Montclair, New Jersey is screening the film “Bad Parents”, about a group of really terrible, over-competitive soccer parents, because they get the joke or because they totally don’t. Even if they understand the irony of a youth soccer club screening a move about terrible soccer parents, what’s the point? Because it’s funny? As a “lesson” to the bad soccer parents undoubtedly in their ranks?
At least the money raised will help kids who can’t afford to pay for soccer (yes, that’s how we do it in America…don’t ask).
Starring Janeane Garofalo, Reiko Aylesworth, Rebecca Budig , and Ben Bailey, Bad Parents is a witty, satirical comedy that exposes a world where “trophy kids” are like a new drug and addict parents will stop at nothing to insure their next fix. It’s soccer moms, and dads, gone wild. The film is written, directed and produced by Caytha Jentis from Ridgewood NJ.
Of course those types of parents aren’t in Montclair…
All the monies raised will go toward ‘soccerships’, funds Montclair United Soccer Club uses for kids who can’t afford to play soccer.
The problem with this film is that these people exist, and it makes me sad. We actually knew about this movie when it was released last year, we just didn’t pass it along because…well, it’s about shitty parents and youth soccer.
Also, the voiceover guy on that trailer is terrible.
