Pauly Shore may be known for his early ’90s films like Encino Man; however, the comedian hasn’t been on the big screen in a long time. He is making his comeback in a very bold manner — with the mockumentary Adopted — a jaw-dropping satire about Hollywood celebs — namely Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who build their families through international adoption.
“I am excited as Brad and Angelina are here, they want to talk to me … They’re not to happy that I was making fun of them adopting children in Africa. But its better they come after me than Oprah,” Pauly told Fox 411’s Pop Tarts at the Comic Con Convention in San Diego on Thursday (Angelina was there discussing her latest action thriller Salt). “I wanted to take a serious subject and poke fun at it.”
Pauly insists the documentary about international adoption is in good humor; however, the comedian does seem to have an underlying message.
The mockumentary pokes at the argument that celebrities forget that American children need adopting too, and “that’s not cool,” according to Pauly.
Pauly does feel that stars like Angelina, Madonna and Katherine Heigl adopt from a genuine place.
“Celebrities want to save the world,” he explained. “Look at Angelina, she has a Mother Teresa quality. She wants to do good and adopt one child at a time.”
Hope Pauly is ready for some backlash from Hollywood’s elite.
