Grow Up Already


After being dumped by his girlfriend, Andy realizes he’s got A LOT of growing up to do!

Most of us always drag out some childish behaviors well into our adult years, but director Richard Keith decided to bring these behaviors to an entire different level on the short screen. Richard tells us the story of Andy Mott, and how he’s trying to grow out of his childish behaviors after his girlfriend leaves him.

After seeing a string of Judd Apatow inspired films about a “man-child” growing up to win over the woman he loves, I thought it might be fun to satirize that idea by taking it to it’s literal extreme.

The film’s charm comes from its main actors, while Andy Mott’s diaper character is played by Johnny Simmonds (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), the beautiful Odette Annable (Cloverfield, Unborn) plays the role of his discouraged girlfriend. Ethan Suplee (American History X, My Name is Earl) makes an appearance as Andy’s play buddy, and let’s him hang in his “crib” for a while.

In its obvious and funny exaggerations, Grow Up Already portraits an ever present dilemma in many modern day relationships, where the man, or woman has trouble moving on past to adulthood.
