    When I saw the thumbnail the last thing I expected was a soft spoken puss of a creature. I'm sure it changes later on in the movie but god damn.

    I drink before I watch Theater Mode so I can automatically be more giggly but this one forced me to drink the whole way through. Kinda wanted to die 10 mins in.

    Will admit, only watched this all the way purely to see baby Iris and how Daddy Mikey and The Godfather would act around her.  Very adorable.

    The motivation to see this episode of Theater Mode with Iris is one of the last things that motivated me to become a first member... and I don't regret a thing! Michael joking with/about Iris is my favorite thing. "Stop! You're being a menace"  joy

    First best thing is very obviously Iris and how cute the guys are around her. The second best thing is when Michael was joking that if anything ever happened to him, Iris would always have this video to remember him by and Ryan said she would need to be a first member.

    I absolutely love that every comment is some variation of "What the fuck was that??" And "IRIS IS SO FRICKEN CUTE OMFG." lol Seriously though, she's the only reason I watched this one.

    What the hell was this movie!? Was it even a movie? Literally the only part of this trainwreck that was watchable was Iris's baby antics(she's super adorable,by the way. Congrats again to Michael and Lindsay).

    Came to the comments section to talk about Iris, found out everything had already been said and everyone has their priorities straight. She was obviously the best part of the movie.

    This movie was painful but seeing Geoff revert to Full Dad Mode with Iris made it completely worthwhile.

    Michael: "Fuckin, fuckin... fuckin the fuckin VCR"

    Geoff: "Ooh, another fuckin deer- oh I'm sorry sweetie, another deer."


    And thus we see why Michael's a married father and yet still a lad.

      Yep, when he was shielding her tiny eyes from disturbing things was adorable, especially when Michael didn't give a shit. xD

    They should turn the subtitles on for the movie so that we can know whats going on when they talk.

    You know what, this movie might have been somewhat interesting if it was just a normal, ugly person. But NOPE!
