‘American Sniper’ Fake Baby Scene Draws Criticism (Video)
‘American Sniper’ had a record setting opening weekend at the box office, pulling in an amazing $105 million! The Clint Eastwood directed film also finds itself being praised in some quarters and criticized in others. But there’s one scene for which the comments are nearly unanimous – and they’re not good: the mechanical baby scene.
In one ‘American Sniper’ scene, main character Chris Kyle (played by Bradley Cooper) and his wife exchange highly dramatic dialogue while Kyle holds their new baby, a ‘baby’ that is obviously not only not real, but even mechanical. As one critic put it, ‘Not sure if Eastwood just skimped on the budget or didn’t trust Cooper with a real baby, but this ‘straight from Toys R’ Us doll’ is painfully obvious.
