While some nepo-babies shy away from the title, this one knew just how to embrace it the best! Enter Jack Henry Robbins, who recently released a short Instagram video titled A Day in the Life of a Nepo Baby, featuring none other than his famous mom Susan Sanderson. The 34-year-old’s video, which offers a satirical, comical peek into his daily routine, has since gone viral, and people are loving the mother-son duo and their antics!
Morning Rituals and Wellness
Robbins kicks off the video by introducing himself and detailing his morning routine, complete with wellness practices such as meditation and stretching. Humorously, he incorporates a massive photo of his mother Susan Sarandon overlooking his bed.
Engaging in meditation while periodically checking his phone, he quips, “Meditation is very important to me to start my day.” Robbins then takes the audience into his shower, showcasing unconventional artwork, including a photo of his father, Tim Robbins, during an iconic scene from The Shawshank Redemption.
A Peek Into Susan Sarandon’s World
The highlight of the video is Robbins’ visit to his mother’s apartment, adorned with numerous awards, where Susan Sarandon, 77, makes her guest appearance. Playfully zooming in on her irritated reaction, Robbins narrates their dynamic, expressing gratitude for the lessons his mother imparts, both about the movie industry and life.
The duo also have a hilarious mocking fight revolving around money and inheritance. The video then transitions to a scene of Susan Sarandon napping, which Robbins comments is his mom’s usual post-fight nap routine.
Ceremony and Playful Soul-Draining
The day concludes with a lighthearted ceremony where Robbins and Susan Sarandon hide in a dark closet, and Robbins dons a black velvet robe. With a humorous tone, Robbins describes the ritual as an opportunity to “drain as much talent from my mother’s soul as much as I possibly can,” ending the video on a playful note.
It’s fun to see a celebrity child embrace the term nepo-baby in a joking manner, not taking it too seriously. And who wouldn’t want to see Susan Sarandon enjoying doing something so silly with her son? Talk about a supportive parent.
The latest film from Ben Affleck, AIR, has landed on Amazon Prime Video. The biopic has already scored a massive 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. 25 years after Good Will Hunting, the Ben Affleck-Matt Damon duo is back on the big screen, and it seems they haven’t lost their touch.
The New Film
Ben Affleck himself took the responsibility of directing the film, along with starring in it with his best buddy Matt Damon. The film also stars Jason Bateman, Chris Tucker, Viola Davis, Chris Messina, and Marlon Wayans, among others. The acclaimed film follows the real events of the 1980s about the origin of ‘Air Jordan,’ the revolutionary basketball shoe line from the famed sportswear house Nike. The story centers on the company looking to reinvigorate its brand image by putting all its faith into Michael Jordan, a rookie basketball player, being the face of the brand. Matt Damon plays the role of Nike executive Sonny Vaccaro, while Ben Affleck plays Phil Knight, the billionaire business magnate and co-founder chairman of Nike.
The Critical Reviews
AIR has already garnered many positive reviews from film critics. Praising the movie’s “perfect ’80s” look and feel, ABC Radio film critic Matt Neil gave the film four out of five stars. He also admired Ben Affleck for his direction by stating that he successfully made an enjoyable light entertainment for the bigger world out of something niche and esoteric. Critic Robert Ebert called the film “old-fashioned but also alive and crowd-pleasing” by particularly noting the “sharp and snappy script” perfectly wrapped up in a marvelous “entertaining package.” The New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis also praised the directing capability of Ben Affleck by saying that he managed to properly champion the talents of the cast, especially Matt Damon and Viola Davis, who plays the role of Deloris Jordan, the mother of the soon-to-be-legendary basketball player Michael Jordan.
