In other words Cliche #1 Parents didn't tell child he was adopted. Cliche #2 Adoptee has all kinds of problems dealing with the fact that he was adopted. Cliche #3 Adoptee is just a Bad Seed to begin with and you can't change Fate. And now that I've read this, let's add Cliche #4 Adoptive Parents are wonderful, it's just that Cliche #3 has come into play. After all these years, you'd think maybe, just maybe, someone could come up with an original plot line about adoption in a movie, but no, they just keep on plugging the same old adoptee storyline, over and over again.
