It takes a while to get over a major transformation in a child actor. There’s an expectation they’ll be preserved as their tiny adorable selves in real life like they are in your favorite movies. Honestly, how long did you just sit in front of your computer and stare the first time you saw buff Jonathan Lipnicki or hot Neville? And before you can notice anything else about the trailer for Sassy Pants, you might get hung up on muscular Beiber haired Haley Joel Osment (aka The Sixth Sense kid). Take a moment.
Overall Sassy Pants looks like it has a lot of potential. Ashley Rickards has already proven she’s a terrific comedic actress as the star of MTV’s Awkward. Sassy Pant’s Bethany, with an overbearing mom, gay dad, and closet full of monstrously pink clothing, looks like the most awkward teen to hit the screen since the geek in 16 Candles.
