“American Sniper” cost just $60 million to make and by the time opening weekend was finished it had already raked in a cool $120+ million you would think that they could have spent just a tiny bit of money on either using a real baby or finding a better animatronic one that the one they used.

At only one point during the scene does the baby do anything and that’s when it wiggles it’s right hand a slightly when Bradley Cooper is sitting down holding him. It’s hard to tell whether or not that’s their attempt the make the baby look realistic or if it’s the baby’s attempt to alert everyone that it’s accidentally swallowed its entire pacifier, can’t breathe and is in urgent need of help. Either way the hand wiggle goes unnoticed and the rest of the scene is completely lost by the fact that the only thing you can think of is the fact that there’s a GODDAMNED LIFELESS BABY being passed back and forth between these two people.
