Baby Geniuses

Jays Rating:


A good movie for the young, but not the young at heart is Baby Geniuses. This not-so-funny comedy is about a group of babies who live at Babyco, the worlds leading manufacturer of baby products. The babies are “living” eight levels below ground to keep the Baby Genius Project hidden. The public has no idea that these babies are being raised in a lab so that they may be studied. Dr. Kinder, played by Kathleen Turner and Dr. Heap, played by Christopher Loyd are evil doctors who are trying to identify and decipher the babies language. (I wish someone would break the code to the language my wife uses when talking to Eddie, our Jack Russell Terrier. I know they’re talking about me!) Problems begin when Sylvester, the smartest of the babies, escapes from Babyco by out-witting and karate chopping his adult jailers. Okay, it sounds stupid, but kids love this stuff. Sylvester ends up in a mall staring into the face of his identical twin brother, Wit. Wit was adopted as an infant, and neither boy knew they had a brother. When the goon squad shows up at the mall to capture Sylvester, they accidentally grab Wit instead. Sylvester is taken to the home of Wit’s adoptive parents. He is startled to find eight other babies living there, but he persuades the babies to help him break into Babyco and free Wit. I have a questions. If babies are so smart, why do they stick foreign objects in their mouths, place their hands on hot stoves, and mess their pants? Since I couldn’t see the special affects, I only heard babies talking like adults and babies talking like babies. Don’t waste your time on this movie– unless you have to take the kids. I give it a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
