Storyline

Robin Harris recounting his disastrous first date with the beautiful girl named Jamika. Tagging along for the date are Jamika's mild-mannered son Leon and Jamika's friend Bebe's three rude, crude, and obnoxious kids to a theme park called Fun World. Chaos ensues when Bebe's kids enter the theme park with adventures including being chased by a group of government agents, destroying the Titanic, and being on trial. Also causing trouble when a first date turns sour due to interference by Harris' alimony-demanding ex-wife Dorthea and her best friend Vivian. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

In the movie there are three kids, the movie takes place in "Fun World" for legal friendly reasons, and Robin was just tricked into going to Las Vegas near the end of the movie. See more »

User Reviews

 
You know, Paramount hasn't come THAT far since the old "Popeye" cartoons.
24 December 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"Bebe's Kids" demonstrates how hard it really is to make an animated feature; I don't just mean in terms of drawing, etc, but in terms of concept. The Hudlin brothers had originally planned to do a live-action movie about the comedian Robin Harris's characters of Bebe's kids, but after his death they decided to go the animated route - but from the finished result you wonder why they even bothered.

Robin meets the lovely Jamika (at a funeral!) and makes a date with her and her son for the weekend, but finds the deal involves bringing along her friend's children - Bebe herself never appears - and the three kids are a lot rougher than Jamika's kid. In addition to having to go with them all to the extortionately-priced amusement park where most of the movie takes place, Robin also has to cope with his ex-wife and her friend (who's convinced that they'll get back together), and it must be said that the parts of the movie involving him are much better than when it involves the title characters.

Not only are Bebe's kids (in addition to lacking any personality) much less sympathetic and much less funny than Robin, but they have to shoulder the blame for the movie self-destructing when they break into a secret underground section of the park; cue battles against robots and messages delivered with all the subtlety of a Mack truck. The movie wants to appeal to both adults and children, but never comes off as anything - you can tell the Hudlins weren't too experienced with animation, and they've stayed away from it since then. Thank heaven.
