Quotes:
[the villains have returned to their apartment after chasing Baby Bink all day long]
Norby:Hey, Eddie, you sure you don't want to go check if they have left the money?
Eddie:Oh, that's a good idea. We get the living hell torn out of us by a baby! Three fully-grown men versus 15 pounds of pink flesh with a mouth! Now, what chance do you think we have than strolling into that alley and coming out with anything less than 140 years in prison? No, thank you! This is a hexed situation, we walk away while we're still ahead.
Veeko:We took a licking and kept on ticking.
Eddie:We go back to banks. Dealing with grown-ups, and I want no kiddie stuff.
Norby:We did all right with banks.
Veeko:Or a convenience store once in a while, keeps things interesting.
Eddie:Well, you know one thing I learned from this: I ain't never gonna have any kids of my own.
Norby:Ha, yeah! Seeing as you burnt down the only tree in your forest, I ain't worrying about that.
[Norby and Veeko laugh, and give each other high-fives]

Guilty pleasure, perhaps..., 17 May 2009
Author: Bob Stout from Houston, Texas, USA

...but I really love this movie! It's a pity this was released on the coattails of "Home Alone", since it's inevitably perceived as a knock-off. But the comparison is really unfair. "Home Alone" featured McCauley Culkin as annoying, precocious, and self-sufficient far beyond his years. The criminals who were his foils were reminiscent of The Three Stooges in their ineptitude. The one quality both Culkin and the criminals shared was a being mean spirited to some degree.

Baby Bink in "Baby's Day Out" is a true innocent who survives on luck while remaining adorably unaffected. His criminal foils are more reminiscent of Laurel & Hardy than The Three Stooges - cleverer and more subtle. In this case, the quality shared by Baby Bink and the criminals is innocence and an underlying decency.

The supporting cast is superb, led by Joe Mantegna in one of his best comic roles.

If you're not too jaded to appreciate it, I highly recommend this movie.
