Storyline

Dr. Elena Kinder and Dr. Heap work for BABYCO, the world's leading manufacturer in baby products. What the public doesn't know, however, is that Dr. Kinder and Dr. Heap are secretly working on cracking the code to "baby talk" which is actually a highly sophisticated language which allows babies to communicate the knowledge of the secrets of the universe with which they are born. Problems arise when Sly, the smartest of the babies, escapes from the lab and unites the babies of the outside world to help free the babies trapped in the lab. Kinder and Heap must find Sly before it is too late. Written by Anonymous

Kid proxy vote
1 November 1999 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

First of all, let me just say that these comments are via my 7 year old son who didn't appreciate the fact that Baby Geniuses was on the list of the 100 worst movies -- and he figured that the vote tally was largely a reflection of adults who just didn't get it!

According to him, Baby Geniuses is funny and he likes funny stuff. So it's one of his favorite movies. It's a good story.
