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

Comments on the baby movie
5 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought Baby Genii was a wonderfully sophisticated movie. Those babies are smarter than most people, no wonder all those jealous adults were upset with this movie. These verbally eloquent children were obviously cultivated for this movie; and one can only rave at the professional display of martial arts. Perhaps most people are not used to being babied but I'm sure these kids will be the future philosophers and stars of this planet. This show reflects the prenatal in everyone and our um-biblical connection to womb-ever it may concern. I thought dom Deluise was himself and the other actors were also quite convincing. The baby bashers who don't like this movie are probably a little too long in the tooth and may not actually recall the diaper decades. So, I'd like to recommend this show for all immature viewers of any stripe.
