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

Excellent little silly comedy
22 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

I find this movie funny. Maybe not side splitting, laugh out loud funny but it has a story and it has some good ideas and will tickle you a bit.

I don't agree that it is the worst movie of any year as some have said. You have to watch it for what it is. It is simply a little story held together with some nice performances by some kids who probably did not know what they were doing most of the time. I expect it took a lot of editing time to make this happen with the right expressions and timing by the kids. The story holds together, although there is some fantasy in it and at least one hard to believe plot point. I have watched it twice. Once, some years ago and I accidentally watched it again tonight. I thought it was something else (a documentary on smart babies) And I made it all the way through, both times. I don't always make it through movies with no story or bad acting. But this has a good cast, including the twin baby leads (played by triplets), some good lines and it holds together.

How bad could it be. There was a sequel and that means that it did make some money and there was some thought by someone that it would make more with the sequel.

So take it for what it is. A cutesy little movie with a plot, some evil characters and some fantasy plot points to hold it together and it will be enjoyable. I do not work in the entertainment industry and certainly don't work for any entity connected with the movie but I do think it is not nearly as bad as most here say. Maybe they were embarrassed in some way and were afraid to admit liking it. Whatever! Just see it and judge for yourself. I think you will be pleased at the time spent.
