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

Quotes

Sly: [sly and the other babies huddle around a sleeping lennie. sly steps up and starts chanting] You are in my power. You will obey my commands. You are in my power. You will obey my commands. Before i take the babies home, I will drive to Babyco. Everything depends on my driving to Babyco.
Carrie: What are you trying to do?
Sly: I have a theory that grown ups remember our secret language in their sub-conscious. If i'm right... I can hypnotize him.

Very Good Movie
14 January 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Hello everyone, Now first of all i'd like to say that this movie was fabulous and all you reviewers should think so too.

Even though most parts of the movie were obviously fake i still thought it was hilarious to see a group of toddlers talking like adults in a way that only they could understand.

OK so yes the acting wasn't very good but who cares if it can make at least one person laugh then the director should be happy.

I think that the movie reviewers are too old to be reviewing a movie of this kind. See this movie is for kids not for adults and adults probably won't understand it as well as kids.

Next time choose reviewers who have humors!!!
