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

You're watching a very cute, very family, very baby-safe motion picture with your family right now! What a clever idea - Baby Geniuses! Ha! I hope when I have a baby in the future that he is a genius when he's like 10 minutes old! Then, he'd go to elementary school when he's one, middle school when he's two, high school when he's three, and Harvard when he's four! Then he'll go to Cambridge when he's five, and at age six? He'll have all the time and money he could possibly want for all the cartoons and toys in the world! Man, if that dream became a reality...(And for most of you average joes, you'll wish that was the whole premise of this movie!)
