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

Silly, But Not That Stupid
24 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Baby Geniuses" is a movie that can be best described as a live-action cartoon. It's certainly not cinematic perfection. Some people have said it's idiotic. But in my opinion, it's not that stupid. It's just very, very silly. You just have to enjoy this sort of movie to not hate it. There are several big name actors appearing; Kathleen Turner, Christopher Lloyd, Dom DeLuise and Kim ("Sex and the City") Catrall. There aren't any memorable performances, though. The main characters are the babies, and their cartoonish hi-jinx (even if the hi-jinx doesn't always work). "Baby Geniuses" is clearly not for everyone. It's just for the few who can appreciate it.
