It's a lovely bit of blood-pressure-lowering cinema that never betrays its simple conceit.

A celebration of the gloriously mundane.

Tampa Bay Times
It's the nicest Mother's Day gift available at the movies this weekend.

As the movie goes on, these fleshy little beings turn into…well, people. And that's something to see. But Babies, without falsifying its subject, could have used a more soul-stirring sense of showbiz -- that is, a riper display of infantile special effects.

Just babies. Wonderful.

The Hollywood Reporter
As a portrait of children who are wanted and loved, it's intimate and often delightful.

Variety
Babies is refreshing in its methods, impressive in its scope and remarkable in its immediacy. That said, it's also an occasionally frustrating documentary that deprives the viewer of the comforts of exposition and cultural context.

NPR
Of course, there's no need to overthink it: If you just want to watch a baby respond to the arrival of a rooster in his bed with perfect comic timing, Babies is the movie to see.

Village Voice
Is Babies a good movie? Of course not. But that's missing the point--like asking if a porn video is a good movie. Babies gets the job done.

Babies is barely more insightful than your average Flickr photo gallery or home movie clip: it’s just infant porn for prospective parents.
