Storyline

Baby Bink couldn't ask for more; he has adoring (if somewhat sickly-sweet) parents, he lives in a huge mansion, and he's just about to appear in the social pages of the paper. Unfortunately, not everyone in the world is as nice as Baby Bink's parents; especially the three enterprising kidnappers who pretend to be photographers from the newspaper. Successfully kidnapping Baby Bink, they have a harder time keeping hold of the rascal, who not only keeps one step ahead of them, but seems to be more than a little bit smarter than the three bumbling criminals.

Trivia

The gorilla suit used in this film was the same suit John Alexander wore to play Digit in Gorillas in the Mist (1988). Both films had Rick Baker creating the animatronic effects, and he made alterations to the suit for this film since the character is supposed to be a western lowland gorilla as opposed to being a mountain gorilla.

Quotes

Norby: Eddie?
Eddie: Huh?
Norby: You're a smart guy. How do you tell the front from the back on these diapers?
Eddie: Aren't there pockets in the front?
Norby: [looks it over] That's very funny. The front and the back are the same!
Eddie: Then it probably don't make no difference. Put him in them regular baby clothes. That fruit suit's a dead give away that he's a rich kid.

Cute, friendly, and smelly diapers.
25 April 1999 | by Angel-93See all my reviews

Great film in my opinion. Baby Bink is unbelieveably cute. With his dimples, playfulness, and giggle, it is hard to believe why it bombed. I think it deserves major props for being kid-friendly, instead of the hard-core things people are used to seeing. It is great for all- ages, a 10 out of 10, spectacular!
