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

So babies can kung fu fight and understand quantum physics?
9 March 2003 | by ajc899See all my reviews

If you enjoy killing brain cells at a pace like no other see this movie. Basically this movie was a piece of crap and should have never been made. The only positive thing that comes from a movie like this is that those who see it realized that morons can succeed in Hollywood. I mean if you can sell a script about babies with infinite intelligence whats stopping you from becoming the next senator or even president? If you happen to meet the person who came up with the idea for this movie, kick them where it hurts.
