BabyCo is the world's leading manufacturer in baby products. However, what the public doesn't know, is that Dr Kinder and Dr Heep, two of its most brilliant scientists, are tirelessly working in complete secrecy to crack the indecipherable code to "baby talk": a highly sophisticated language, and the key to the secrets of the universe. But, before long, problems arise when mischievous Sly, the smartest of the toddlers, escapes confinement, bent on uniting all babies to help free the ones trapped in the laboratory. Now, Dr. Kinder and Dr. Heep must find Sly before it is too late. But, can they outsmart the baby geniuses? Written by Nick Riganas

diaper gravy
5 April 2005 | by claudemercureSee all my reviews

Just what I always wanted: to hear babies recycle stale catch-phrases from other movies (if you just can't get enough of the words "show me the money", this is the movie for you).

It would be a waste of time for me to describe what is bad about this movie, because EVERYTHING is bad - the writing, the directing, the acting... This is the only film I know that causes actual physical pain. Don't be surprised if viewing of this film is followed by repeated fits of vomiting. By the time the phrase 'diaper gravy' was used for the third time, I realized that that's exactly what this movie consists of. The worst film I have seen in my life. And yet... as the worst movie ever made, it holds an undeniable fascination.

I give Baby Geniuses a 1, only because zero isn't an option
