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

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
