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

Stupid? -> INTENTIONALLY!!!
5 April 2002 | by srmccarthySee all my reviews

I saw this movie on the big screen and had no opinion one way or another about it. After 3 years, while searching for the work of "Seth Adkins" I came across this movie, and the many negative comments about it! So, I rented and watched the video to see what I missed that so many found to give it such a bad rating and review. My findings are as follows:

This movie is exactly what it is presented as!

Please note the following:

It was presented as a comedy. (Is is not?). It was presented as a silly, slap-stick comedy (Is it not?). It was NEVER presented to be an academy award winner!

I personally do not care for slap-stick humor, but I have to admit that this movie was somewhat enjoyable to me.

I respect Leonard Maltin's opinion about movies, as most of the time he is right on the money. However, this is one of the few times I have to disagree with him! Why did Leonard Maltin give the movie "Fire Down Below" 2 stars and this one BOMB status?? "Fire Down Below" is supposed to be a "serious" action/drama and Leonard Maltin himself admits that it is "Laughably bad"! However, here is a move that is supposed to be funny, silly, stupid (whatever way you put it), and he dumps all over it for being exactly what it was promoted to be!!!!!!!!!

No, I do not believe this is one of my favorite movies, but I believe that it has been given a very poor review, based upon many people who desire a more mature script. It is as entertaining as just about any Slap-stick comedy I have ever seen!

(Please note: There is some language and (very little (almost un-noticeable)) sexual suggestion that you might find objectionable or object to allowing young children to witness)!
