Storyline

'Baby Frankenstein' is a comedy-drama feature film that tells the story of young Lance and his unlikely friendship with a pint-sized, self-aware automaton. After Lance stumbles upon this 'little dude', he enlists the help of Truth, the sassy girl-next-door, to protect him from his mom's batty boyfriend, Ken Glinevich. Glinevich is hell-bent on capturing Baby Frankenstein and claiming the $50,000 reward being offered by the mysterious actual owner of Baby Frankenstein, Dauvin Lundquist. Lance finds an unlikely ally in his awkward neighbor, John, who appears to be romantically interested in Lance's mother, Kim. As the potential captors close in on Lance, Truth, and Baby Frankenstein, Lance must decide what he will risk to preserve Baby Frankenstein's freedom.

A very poor man's Harry and the Hendersons
19 July 2020 | by dkeizer05See all my reviews

A clumsy film with a classic E.T. or Harry and the Hendersons type plot where adults supposed to be playing kids get into misadventures trying to hide a runaway science experiment from corporate slimeballs and other losers. Baby Frankenstein just manages to clear unwatchable status, mostly thanks to the charming titular character and the unintentional entertainment that comes with trash-tier filmmaking.

Speaking of trashy, there are too many pointless lowbrow attempts at comedy and other adult themes to make this a family movie. The bizarre attempt of the producer to make a film using a screenplay which clearly had roles intended for child actors and replacing them with adults does not really appeal to any target audience. Perhaps it was made as an intentionally bad film, but it fails to capture the magic of something like The Room or Con Games.

Try it if you like things that are stupid.
