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.

Technical Specs


Did You Know?

The amusement park is the one at Circus Circus in Las Vegas, NV.

Revealing mistakes: Obvious stunt double when Goon Bob falls down the stairs.

Dickie: [notices Goon Bob wincing in pain as he walks downstairs and out of the house] What's going on?
Goon Ray: Looks like a work related injury, I better go up and see what's going on.
[goes upstairs and sees a grinning Sly and the same ski trap that just got the other goon]
Goon Ray: Tough Guy Huh? Well you're about to meet your worst nightmare!
Sly: Goon, That is some lame dialog.
Goon Ray: You really think I'm gonna walk over that ski and you're gonna jump on the end and that ski is gonna jump up and hit me in the gonads and I'm gonna scream, make a funny face and fall down the stairs... Well I don't think so.

User Review

It makes me hate myself

Rating: 1/10

I rented this movie off sky so that I could cuddle up to my girlfriend on the sofa. She left me two weeks later and I totally blame the film. I'm only writing this now with no real recollection of how the story unfolded,(I thank my cleansing unconscious for that) but a sort of painful residue which has collected within me is there instead. I only remember uncomfortable pain and thinking to myself Christopher?(Lloyd that is), how can you bear to involve yourself with this people??!!! Boo Hoo!!!! I cursed my error of judgement as soon as I saw the first lip-syncing effort, I looked into my then girlfriends eyes and like a dog trying to have a poo while being watched I slurred "Erm..sorry". Please don't watch this, some films are so bad they are good which is true when everyone involved are morons which is not the case in this film, morons mixed with mediocrities, and that only leads to confusion and ups and downs which is infinitely worse.
