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

Deep in the headquarters of a baby supplies corporation is a secret lab that is studying the communication of babies in the belief that they have a secret language and that the uninfluenced mind of a baby holds the secrets of the universe. However one baby is giving them problems Sly, who was separated from his twin at birth and put in the lab while his brother went out to live in a normal home. On escaping the lab, Sly flees to the local mall where he meets his twin and gets accidentally taken home by Robin while his brother is mistakenly taken back to the lab. With the two brothers now under threat, the babies in and outside the lab plan an audacious plot to bring down the corporation.
I was on a ferry going to Northern Ireland and, just as it was docking I caught literally the opening two minutes of this film before I had to leave my cabin and get my car. I was taken by the potential of the film and it stuck in my head. Skip forward about a year and the film was on terrestrial TV so I sat to watch it. Sadly the film not only failed to turn a silly idea into a tongue in cheek comedy but it also failed to do anything worth watching. The sheer absurdity of the idea could have worked had the film given us plenty of jokes for adults as well as mocking itself as it went. However it didn't go anywhere and even appeared to take itself seriously!
Although the baby chats are occasionally amusing it is mostly unfunny. Kids may enjoy seeing babies fight and run around but I doubt the age group this is aimed at will have the slightest idea what is going on. With the exception of the opening 2 minutes there is almost nothing that adults will enjoy here. I can't put it any clearer add a bit of knowing humour and this might have worked as it is it is just awful.
The adult cast should hang their heads in shame they clearly hoped for another child/adult hit like `Look Whose Talking' but they ended up with the sort of film that belongs in a diaper. Turner, Lloyd, Cattrall and MacNicol all could have been much more fun but instead all play it seriously and thus kill any fun it may have been. The kids are OK and somehow managed to be manipulated by the director to do what the film demands, however, it is obvious that the film needed them to be `cute' which they spectacularly fail to be. The special effects used to move their mouths gives them a real creepy look and the way that more complex moves are performed by adults with the baby heads superimposed on their bodies is, well, just stupid looking and a little unnerving.
Overall I do believe that with some really strong adult humour (see Toy Story) and some better adult performances to inject some fun into it, that this could have been a better film. As it is, it is just awful and even if my kids begged I wouldn't watch it again it would be for their own good!
