A startling lack of taste pervades Superbabies, a sequel offering further proof that bad jokes still aren't funny when coming from the mouths of babes.

Movie Info

Directed by Bob Clark, Super Babies: Baby Geniuses 2 follows a new generation of ultra-smart talking toddlers who have landed in the center of a dastardly scheme perpetrated by media mogul Bill Biscane (Jon Voight). With the help of Kahuna (Leo, Myles, and Gerry Fitzgerald); part spy, part superhero, all baby Archie (Michael and Max Iles); Finkleman (Jordan and Jared Scheiderman); Alex (Joshua and Maxwell Lockhart); and Rosita (Keana and Maia Bastidas), the youngsters set off in hopes of

That's the thing about children when it comes to movies: They're not that discriminating. They can be perilously easy to please, which is why it's important that their parents protect them from films like Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2.

Why? Seriously, why? Why would anyone make a sequel to Baby Geniuses, a 1999 film whose existence, from its title on down, appeared to be a cruel joke about the gullibility of the lowest common denominator?

No worry about brainwashing kids through this movie, though. They probably won't be that entertained.

The action sequences are phony-looking; the dialogue sounds largely improvised on the fly; the laughs are few and far between; and the acting ... is, to put it kindly, wooden.

The first Baby Geniuses, released in 1999, was one of the most inane, humorless, ill-conceived, poorly acted comedies of the year. As difficult as it is to imagine, the sequel is even worse.

Apart from Jon Voight, slumming and turning in a rather droll, if lonely, performance as the German-accented villain, the movie amounts to cynical, cutesy claptrap.

[It's] the sort of intellectually offensive children's movie one would make if one knew nothing about children.

December 19, 2004 Full Review Source:

Clark's CGI-induced rugrat romp is about as inspiring in its hilarity as a diaper rash. Exceedingly nonsensical and...excuse the intended pun-infantile

Like dadaist art, Baby Geniuses challenge the artist-audience contract: We *hear* the babies talking, but we clearly *see* that they aren't.

To call this immeasurably terrible movie 'stupid and nonsensical' would be an insult to stupid and nonsensical movies.

It is offensive on so many levels. First, let's just call SuperBabies what it is: child abuse.

This unnecessary sequel to 1999's Baby Geniuses is so bad it makes the Olsen twins' catalog of work look like Laurence Olivier's Shakespearean output.

Sure, it's a cute movie, but nothing works. Everything is excruciating, even with Jon Voight's somewhat decent acting as a German villain. It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.
