Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 Reviews

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.

Whatever wit could be mined from the idea of breaking the code to baby talk was exhausted in the original Baby Geniuses five years ago.

The shtick is as stale and over-processed as expired Froot Loops, with references that were dated even when the original was released.

It is perhaps the most incompetent and least funny comic film ever made. There aren't even any good diaper jokes.

More than just another sequel that no one was clamoring to see, this is that rare follow-up that's actually twice as good as the original and is still a piece of junk.

There's what one can only hope is the last-ever Matrix tribute/theft, plus a mostly unfunny stew of references to the Three Stooges, Popeye, Mary Poppins, and even Casablanca. The overall effect is ghoulish.

The film's moral? Turn off the TV, young 'uns, and go outside and play! And avoid Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 matinees while you're at it.

This interminable Pampers commercial has the nerve to end with a 'TV is rotten for kids' message, when the movie itself would do far more to stunt a child's imagination (or cause a kid to burst into tears) than anything currently on television.

If anyone was clamoring for a follow-up to 1999's Baby Geniuses, they'll be happy to know that the sequel retains not only the same gimmicky premise as the original but its preference for cliche-ridden dialogue and flat-footed comedy as well.
