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?
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.
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.
