Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is a sequel of a movie that regularly appears on the lists of the worst movies ever made. This movie is so mindnumbingly bad that your kids could actually lose brain cells watching it.

What's the story?

In this sequel to one of the great bad movies of all time, Kahuna (as in the big...) rescues children and talks to them in fake baby talk. He sticks up for his fellow babies against the evil Bill Biscane (Jon Voight). Biscane is trying to turn babies' minds to mush through bad television. "I'm your worst nightmare, a small fry with a big attitude!" Kahuna sort of pronounces before he does his version of Home Alone 1, 2, 3 and 4 and goes after Biscane and his crew. While no one gets too hurt, it's still bizarre to see babies acting violently... In a final reassuring sop to parents, it turns out that all the gooing and gaggahing of the babies are really deep thoughts.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Toddlers acting cute -- sort of, well, not really, well, actually, SUPER BABIES: BABY GENIUSES 2 may be the most irritating movie of the year. Digitally animated mouths move and smart aleck things drop out. This film turns out to be as incomprehensible as their mutterings, and if you feel the need to see something talk that shouldn't, rent Babe.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about whether or not they think media (like the bad TV programming in the show) affects them and if so, how.

Beyond horrid

Recently renting this film for a baby-sitting job, I found I lost quite a few brain cells. This has to be the most horrid, no beyond horrid sequel ever made. A SEQUEL MADE TO A HORRID MOVIE! What a suprise. At least it kept the kids busy.
