Slapstick B film

Well we love B films, 90s era bad movies, etc. There’s a time and a place for them! I watched this movie as a kid and my wild young boys love it. There’s babies talking, building gadgets to escape, swapping places, bad guys that aren’t scary, a teen trying to figure himself out, a helicopter rescue.. what’s not to love!? If your family is ok with potty humor (ours is) then it’s fine. 2 moments of romantic suggestion by parents. One of which is the husband kissing on the wife’s neck for a prolonged period of time. My 5yo just recently noticed it and wondered why he was doing that. My reply: “the husband is just being sweet and giving kisses to his wife.” And no other explanation needed. If you have a young kid who likes things like Home Alone then this is a good pick. Bonus, the bad guys aren’t as scary as in Home Alone!!

This is obviously meant for older kids, but the "jokes" are very childish, it is a BAD movie

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
