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?


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.

Awful Film.

Really stupid movie. Babies who fight of a German baby-hater, you call that family friendly material? WTF? Whoopee Goldberg is the only good actor in this big piece of crap. I can't believe this crappy movie was directed by the exactly same guy who made A Christmas Story, A Christmas Story was a classic.

This movie is so cute!

How can anyone not like Superbabies? It's cute, funny, and has an interesting plot line. All my kids (even my 15 year old) have seen it, and they all love it. I would definately recommend this to anyone!

People who like this may need mental help

I decided to watch this because I was bored. Then I was finished after the first 30 minutes. The movie wasn't very scary. The scariest thing is the fact that this movie was made. This is a total waste of $20,000,000. It wasn't violent or sexual or profane, there was one use of a cigar. But a baby tries stopping the guy from using it and then it becomes a fight of bad dialogue. The movie is racially stereotypical and dumb on so many levels. Please do yourself a good favour and stay away from this garbage. Freddy got fingered was better than this.
