Awful on every level imaginable
I'm a sucker for "so bad it's good movies", so while browsing through the Bottom 100 list, I checked out this movie's page. I remember seeing ads for this on TV when I was a little kid and thinking how stupid it looked. Reading the comments posted had me laughing, and I decided I had to check this one out.

This movie is horrendous on every level. The acting is absolutely atrocious. Christopher Lloyd gives the closest thing to a decent performance, but other than that, awful. Kathleen Turner, Kim Cattrel, Peter MicNicol, all terrible. The special effects are also a joke. The lip movements of the babies rarely match up with the words being spoken. And what was up with Sly's laugh? It sounded nothing like his speaking voice.

Ah, what else. Ah yes, the plot. A plot doesn't even really exist in this movie until it's near the end. The film begins(after a painful-to-watch press conference given by Turner's character) with an expose on the secret underground baby lab. The stuff that goes on down here is ridiculous. You've got babies playing full blown symphonies on synthesizer pianos and building replicas of the pyramids of Giza out of Legos. Hardcore. Perhaps most ridiculous is how they spend so much effort locking the baby Sly in his little house, only to make it incredibly easy for him to touch the electronic lock panel on his door.

More unbelievable than anything in the entire movie is the montage set to soft music at the end of the film. What the? What is the audience supposed to be doing, tearing up?

This film is an absolute disgrace. Awful acting, awful special effects, awful plot inconsitiencies.

Awful Movie.
