Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2
“Superbabies” is the sequel to the 1999 comedy “Baby Geniuses.” This episode builds on the premise of the first film — namely, that baby talk is actually an advanced form of communication forgotten by most adults. This time, the babies discover an evil plot orchestrated by the power-hungry Bill Biscane (John Voight). Biscane’s media empire, in partnership with clueless day-care owners Stan (Scott Baio) and Jean (Vanessa Angel) Bobbins, plans to start a new television network for children. But hidden beneath the seemingly harmless programming are subliminal messages that will help Biscane control the minds of both children and adults around the world. Biscane’s arch rival, the superbaby Kahuna (Gerry, Leo and Myles Fitzgerald), shows up and enlists the help of the other babies, giving them superpowers and encouraging them to believe that they can stop Biscane if they work together.
“Superbabies” is a waste of time. There are cute moments, but they are unfortunately brief. It’s hard to imagine that anyone would be amused by this film. And even if children do enjoy it, the film has nothing to engage or interest adults who might want to take their kids to see it. The film is simply an unintelligent failure at entertainment.
