Baby Geniuses

In 1981 Kathleen Turner was irresistible as the sexy lead in Body Heat.  Today she is reduced to a screaming shrew as Dr. Elena Kinder supervising a secret underground world of BABYCO, a worldwide leader in infant care products.  She is lost in a weak extension of Look Who's Talking and its two sequels.

This is Rugrats with live kids who have the wisdom of the ages until they reach two and loose all their insights and become babbling fools on their way to adulthood.

The twists and turns, kidnaping and general absurd behavior of the adults are balanced by the kids cool clear minds.  The kid's lines are dubbed in.  Christopher Lloyd plays Heep, Kinder's assistant and Peter MacNicol plays Dr. Dan Bobbins; his wife is played by Kim Cattrall.

Dull and difficult to sit through is the best one can say for this non genius film.
