    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Bad films are easy to make, but a film as unpleasant as Baby Geniuses' achieves a kind of grandeur.

    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    Formulated on an idiotic idea and develops a predictably lackluster motion picture from it.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 9+

A bad sitcom of a movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the humor here centers around children using salty adult language, repeated groin-bashing and -- you guessed it -- diaper activities. And though this is a film that would seemingly appeal to young children, the sexual innuendo and roughhousing make it appropriate, inexplicably, only for tweens. Some kids may enjoy the diaper gags, but overall the humor is too crass and misguided to recommend to them. And even among tweens, those who feel insulted by bad TV sitcoms shouldn't risk it.
