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

    This movie wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It's still not that good though.

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

    Formulaic and deeply unfunny.
  5. About as endearing as unanesthetized gum surgery.
  6. The laughs are few, far between and pretty darn faint in this comedy.
  7. 10
    There are ticklish moments, but no real laughs.

    A thoroughly misguided, unfunny film that proves you shouldn't beat a dead horse.
  9. The hokey dialogue and witless physical gags keep everything painful and hectoring.
  10. A stupid comedy with toddlers talking like hip '90s grown-ups.
  11. 0
    Trying to encapsulate the movie's storyline is not possible; it doesn't appear to have one.

    The worst movie of 1999.
  13. 0
    A horrible, horrible film that wears out its welcome before its opening credits.
  14. One way to get through Baby Geniuses is to think about whether it really is the worst movie you've ever seen. Probably not, but pretty darn close.

    There must be a standard as to how bad movies get, but this is just ridiculous. Hard to believe they made a sequel to this considering how badThere must be a standard as to how bad movies get, but this is just ridiculous. Hard to believe they made a sequel to this considering how bad this movie was. The idea for it is the worst I've heard of, and this movie might just match up to how bad Howard the duck was.
