SEX/NUDITY 2 - Some sexual innuendo. A few kisses. We see a woman in bed
wearing a tank top.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Mostly played for laughs: In several scenes, a toddler
punches, kicks and flips adults. Toddlers make radio-controlled robots punch, kick and
shoot lasers at several people. A woman punches another woman in the face. Toddlers
swinging on ropes knock men down. Twice, a boy hits a man in the head with an iron, then
jumps on the end of a ski, causing the other end to flip up and hit the man in the crotch.
A boy sprays disinfectant in a man's face, shoves a bar of soap in his mouth and pokes him
in the eyes. In two scenes, someone pulls a boy by his nose ring. A boy tosses a wrench
onto a man's belly. Men stuff a boy into a gym bag, and men hold a boy on the ground while
a woman pulls a bag over him. We briefly see a man holding a gun. Toddlers kick a punching
bag over and it nearly hits a boy. A boy walks into traffic and is nearly hit by several
cars. We hear a man fall down a flight of steps. A man falls out of a roller coaster and
into a pond. Men run into a clothesline and fall down. A man falls from a rope ladder
leading up to a helicopter (he's dazed at the time, and we later see him with a bandage on
his head). A boy hides in a bag of dirty diapers -- some have yellow stains on them --
that are apparently very smelly. We see two men picking their noses.
PROFANITY 3 - An anatomical reference, a mild scatological reference,
several mild obscenities and lots of insults. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Scientific experimentation, greed, kidnapping, family life,
talking babies, strong babies, surrogate motherhood, adoption.
MESSAGE - Babies are much more intelligent and resourceful than adults think
