Baby Geniuses (1999)
Podcaster replied to lame_username's topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsMy local newspaper reviewed this when it came out - 0 stars out of 4, which only came up for bona fide cinematic garbage.
Honey, I Blew Up The Kid and Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves
Podcaster posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsOk, "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids" is an '80s classic. It's hardly haute cinema, but it's not "Toys", either. Then there are the sequels - I only saw two of them, and neither of them are classic anything. The second movie has a giant toddler unknowingly rampaging down the Las Vegas Strip, and the third one is a terrible rehash of the original, but it's the parents having done it to themselves that time. They got Rick Moranis and most of the cast from the first one back for the second movie, and they got Rick Moranis back for the third - according to IMDB, "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves" appears to be the last live-action movie he was ever in, which is not a high note to go out on for one of the '80s most iconic nerds. "Honey, I Blew Up The Kid" even features an inexplicable Lloyd Bridges cameo.
Podcaster replied to JustinL's topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsI am also one of those people who registered only to recommend this awful movie. It's hard to find a better example of '90s schlock "comedy" with weirdly bigoted caricatures, and includes some people who don't usually get racially stereotyped in mainstream American movies - Eskimos and the Amish. My mother had the brilliant idea to have my family watch this movie back when it came out, and I'm not sure in retrospect if this was a "this is a kids' movie, let's watch it" moment, or a "let's show the little fucker how good he has it" moment. Plus it has Bruce Willis in, I believe, an inexplicable pink bunny outfit.
