Baby's Day OutClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this mild comedy is full of pratfall humor -- lots of bonks on the head, groin injuries, slips and falls -- all accompanied by exaggerated expressions meant to draw laughs. Also, the baby at the center of the tale ends up in all sorts of dangerous situations, including crawling through city traffic and cavorting through a construction zone, all without an accompanying adult and without injury. Kids will likely find the baby and the hijinks of the criminals funny, though the concept of kidnapping might make young kids uneasy. One bad guy is particularly rude to the other two.
- Sexual Content
- Not applicable.
- The bad guys fall, get slapped and punched, hit their heads/groins, get into a tug-of-war with a gorilla. One extended scene involves the baby setting a man's crotch on fire. Though the injured parties react to pain, the real consequences of their injuries are absent.
- Name-calling, of the "moron" and "idiot" variety.
- Social Behavior
- The message -- however weakly delivered -- comes when the wealthy, superficial parents of Baby Bink learn to appreciate the people in their lives, instead of just their things and their reputation.
