Baby's Day Out (Widescreen/Full Screen) (Bilingual) [Import]

What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Baby Bink is out on the town for the day, visiting wondrous places and seeing fantastic sights. The only problem is, he is traveling alone! Frantically hunted by his mother and turned into a celebrity by the media, Baby Bink stays one step ahead of a trio of bumbling con artists eager to collect the reward money being offered by his wealthy parents.
Only a mother or a certified baby-phile could love this John Hughes comedy (he wrote and coproduced it). Aside from that endorsement, the diaper starts to stink. Baby Bink is kidnapped by three inept crooks, but the child escapes from their hideaway, leading to a chase through the city. Bink's journey follows the story line of his favorite bedtime book, Baby's Day Out, and he goes to a zoo, a construction site, and a retirement center. Hughes is following his accountant's favorite bedtime tale, "Let's rewrite Home Alone again," but with very little of the humor or impact of that smash. A number of scenes center on the crushing or incineration of Joe Mantegna's groin, not exactly family-fare yuks. There are some moments of levity with the crooks and a gorilla. --Keith Simanton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a hilariously funny movie about a wealthy couple(Lara Flynn Boyle, Matthew Glave), whose precious baby is kidnapped all because Mrs. Cotwell wanted her son's photo in the newspapers. The thugs disguise themselves as photographers and trick her into leaving them alone with her son. But in the hilarity that follows, Baby Bink proves that he is not so helpless as he leads his captors on a wild goose chase around Chicago.
The whole family can watch this movie together,with great scenes of Chicago, and a wonderfully acted morality tale showcased in one of the best ways possible.-- Through the eyes of a child.
Always one step ahead of his would be captives, he leads them through parks, construction sites and an ape house at the zoo. The best part of all is when they finally get their hands on him just as the cops come up to ask about their vehicle. Trying to hide baby Bink under his coat, Eddie gets a little warm downstairs. By the time the cops leave and he is able to remove his coat from his lap, he is on fire. His buddy stomps him out again and again ("THAT is how you put out campfires")
I laughed so hard at this movie I was crying. Not really for children, but a great comedy for teens and adults.
A definite recommendation for all...
I view it differently. I see it as John Hughes creating a Kubrick-esque final statement on live cartoons. The film is hilarious at moments, even after watching it several times. The most amazing thing is the performance of the two young principals, the Worton twins. The director, by whatever magic, manages to infuse the "Baby Bink" performances with wit, and a significant tongue-in-cheek aspect. Yes, the gonads on fire joke is a bit on the nose, but the way John Hughes takes it to the extreme of this movie, who would dare to try and top that? And how could you even accomplish such a feat?
In any event, this movie is a delight. And if you are curious about the process of making it, including some of the most incredible stunts performed by none other than Vern "Mini-Me" Troyer (uncredited as an actor, but mentioned on several occasions by the director in the commentary), listen to the commentary and laugh about the process, too!
I do not dislike Baby's Day Out I just think it should be known that movies like this exsist.
And how nice to see Fred Thompson actually smile (for once). My neighbor suggested this video to me and I pressured the public library to get it -- as I needed a laugh, bad.
Watching this, I couldn't mope. Watching all the adventures of the story book come true was too too cool. It looked like Chicago as the setting.
So that's where the producers of the first TOY STORY got that idea of crossing a busy avenue dodging oncoming traffic. But that took some doing with the truck actually going over the active boy. Some special effects!
And that scene with Joe M. hanging from the shut down machinery of a high rise building during construction reminded me of Doris Day in MIDNIGHT LACE.
This was a laughable film -- in every way. Look for it at the video stores or better yet, buy it from Amazon.com
