5.0 out of 5 stars Pure slapstick magic! September 11, 2005
If you are a fan of the classic Three Stooges or Marx Brothers movies, "Baby's Day Out" is for you! This movie is one of the best slapstick movies made since the classics of the 30's and 40's. The timing of the gags, the completely logical yet completely impossible setups, and the skill of the actors come together to make this one of the most hilarious movies I've seen! I was grateful when the director would switch to scenes of the parents of the "kidnapped" baby, just so I could catch my breath. And of course, the the baby (played by twins, as usual) is cute enough to make the hardest heart melt, especially at the inevitable happy ending. It's not "Waiting for Godot" or anything, but it's a great way to spend an hour and a half, just being entertained!

5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine that---a baby who's smarter than his kidnappers! November 22, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I remember seeing this movie in the theater when it came out and I finally managed to get it on tape this Thanksgiving. It's as funny now as it was back then. Why these three ditzes are holding a baby for ransom in the first place isn't really explained; it's pretty obvious that they don't know thing number one about taking care of a baby. But the scenes which make this movie one of my favorites include the incident involving the cigarette lighter, Joe Mantegna doing battle with the gorilla, and Nordby's completely off the wall rendition of "Mary Had a Little Lamb". (It followed her to work one DAY!!...and Mary lost her job!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Eddie, Norby, and Veeko Should be Very Quiet Inmates September 4, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
If I were in the shoes of the three thugs who kidnapped Baby Bink, I wouldn't want anyone to know how I was foiled by a nine-month-old, especially one who helped put me behind bars.
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.

The first time I saw this movie, I laughed until I couldn't breathe. It harkens back to the very best Sweet Pea / Popeye cartoons, and involves three, otherwise very likeable, bumbling villain and a baby on the loose for his first taste of the world at large. Very good fun.

By A Customer

Really a good family movie--our 6 and 3 1/2 year olds love to watch again and again--and we don't mind not having to listen to Pokemon and Barney, either (at least for a few hours!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby;s day out: a laugh riot May 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Do not listen to the critic about the movie. This movie is without a doubt the funniest movie that I have ever seen. It's right up there with Mel Brook's Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles. The shinnanigans that the baby gets into is out of this world. Especially at the zoo and the construction site. You will laugh yourself silly when you see this movie. It is one of the funniest family movies ever made. If you like to laugh, you owe it to yourself to buy this movie. You will laugh till you cry. Enjoy it with yourself and your family.

A Kid's Review
The people who give this a 1 or 2 stars are people who either have no sense of humor. Or are from those Adult's who watch Idiotic movies... And have no sense humor, are JERK'S... than this is not the movie you're looking for. But, if you love these heartwarming Adventurous movie's with Innocent Humor's than this is the one you're looking for.
Kid's will love this a lot! but Adult's especially those too-quiet women's or mothers like mine would rather read a book, buy clothes in market's, or would rather write comment's on the internet.
Those are over hearted Adult's...
This movie is about a baby who is kidnapped by a three Dumb as Dirt kidnappers who Kidnapped the kid for five-million dollars. and when they bring the baby to there apartment.He he he.. that's when the fun begins.
the only breaks the kidnappers get are falling off building's or jumping down ditches... HA ha ha, and getting there foot smashed by the cars on traffic.
Which the baby goes to. it's really funny. I don't know why my mother and father doesn't like this movie. they complain about silly thing's like my father doesn't like those actors in it. and my mother doesn't like the screaming in it.
If you like these kind's of movie's than it's perfect for you. if you don't like it than don't buy it, or you're going to give it mean and bad review's again. so watch it.
Let's have walk in the park.

4.0 out of 5 stars "THAT'S how you put out camp fires!" May 25, 2006
If you remember that old TOM & JERRY cartoon about a baby who crawls out of home and onto the skyscraper, then chances are you know what to expect in BABY'S DAY OUT. After all, somebody finally had a way to translate a familiar and risky situation to the big screen, which is fine and dandy, tried and true. Credibility-wise, this is one of the most ludicrous movies you'll ever see, but it's fun and I would think almost anyone would enjoy it. It's basically "Home Alone" out on the streets and with a baby instead of a small boy.

A baby goes wandering all over the big city with two kidnappers chasing it. People are everywhere but nobody sees the baby but the bad guys?! Hey, I told you it made no sense, but there are so many laughs in here, so many goofy slapstick routines that work that it's worth your time to check it out. I've seen it a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed it each time, as have my guests - from kids to older folks.

To movie buffs, it's kind of fun also to see Joe Pantoliano and Joe Mantegna playing roles in which profanity is at a minimum, and they are in it only for laughs. It's a long way from most of their roles. Mantegna is especially impressive with his comedy. I was shocked how funny he was.

The only criticism I had, other than totally preposterous story being a little too far-fetched, is that one scene (at the construction site) went on too long.

Overall, this is a nice entertainment with a lot of laugh-out-loud scenes. If you get a kick out of seeing a baby constantly laugh, giggle and have a great time, then you'll really love this.

Cute kid trapped in a thuddingly unfunny script. Does Joe Mantegna list this dog of a movie on his résumé? Watch him in SEARCHING FOR BOBBY FISHER instead.
