Thinking of watching Babies for family movie night...

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I have an 11, 9, 6, and 3 year old. Any reason watching this movie with them wouldn't be a good idea?

I got kinda bored watching it towards the end. I found two of the babies lives very cool and the other two were pretty boring to me.
Otherwise, I wouldn't hesitate to show it to kids of any age, assuming you're fine with them seeing naked women and babies. I'm sure it'll spark some interesting discussions about how things differ in the 4 different countries.

I've got no issues with nudity, LOL! I'm sitting here with no pants on. (In my defense, these babies have this weird need to kick like crazy against any and all waist bands).

Very good choice. DS, at 2.5, was pretty attentive the whole way through, and it was his first film in a theater. He still likes to watch the trailer on YouTube.

Just today, I asked our library to order it.

I'd like to watch this, but I know my boys (7 and 10) would be bored. They like movies with strong plots. Can't think of any other reason not to show it to them, though.

I won't mind if my 11-year-old bugs out. I'll be interested to see if he likes it.

It was a big hit. The eleven year old balked a bit, and ended up reading a book, but everyone else loved it and my daughter and I actually ended up watching it twice.

I misread this and thought you said BARBIE movie. I was going to recommend Barbie and the Diamond Castle, the music is fun

I'm sorry, I just find this line really funny....hee hee...

I've always wondered if that movie would be better with narration. (I haven't seen it yet)

We actually added our own narration and comments. DH said it was like Mystery Baby Theater 3000.

now that actually would have helped. I saw in the theatre with my 7 yo and she kept asking questions. I agree it got a bit dull at the end.

It was a lot of fun. I might even have to buy the DVD!

I was really afraid the Mongolian baby was going to be eaten by a yak. I'm glad that didn't happen. And my decidedly American six-year-old was freaking out about wanting to baby-proof the yurt.

We have a hard time not doing that to just about everything we watch around here.

And on a side note: Don't forget a live broadcast of Rifftrax around Halloween time, check your local listings.

We watched it the other night with our 8 & 4 year old and we all enjoyed it. I loved the naughty big brother and the African babies the best!

Ooohh! We watched it a couple of days ago, and really enjoyed it. My toddler appeared hipnotized by it, haha!

We watched it tonight. I loved it. My son (11) enjoyed it. We laughed at the Mongolian family's cat! OMG, what a sweet cat that was, letting the little boy pull it around by a leash like that and then clawing it. I don't have a lot of experience with cats, but I was impressed with that one!

We're going to rent it. Which babies' lives were boring, and why? (I have a clue... )
