""Grrr! A-BAH!"" - a review by timchuma

A very cute comedy involving loads of babies and silly adults in which Lena and Johnny have been assigned to develop a "Mighty Baby" product for a large company in Japan. As he worked on the very successful La Brassiere (2001) previously, Johnny gets his friend Wayne to help him. The only problem is that Wayne doesn't like babies.

There is also some amusement when Johnny is interviewing a secretary and he somehow ends up with the bundle of nerves, Sabrina, who keeps dropping everything and jumps at the slightest thing.

Probably my most favourite scene in the film is the "Baby Focus Group" where they test several products with the help of their baby expert Boey. All the products fail in the session with some very funny results (and a missing baby).

Even though most of the movie is about getting as many babies on screen as possible, it's hard to resist this movie for the cute factor alone.

A couple of the sequences after the "baby capsule" scene do seem to be a bit out of place though, such as the doctor hypnotising Lena to say "Grrr! A-BAH!" all the time and Johnny having a fencing session with Wayne using chicken wings.

It's strange that if this was a Hollywood-produced movie I probably wouldn't have bothered watching it, but it did have something extra that made me like it apart from the babies.

timchuma gives this movie 6 out of 10.
