Baby's Day Out

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Say what you like about Home Alone creator John Hughes, he knows how to pen a formula picture. Though heir to a fortune, Baby Bink has never had his picture in the paper, a situation his mother (Boyle) intends to rectify. But the photographers are three bungling kidnappers (led by Mantegna), who make off with the sprog and demand a tidy ransom. The baby soon escapes, proceeding to duplicate the trip round the big city described in his favourite book, as he takes in a department store, a zoo, and finally a building site. The abductors, meanwhile, suffer humiliation as they attempt to recapture him. Cartoon crude, but quite lively.
