Babies Rule in the Latest Installment of Family Film Series Featuring
Pint-Size Detectives and Big Laughs

"The tech-savvy toddlers are back…and this time they’re Europe bound!  Audiences will go gaga over Baby Geniuses and the Mystery of the Crown Jewels, the third title in the laugh-packed Baby Geniuses movie series, which made its DVD debut from Anchor Bay Entertainment on February 5, 2013.  Directed by Sean McNamara and featuring Jon Voight (National Treasures: Book of Secrets, Transformers, Mission: Impossible), the brand-new family feature-film follows the international adventures of a band of brilliant baby investigators, who take Europe – and deliver loads of laughs along the way. 

“The third time’s definitely the charm with this latest addition to the popular Baby Geniuses film series,” said Erin Carter, Executive Director of Brand Marketing for Anchor Bay Entertainment.  “We are delighted to bring all the fun and hilarious hijinks of Baby Geniuses and the Mystery of the Crown Jewels on DVD to kids and families nationwide.”

When the Queen of England’s crown jewels mysteriously go missing, there’s only one team for the job: The Baby Squad!  The Baby Agent Bureau of International Espionage and Safety (aka B.A.B.I.E.S.) calls upon the team, consisting of little Skip Bobbins, three of his toddler pals and his family, the world’s only grown-ups who understand the language of babies, to embark on a top-secret mission to find the jewels.  Using their stealth abilities and a range of high-tech gadgets to uncover important clues, the height-challenged heroes soon learn that items have begun disappearing all over Europe with no suspect in sight.  But when the rescue team starts to see the same toddler, Big Baby, wherever they go, they realize they’ve found their traveling thief!  It’s up to the Baby Squad to track down the crown jewels and return them to the Queen before Big Baby makes even more big trouble!

Featuring Jon Voight as a comical, chameleon-like cab driver, who the Baby Squad encounters throughout their European mission, Baby Geniuses and the Mystery of the Crown Jewels will have audiences from coast-to-coast crying for more!

The new title is approved for all ages by The Dove Foundation, which proclaims, “It doesn't take a genius to realize how cute this movie is.”"


My Thoughts:

I had no idea they were still making Baby Geniuses movies, so was excited to learn about this recent release.  And, this weekend, my family sat down to watch it, including my two baby geniuses. :-)  We had a blast watching the Baby Squad take Europe, as they investigate the disappearance of the Queen's crown jewels.  I was surprised to see how much my daughters enjoyed this movie, and how they were laughing at all the funny parts, like my husband and I were.  

Nowadays, it is hard to find a good family-friendly movie that everyone can enjoy, but after watching Baby Geniuses and the Mystery of the Crown Jewels this weekend, I can say safely say that this DVD is worth picking up and watching.  Parents will go goo-goo over the Baby Squad, while younger audiences will enjoy the adventures these little investigators go on, as they seek to find the whereabouts of the Queen's missing jewels.  And, at only 84 minutes in length, it will keep even the youngest of viewers attention. :-)
