Director Bob Clark (Porky's) must be the kind of guy who finishes other people's drinks at a party: his 1999 comedy Baby Geniuses appropriated the wisecracking-baby gimmick already exhausted by the Look Who's Talking series, and this excruciating sequel tries to squeeze a few more bucks from the Spy Kids espionage formula. The hero, a seven-year-old secret agent backed up by a quartet of snarky toddlers, battles a German media baron (Jon Voight) who wants to hypnotize the populace through his cable-TV channel. The original film played for six months but earned only $27 million, which suggests how starved suburban theaters must be for matinee product. With Scott Baio and Vanessa Angel. PG, 90 min.
