Big Baby


When a mad scientist, Dr. Simon, invents a genetic transformation machine, a group of evil businessmen scheme to steal his billion-dollar idea. But before they get the chance, Dr. Simon’s 2-year-old grandson accidentally turns his body into that of a 30-year-old man and runs off!

Dove Review

Big Baby features Grandpa Simon (Kip Gilman), a science whiz who has invented a multimillion-dollar molecular enhancement machine that can turn a seed into a full-grown flower in the matter of seconds. When his grandson, Bobby (Matthew Muelot), accidentally fiddles with the machine and turns himself into a 30-year-old man (Bobby Lawrence), Grandpa Simon must turn Bobby back into a baby while keeping dangerous thieves from stealing and selling his invention.

It takes Grandpa Simon’s reversal formula and lots of running in circles to turn Bobby age 2 again, but Bobby dodges police officers and thieves thanks to his big sister, Avery (Alana Baer), who quickly learns that growing up and assuming responsibility enhances relationships.

Big Baby weighs heavy the value of owning your actions, putting family and friends above self, and never allowing money to rule decisions, making this film Dove-approved for all ages.

The Dove Take:

When a 2-year-old boy stumbles on an invention that makes him 30 years old, his family is in for a fun, lighthearted adventure that is suitable for all ages.
