Look Who’s Talking Too Horrible to Watch

March 31, 2010 Leave a comment

So, let’s be honest, we all love those eTrade babies. They’re hilarious. Remember the golf one? Or the one where that baby puked? Good stuff. Babies are funny. Regardless of the fact that it’s basically the same exact ad concept as the Geico Cavemen but with a positive spin, it’s still an entertaining ad, and i didn’t mind my dad and aunt both forwarding it to me. Also, name another stock trading site, I dare you.

But, today they announced an eTrade MOVIE starring the babies. A talking baby movie? I liked that movie in 1989 when it was “Look Who’s Talking”. Or its sequel “Look Who’s Talking Too” or “Baby Geniuses” or “Baby Geniuses 2”. Maybe, though, I’m proving their point that a talking baby movie can’t possibly fail. Or maybe we’re gonna have another NBC Cavemen sitcom situation, and it will be a total flop. Can a viral video really create enough plot and palatable jokes to fill a whole hour and a half long movie? I’m anxious to see what happens (although you couldn’t pay me to see the movie). Either way I hope it’s filmed completely with a webcam.
