Product Description

A box set of family fun. In 'Mrs Doubtfire' Robin Williams stars as difficult actor and husband, Daniel Hillard, who separates acrimoniously from his wife (Sally Field) and receives a court order limiting his visits to his children. As a result he dresses up as a Scottish nanny and gets gainful employment with his ex-wife looking after his own kids! In 'Dunston Checks In', the owner of a five-star hotel, Mrs Dubrow (Faye Dunaway), has discovered that a prestigious hotel guide-book is about to anonymously assess her hotel for its six-star rate. The hotel's manager had promised his two sons that they would go on a belated family holiday but is ordered by his boss to forget those plans and concentrate on making sure everything is perfect for the inspectors. Meanwhile Lord Rutledge (Rupert Everett), a jewel thief who uses an Orangutan called Dunston as his accomplice, has just checked in. When Dunston manages to get lost in the hotel and is befriended by the manager's ten-year-old son, Kyle, mayhem and chaos ensue. Whilst in 'Baby's Day Out', young baby Bink has it all; the heir to a fortune, he spends every day being pampered, bathed and fed. He also enjoys hearing his favourite story, 'Baby's Day Out'. Until one day, when Bink is abducted by a gang of crooks disguised as baby photographers. Determined to get their hands on Bink's money, the inept villains have reckoned without the infant's own wanderlust...

From Amazon.co.uk

Only a mother could love John Hughes' comedy Baby's Day Out. For anyone else, the nappy soon starts to stink. Baby Bink is kidnapped by three inept crooks, but the child escapes from their hideaway, leading to a chase through the city. Bink's journey follows the story line of his favourite bedtime book, Baby's Day Out: he goes to a zoo, a construction site, and a retirement home. Hughes, though, is following his accountant's favourite bedtime tale, "Let's rewrite Home Alone again", but with very little of the humour or impact of that smash. A number of scenes revolve around the crushing or incineration of Joe Mantegna's groin, not exactly average family fare. By way of small compensation there are some moments of levity with the crooks and a gorilla. --Keith Simanton, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Another youthful romp from 90s John Hughes (who also gave us the first 3 Home Alones, as well as Flubber), Baby's Day Out does boast a lot of the same pros and cons as its brethern: good, colourful production values, a zany yet moving score from veteran Bruce Broughton (Silverado, Tombstone, Miracle on 34th Street (coincidentally, another Hughes project) that does take cues from the Carl Stalling tradition, and the odd funny sight gag in the Three Stooges/Warner Bros. tradition, but is also very light on plot, characters and even logic, given how much Baby Bink travels around a bustling city without being noticed by one single person or causing any sort of major alarm.

Children, especially the young, will take in the film's simple charms and goofiness, but there is little here for anyone above the age of 6, except for those who grew up with it or die-hard Hughes completionists.

This is in the style of Home Alone, but instead of taking two thirds of the film to establish the setting for the slapstick, with this film the slapstick starts straight away.
It has echoes of Harold lloyd, Buster Keaton, Chaplin, Mr Bean. In fact, if you can name any slapstick-style comedy, this probably has similarities.
A great, fun and entertaining film with a bit of American-pink-fluffy-moments stuff thrown in for good measure at the end.

Hughes makes a confident return to action packed family fun with the epic adventures of Bink,the victim of a bungled kidnap attempt by 3 inept crooks.Utilising a host of deadly martial skills he tracks down and slaughters the crooks in innovative ways,feeding 1 to a gorilla and setting the genitals of another alight.
never has such menace been portrayed by an actor who is too young to speak

This movie is absolutely hilarious.
The 3 bumbling kidnappers are continually outwitted by a super cute angelic baby boy.
It really is laugh a minute and Joe Mantegna is very funny in the role.
The scene in the park with the kidnappers and the cops is side splitting.
If you feel down then watch this movie. It's guaranteed to make you laugh.

Baby's day out is a lovely film that children and adults will just adore.

I've watched this film many times as a child and my mother (a childminder)has just bought. It is Certainly a film for all ages as my freind and I (18 & 19), two children aged 8 yrs and my mum, who's age is on a strictly need to know basis, found it enjoyable and endearing.

This film is about three men who masquerade as baby photographers. They then kidnap a baby from a very wealthy couple to hold for ransom. Once they have the baby the fun really begins, as they have no idea how to look after a child. Baby Bink (what a name!) manages to escape from the con artists, and goes on an adventurous daytrip, visiting wondrous places and seeing fantastic sights, the only problem is, he's travelling alone! As the bumbling trio are in hot pursuit, baby Bink is cool, calm and totally unaware of the havoc he wreaks. "Baby's Day Out" is a hilarious mix of comedy and incredible special effects.

I can not recommend this film enough, so buy it, and enjoy the laughs. You will not be disappointed.

This film isn't the best film ever made, but it's great fun for children. I remember it distinctly from my own childhood (not a terrifically long time ago!) and I was delighted to get it here on Amazon.

Great Saturday evening entertainment for kids and families.

Having spent time looking after my new granddaughter, I found this a lovely happy and extremely funny film. Very clever'plot'. You must pay attention at the very beginning to get the very best from it. Enjoy! If you liked three men and a baby you will like this.
