YMMV: Baby's Day Out
  • Cult Classic: Despite being a film that almost caused the Hollywood film industry to go bankrupted, it is a cute baby adventure that explores Chicago with many beautiful visuals.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Critics have accused the beatings the kidnappers go through fit much better in a Baby Herman cartoon than live action, where it becomes brutal and life threatening.
    • The trailer came under fire for including a shot where the lady whose bag Bink is hiding in drops it, causing it to fall over and the (fake) baby to clearly land on its head. The shot was edited out of the final film.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The cab driver, the lady with a bag, the baby nurse at Mother Goose, the veterans and the gorilla. In short, anyone who ISN'T a main character.
  • Ear Worm: The main theme and the "Mary Had A Little Lamb" song.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: While the movie was a flop in America, it was HUGELY popular in South Asia, especially in India and Pakistan, to the point that it even had two localized remakes: Sisindri in 1995, and James Bond (no, not THAT James Bond) in 1999.
  • Jerk Ass Woobie: The kidnappers but Eddie especially, being the bossy grumpy leader as well as the one suffers the most abuse.
  • One-Scene Wonder: The gorilla scene is the most memorable part of the movie outside the climax.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Since the protagonist is a baby, it's expected.
