YMMV / Baby's Day Out

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: When Bink is reunited with his parents.
  • Cult Classic: Despite being a film that almost caused the Hollywood film industry to go bankrupt, it is a cute baby adventure that explores Chicago with many beautiful visuals.
  • Ear Worm: The main theme and the "Mary Had A Little Lamb" song.
  • 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.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The scene where the baby is protected by a gorilla inside the gorilla's cage won't be funny anymore after the Killing of Harambe, which started with a 4-year-old boy falling into a zoo enclosure and being grabbed and dragged by a 400-lb gorilla (named Harambe) for 10 minutes before the gorilla was shot dead.
  • 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. Furthermore, the largest theater in Calcutta played the film for over a year straight.
  • Jerkass 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.
  • Tear Jerker: Any of the scenes with Bink's parents after he is kidnapped. While Bink's little adventures are all Played for Laughs, their grief and sadness are not.
  • What an Idiot!: When a strange man asks if he can be alone with your child (along with two other strange men), just say no.
