According to Pajiba, the fine folks at 20th Century Fox are not just looking to make massive sequels to movies like Independence Day, they also want to make completely random movies about popular TV commercial characters. The studio is apparently putting together a new flick about none other than those wacky E*Trade talking babies everyone seems to love oh, so very much.
This is the worst time of the year because some folks just love making up weird stuff near April Fool’s Day to gain lots and lots of attention for themselves. Unfortunately, this doesn’t appear to be one of those situations. This is a real idea, and it’s apparently actually happening.
According to the reports, the movie would be about a group of these talking babies on a massive mission to get to the other side of the local playground. Hmmp.
It wasn’t that long ago that Geico’s Cavemen were the rock stars; everyone loved them and they eventually even got themselves a TV show. Remember that? Yeah, we still to this DAY have to deal with Cavemen commercials, and they ran their course about 26 years ago. So now, because people love these adorable and somewhat creepy little post-pubescent tots, you’ll have to swallow everything that comes along with it, which means stuff like this movie and probably lots and lots and lots and lots more commercials.
I can admit these kids were funny the first few times, but c’mon now. Seriously, Hollywood? As soon as they replaced the real E*Trade baby with this new kid, all of their magic was lost forever.
