No joke, 20th Century Fox is developing a movie based on the E*Trade Babies

03.30.2010

Well...

Looks like 20th Century Fox is the captain of the failboat today.

According to Pajiba, they think that a movie about the E*Trade babies is a good idea. Yes, you heard me correctly. A movie about the E*Trade babies. Now, while I know your head must be spinning a million miles an hour from the catastrophe that is this idea, I know you have questions. One of them being, "Doesn't this movie already exist?" Sort of. It's called BABY GENIUSES. However, those were super smart babies. These babies are of average intelligence, well at least a little above average, they are babies that can talk. Then you might be thinking, "Why did someone think this was a good idea?" I have no f*cking clue. Apparently they think that the people of the world are crazy enough to subject themselves to 90 minutes of that shit (which some of them are). Finally, "Didn't they learn anything from the experience of expanding the world of the Geico Cavemen?" Does it look like it?

Katie Dippold who wrote a few episodes of PARKS & RECREATION will pen the script. They are calling this a "mission movie" about a group of talking babies that are trying to make their way across a playground. I have a message for 20th Century Fox: We only need one talking baby movie and it's called LOOK WHO'S TALKING. Anything else is a waste of time. Plus, those babies creep me the hell out.

In the case that you have never seen the E*Trade baby commercials, I have provided video below. Enjoy?

Extra Tidbit: Geico Gecko, I have mad respect for you.

I think my brain stopped functioning when I read this. This should be the first of a new joblo column- "What the #$%@ Hollywood?!"

That Milkaholic Lindsey...

Funniest damned commercial in a while was "Milk-a-WHAT?" but that was good for a 30 second TV spot. Absolutely stupid to think it translates into a movie.

Holy shit. I can't possibly imagine this concept working any longer than 30 second spots. If anyone actually thinks this will work as a feature film, they are high. This is just further proof that studios like Paramount and Warner Bros are operating at a completely different level than moron farms like Fox and Sony.

Not only will it make money..

but it'll probably be pretty damn funny too. Those commercials are better than a lot of the films released in theatres recently. Such as Tooth Fairy, The Bounty Hunter, She's Out of my League, and Alice in Wonderland. yep

I fucking hate those commercials

I hated sitting in the theater and being forced to watch that crap. I actually bring an MP3 player just to drown it out.

Whatever projects 20th Century Fox has in mind....doesn't seem to surprise me anymore.

20th Century Fox is like Fox News for movie. They both came from same owner, News corp and they both suck.

DEAR

LORD!!!! Thats the worst idea that you guys at Joblo have written for me to read! HORRIBLE.

And by the sound of the "plot" they have, they might as well make a live action Rugrats movie, at least they were entertaining for more than 30 seconds and people already know who they are.

Ugh. Sorry. I'm at a loss of words.

FUCKIN SHIT THAT IS A STUPID IDEA!!

ok I'm done

Wasn't the Geico "Caveman" tv show considered to be one of the largest flops of the last decade? I guess the old saying is true, those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

They are funny commercials, but a full-length movie? Who is the brain that felt this was a good idea?

Maybe they should make E*Trade babies vs. Bay Geniuses movie instead and they can sweep the entire Razzie roster. Gosh.

Ummm...

Really? Someone saw these commercials and thought this was a bankable idea for a film? What the heck is going on with studios today? Even if Hollywood has lost it, this is just absurd, a new low in the film business.

???????????

I can't find the right 4 letter words to describe what I feel right now. I think this might replace Troll 2 as the worst film EVER. Well, either this or Marmaduke. Originality has completely left Hollywood. You suck Hollywood.
