Baby: Secret Of The Lost Legend Parody/MST3K Review

Image

Baby: Secret Of The Lost Legend (1985) is a movie that is a part of my childhood, though I don't think I ever saw it when I was a child. What I remember most about the movie was owning the Topps trading card set.

It wasn't until recently that I finally saw the movie itself. Seeing the crudeness of the special effects in the card photos, and how dingy the whole thing looked even in stills, I was expecting something dreadful. I was pleasantly surprised to find a movie that, while not bad in and of itself, is so perfectly ripe for an R-rated parody remake that I can't believe Paul Feig didn't chose this over Ghostbusters. His brand of raunchy, juvenile humor is so perfectly suited for this movie, that I just had to write up this review/rundown of the movie (kinda in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000), pointing out where parody humor would have been more appropriate in place of the movie's semi-seriousness.

SPOILER WARNING: This article will run through the entire movie, and as such, it will spoiler any surprises for you. Not that there is much to spoil. You are shown who the villain is in the first few minutes, and you know there are dinosaurs in the movie. Anything else, you could figure out on your own without me telling you. Also, this article is going to be very image-intensive and long. You'll likely read through it quicker than it took me to write it, but I just wanted to give you a heads-up before you proceed any further.
