All-Baby Reboots We'd Like to See


All-female reboots are offensive and also not cool. You know what’s not offensive and definitely cool? Reboots that only feature babies.

Jezebel is a site with a strong pro-baby stance, in that one of your editors is an actual baby who wears diapers, and of course, everyone on staff shares a deep fondness for Ariana Grande, demon-hunter, tiny chanteuse and known baby. The culture wars grow ever more fraught in the age of social media; it’s hard to say something that will please your audience in this time of identity politics and tone-correction. But we’re going to go out on a limb here, cut through the bullshit and say what everyone’s thinking: this movie would be better if it starred a baby.

Hold on a minute. None of these movies will pass the Bechdel test, because all the actors will be babies and can’t actually speak. Just kidding, I already hate all these movies as well as all these anti-feminist babies. I’ll make an exception only for Ghostbabies, in theaters December 2016.
