Western Civilization Edges Closer To Nadir: Those E*Trade Babies Getting Their Own Movie

I saw this this article from the AV Club a few weeks ago.  I was hoping against hope that it would be revealed as a joke, but apparently it is all too real: Fox is making a movie based on E*Trade’s talking baby commercials.  Presumably, the smuggest baby on earth will be the protagonist:

Good god, man.  Who would watch this?  Is there not enough baby-related entertainment out there?  And how could this possibly work as a movie?  If there’s one thing the Geico Cavemen taught us, it’s that 30 second commercials make great fodder for television shows.  So why not expand that formula to a full hour and a half movie.  It’s the next logical step.
