Baby is a young and partially hearing impaired getaway driver who can make any wild move while in motion with the right track playing. It's a critical talent he needs to survive his indentured servitude to the crime boss, Doc, who values his role in his meticulously planned robberies. However, just when Baby thinks he is finally free and clear to have his own life with his new girlfriend, Deborah, Doc coerces him back for another job. Now saddled with a crew of thugs too violently unstable to keep to Doc's plans, Baby finds himself and everything he cares for in terrible danger. To survive and escape the coming maelstrom, it will take all of Baby's skill, wits and daring, but even on the best track, can he make it when life is forcing him to face the music? Written by

Discounting Basic Instinct (1992), which was produced by Carolco, and District 9 (2009), which was released while the Tri-Star brand was used part-time, this is Tri-Star Pictures' highest-grossing production as a full-time studio since Hook (1991). See more »

[Last Lines, narrating]
Hey Baby, you know it's funny even though I heard it so many times in the court case I still can't get used to the fact that your real name is Miles. It's a cool name though. I can think of a lot of great Miles songs, but we still have to get through all those baby songs first. I can't wait till the day it's just us, music, and the road. See you later baby, all my love. Deborah.

Completely silly waste of time -- for teens and under ONLY, if that
With all the hype over this movie, I had to come in here and try and be one little island of reason amidst the ocean of insanity. For the life of me, I cannot understand how it's getting any praise at all, let alone heaps of it. The premise/plot is colossally stupid, so it's check-your-brain-at-the-door stuff from the get-go. But even within those cartoonish parameters, there is not one interesting story element nor compelling character to be found. The movie is cliché after cliché. It has this one parlor trick, which surely you've heard about, where it often syncopates the (ridiculous) action with the music track. To which I reply, okay, fine. In no way do I see how this somehow elevates the terrible script and two-dimensional characters. At no point did I care about what happened to anyone. I hate to overuse simple descriptors like "dumb" or "pointless," but honestly, I can't use them enough about this movie. If I can save one over-13 person the waste of time, I will feel like a hero. Please save your money!
