"LOOK WHO'S TALKING actually did very well when it came out. I think these amazon people take things too seriously or don't have kids, or have such stressful lives they can't enjoy any kind of humor these movies have. I even enjoyed it when it came out and i was still in elementary school. My mom enjoyed it, and she loved babies and everything that had to do with babies and kids. Parents would enjoy this movie, not all but most. I'm not even one of those "kid lovers" I like kids, but not obsessed or anything like many kid lovers are. But LOOK WHO'S TALKING is a simple comedy with many funny parts like when kirstie alley's voice turned into a devil voice as she went into labor, because of the pain. To me, and my mom that part was hilarious and many women could relate to that because giving birth is no picnic, especially when it's your first baby. I've never given birth, but i've heard the stories. Anyways, i also read many amazon people's reviews about how horrible look who's talking too was, i'm thinkin' what is wrong with people nowadays? That was a cute movie too, the baby girl was as cute as a button, and the acting wasn't bad. I dont understand that. And at the end when mikey took his baby sisters's hand and they walked, and you could see her wobbling, and that cute baby walk which is so cute words can't describe, and the song i got you babe added to the moment. What's not to love, that was an adorable ending all i could say was AWWWWWW!!! people need to lighten up, especially if you wanna be good parents. Try to enjoy life, and not take things so seriously. These movies were basically about that. All those little funny and heartwarming moments when your kid is born and starts to grow and learn. But LOOK WHO'S TALKING NOW i must agree with the others because it was horrible. It doesn't make sense frankly, the first two films were about talking babies, why go to dogs? I like dogs and everything buy WHY? It's almost embarassing to watch. Kind of absurd and yes the acting was horrific, and cheeesy script, and everything in the film was flat out stupid. What next talking furniture and appliances lol. But the first two are still great films, and john travolta is one of my favorite actors, and elias koteas who was in number two was funny, like he was in some kind of wonderful."
A Film That Speaks To You?

""Look Who's Talking" is probably my favorite film with Kirstie Alley, my favorite film with John Travolta (though "Grease" comes close) and my favorite film with Bruce Willis (though I'm not exactly a fan of his). It's funny, it's romantic, it's got some innovative special effects, a couple of car chases, and John Travolta even gets to fly a plane (which he must have really enjoyed at the time!).
Kirstie Alley plays Mollie, an accountant who has an office affair with one of her clients (George Segal), and ends up getting pregnant. It wasn't planned, and she's a little ashamed of the source, but Mollie soon warms to the idea of having a baby. After a traumatic day late in the preganacy, Mollie goes into labor in the middle of the bustling streets of New York, and takes a cab driven by the easy going James (John Travolta). Though it's not really what he wants to do (he wants to be a pilot) he's very good at driving a cab, and gets Mollie there very quickly. She has the baby, Mikey, and he's something of a thinker (voice/thoughts spoken by Bruce Willis), wondering to himself what this strange world around him is, and who these strange people around him are. He starts to grow up as time goes on, and Mollie decides to look for a father. She made a mistake, and she owes it to Mikey to find him a Dad. She dates here, she dates there, but could the right Dad be staring her in the face this whole time?
Everyone plays their part well, and the plot flows really nicely, bit of action, bit of a thoughtful moment, bit of a laugh. It's a romatic comedy of sorts, and it's a funny look at early motherhood, it's interesting seeing both happening at the same time. It's one of those films I can watch again and again, and have done over the years. The soundtrack is great too, a mixture of some older pop hits and contemporary 1980s tunes (including "Dumb Things" by Australian musician Paul Kelly during the taxi labor scene, a song I really like).
Overall, it's a sweet and funny little film, a definitely worth a look for fans of anyone in it. Recommended."
Two thumbs up indeed!

"THIS movie is a classic! Mollie (Kirstie Alley) accidentally becomes pregnant by the wrong man. Seeing that a relationship with the real father just won't work out, she goes on a search to find a suitable father for her new son, Mikey. While she's going out searching for the right one, her babysitter, James (John Travolta), has the time of his life watching over Mikey. Could James possibly be more than a babysitter, or is there a better man?That's one of the best things about "Look Who's Talking". Kirstie Alley and John Travolta have great chemistry together, and they, along with the baby, make this movie a classic that I'll never forget. The movie takes turns following Mollie around as she meets a bunch of Mr. Wrongs while she tries to find Mr. Right, and Mikey, who has Bruce Willis telling us all what Mikey's thinking throughout the movie."Look Who's Talking" has several parts that you'll probably remember for the rest of your life once you see them, such as the opening sequence that shows hundreds of creatures inside the body talking to each other as they race for the endzone, and my favorite, the part where the song "Walking on Sunshine" plays as James shows Mikey how to dance. That brings me to another point. "Look Who's Talking" has a GREAT soundtrack. From the upbeat "Walking on Sunshine", to the overly catchy "Let My Love Open the Door", you might find yourself jamming along to some of the tunes while both hemispheres of your brain work together to form your overall opinion of the movie itself.If you ask me, I say that "Look Who's Talking" is one of the best movies of the late 80's, and I'd even go so far as saying it's one of the best in its genre. It's funny, it has good drama and acting, and it's entertaining from start to finish. What more can you ask for? Get it now!"
John Travolta is great!

"This movie is hilarious! With the voice of Bruce Willis as the thoughts of a baby boy, this movie is about a cab driver, who happens to meet a lady without a husband. The lady is trying to find a husband, but Mickey(the baby) prefers James(the cab driver). It is going to take all a baby can do to get the 2 together before it's too late! I would recommend everybody to see it."

"Mollie, a New York City accountant, becomes pregnant, thanks to her boyfriend, Albert. They aren't married, so Mollie claims it was artificial insemination. One day, Mollie finds Albert cheating on her so it was over between them. But then, her water broke and she had to be rushed to the hospital. Who should happen along but cab driver James Ubriacco. The midtown traffic was a disaster but James drove as fast as possible. Mollie's baby was soon born. He was named Mikey. He began to comment in his mind about everything he saw. James dropped in on Mollie one afternoon to return her purse which she had left in the cab. James even took Mikey out while Mollie took a nap. They went to go visit James' grandfather in a rest home and to the air field because aside from being a cab driver, James was a pilot. Mollie expressed her distaste of James unexpectedly taking Mikey out by hitting him; Mollie was looking for a suitable father figure for Mikey and James looked like a sure winner, but she won't even consider James. She dates several other guys while James babysits Mikey. He teaches him to dance and we all know John "Saturday Night Fever" Travolta is a heck of a dancer. But as luck would have it, Mollie and James begin to get close. Albert comes by one day and meets James, who interrogates Albert on what Mikey's favorite cereal was, how many diapers he goes through a day, favorite rock star, standard stuff a father should know. Albert also proved dull when Mollie and Mikey go to visit him. So that was it for him. James takes Mollie flying one afternoon. They go to visit James' grandfather and the events of the day are as follows: Mikey experiences what driving a car is like and Mollie and James finally fall in love; It's a pretty good movie. John Travolta and Kirstie Alley are good. Olympia Dukakis, Abe Vigoda and George Segal are here too! That is Bruce Willis doing the voice of Mikey! The original cast would return to do Look Who's Talking Too! Then they did Look Who's Talking Now where Mikey has grown up to the stage where he can talk on his own but it's the dogs that talk in that one. So in conclusion, I recommend all three of these films. You're looking for a good comedy or like any of the above actors, this one's for you! "
