Enjoyable first film in the "talking baby" genre.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

With his sarcastic delivery, Willis has the ideal voice for the part. Alley and Travolta are affable enough, but the story itself is ordinary and merely passes time.

Hollywood movie-making at its most contrived and shallow.

Like a standup comic pouring 'flopsweat', this ill-conceived comedy about an infant whose thoughts are given voice by actor Bruce Willis palpitates with desperation.

Heckerling directs this dippy but delightful film with a light, zany touch and a reasonably low yuck-factor (dribbles notwithstanding).

A stale idea that actually works, largely due to the capable cast

Better than its sequels -- that's not saying much.

It's a gimmick, but it works.

Cute is the operative word for the movie, which stars some good actors doing material that is not super.

A cute movie that heralded the return of Travolta and unfortunately also spawned a franchise that would not die.

Travolta merges into middle age in this surprisingly winning family comedy.

This flabby comedy ... deserves only one thing: to fall on its fat one.

The audience around me found it funnier than I did; for me, Look Who's Talking is a one-joke movie that wears out its welcome rather quickly.

This is a great idea for a sketch, not a feature, and if Heckerling had resisted padding it out, it might have made a brilliant short. A comedy can ride only so far on high concept. It has to deliver the jokes, and this one doesn't.

Travolta, you should know, has a dance scene. But it's not what you think.

This fairly unlikely idea for a movie turns into a warm and lovable comedy, although I still don't think it needed the voiceovers from the baby.
