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).
Cute is the operative word for the movie, which stars some good actors doing material that is not super.
| Original Score: 1/4
This flabby comedy ... deserves only one thing: to fall on its fat one.
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.
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
Travolta, you should know, has a dance scene. But it's not what you think.
