Movie Info

Though its PG-13 rating is well earned, Look Who's Talking has some elements that might appeal to a family audience. Chief among them, of course, is the "talking baby" protagonist. The product of an extramarital affair, infant Mikey (played by several different babies, and given voice by Bruce Willis) is a cynical, sarcastic observer of his new world. Mikey's mother, Kirstie Alley, having been dumped by her married lover George Segal, searches high and low for a new father for her baby. Of

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.

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.

Enjoyable first film in the "talking baby" genre.

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.

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

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

Grating but surprisingly popular

It's a gimmick, but it works.

December 27, 2003
Juicy Cerebellum

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.

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.
