My daughter is 11 and loved the movie we all have watched together...These actors have chemistry and we can feel it strongly...we all think the first movie is the best...Travolta's entertaining the kids makes all remember ours fathers and ourselves. Great movie, I just bought the DVD on eBay too bad no Blu-ray...always cry and laugh with this movie. Thanks to everyone that gave his best to it happen!


Look Who's Talking is the definition of Hollywood mediocrity. From the acting to the script, the soundtrack to the visual look of the movie, everything shouts average. Hell, even Kirstie Alley managed to maintain an average weight for the duration. This isn't to say the movie isn't funny because it is, but aside from a few one liners by Mikey (voiced by Bruce Willis) we never really get anything that makes you want to laugh out loud which is a real shame considering the potential of the situations in the movie. If you want a movie that will let you chill out and relax, whilst being instantly forgettable, this is it.Overall rating: 6 out of 10.


Look Whos Talking is a good movie,its not fantastic its not a laugh out loud ninety minutes of comedy gold but its good and its much better than the the sequels Look Whos Talking Too and Look Whos Talking Now and I thought John Travolta did a brilliant performance as James and doing the voice of the baby Mikey as hes talking in his head and thinks that the adults understand him.A woman has an affair with a married man and decides that its wrong and breaks it up although the man doesn't want to end it,she then finds out a few days later at the hospital that he got her pregnant,but she hates him and doesn't want him to see the child when hes born and pretends to people that she got pregnant by freezing sperm.When she gets into a taxi her water breaks and she gets the taxi driver to take her to the hospital(taxi driver named James played by John Travolta),when the baby's born she tries tries to find the perfect dad for her son Mikey (voiced by John Travolta) while Mikey provides wisecracking commentary,when she goes on the dates she gets James to babysit and Mikey starts to think that hes his dad.


I watched this around the time it came out and loved it then and I still love it.The acting isn't always perfect, but it's always entertaining. I was never bored. I certainly wish there was less swearing and that the 'almost love scene' was left out, so that I could sit down and watch this with my kids.John Travolta and Kirsty Ally are both completely lovable in their roles. Although the movie fails to take me through their more rough emotions with them. I don't feel for her when her baby's daddy doesn't follow through with his fatherly responsibilities. And I don't really feel for him over his unfulfilled (at least temporarily) love.I guess that is what makes this film so fun though. You are not brought down so you can just focus on the fun and uplifting parts without your mind dwelling on the trials of the characters.I highly recommend this film to anybody who won't get hung up on the little things (and I think that's most people). So, go rent it. It may be old for a film, but it hasn't lost any of it's sparkle. Enjoy.
