In the family way, harmlessly amusing
11 April 2003 | by (fairview, nj) – See all my reviews

LOOK WHO'S TALKING (1989) **1/2 Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, Oympia Dukakis,George Segal, Abe Vigoda, Bruce Willis (Voice only). Amy Heckerling's widely popular comedy of high concept: talking baby, well really thoughts spoken by baby with smart-ass Willis playing matchmaker to Alley the single mom who gets dumped by creep Segal, to nice guy cabbie Travolta in his comeback role. Some funny moments but the gimmick wears thin but is head and shoulders above its two dreadful sequels!
