After a single, career-minded woman is left on her own to give birth to the child of a married man, she finds a new romantic chance in a cab driver. Meanwhile, the point-of-view of the newborn boy is narrated through voice-over.
Mollie is a single mum who's on the lookout for a reliable and normal boyfriend. Her son Mikey, (unbeknownst to her) seems to have a better idea of which of the men she dates would make a good father figure! If only she could understand him... Written by

In the scene where James (John Travolta) is pouring out his soul to Mikey, he talks about anecdotes and advice his grandfather used to tell him. He says that one of his favorites was "If all your buddies jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, does that mean you gotta too?" One of the most famous scenes in another John Travolta film "Saturday Night Fever" is of Tony (John Travolta) and of his friends fake-jumping off the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. See more »
When Molly starts hitting James for taking Mickey out without permission, he falls knocking a box of Cheerios which hangs curiously over the counter and has a plastic glass standing upright untouched. After he has removed the splinter, we see the box gone and it is replaced by the same plastic glass fallen down and it's contents spilled over. See more »

Oh, what a good sensation!
It's like great sex, isn't it?
I personally wouldn't remember.

Life from a baby's point of view. How thoughtful! I think this is one of the most innovative and delightful movies ever made... though I may be a little biased since, though I don't have any of my own, I love babies.
The only problem I had was the second "Molly, I'm gonna burst if I don't kiss you soon..." "Tough!" scene. Unnecessary and catches you off guard.
But overall... this is just darling if you love babies.
I originally got it when I traded another film with my brother when I was younger... not really realizing just how sweet it was until I got to my late teens and started thinking about babysitting and being a mother, etc.
I'm glad I have it in my collection. What else can I say? :o)
