Look Who's Talking
12 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Look Who's Talking was released when I was a young boy and they could play it all day and I'd never get tired of it.

What I liked most of all: Showing how hard it is as a single parent in today's challenging world and the quest for family (I read a review from a biblical perspective and it was kind of harsh although it was balanced out very well) It also showed the fact that people cheat and many times the women in the relationship get screwed in more ways than one. I love the opening scene when they show the sperm fertilizing the eggs (if you are a parent and can't talk to your kids about where babies come from, play this scene. It's educational and entertaining) I also liked the fact that they showed Grandpa Ubriacco and James trying to find him a decent home. This film was well written and this is one of the best films that never gets old, dull or stupid. Anyone who thinks so doesn't have half a brain.

It shows how some Fathers can be (biological) and never be there and how some men are selfish while others would be. I LOVED the scenes where she's dating all those men and showing us how they are My ultimate favorite scene is the one where she's on the clock and her biological clock is ticking. This scene I liked because it put such a hilarious spin on something for men, that wouldn't be seen as much of a problem. I also loved Olympia Dukakkis in this movie also.

Everything was well written and well thought out and Amy Heckerling did a great job of directing, I'm not sure if she wrote. Another good one of hers is Johnny Dangerously.

I absolutely loved Bruce Willis's voice of Mikey. He was the perfect voice for him.

This film rocks! It's better than a lot of these crappy remakes Hollywood is responsible for, and still funny though it's almost as old as me
