Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[Molly learns to fly]
Mollie: Oh, what a good sensation!
James: It's like great sex, isn't it?
Mollie: I personally wouldn't remember.

Simply adorable
22 February 2000 | by (Atlantic Canada) – See all my reviews

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)
