A film that never gets old

This film has always been a family favourite in our household, and being one when it was first released, I ended up growing up on this film, and I can safely say, 16 years later, I still love it.

I don't know anyone who can say that the children that played Mikey were not adorable, because they were seriously the cutest kids ever. I think the script was very well written, and even though I don't like him, Bruce Willis does really bring the character of Mikey to life.

John Travolta and Kirstie Alley and both outstanding actors, and this movie is no exception. I laugh, I cry, and I watch it over and over again. It is brilliant. The sequels are getting as much a cult watching with me as this original did, too.
