Two scenes are adages to Kirstie Alley's previous films. The first one is during her labor scene where she says she'll go to summer school to makeup for dropping out of Lamaze classes. She was in the movie Summer School (1987) with Mark Harmon. The other is where she's talking about Dr. Spock's book. She played in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), with Leonard Nimoy as Captain Spock. See more »
Mollie's blind date stresses the importance of a Notre Dame football game on TV by saying "it's the playoffs." In 1989, Notre Dame participated in Division I (now the FBS), which had not yet incorporated a playoff system. See more »

Sure there may be some predictabilities in the story and one or two rushed scenes, but Look Who's Talking is a very charming and funny film and significantly better than its sequels. It looks very nice, has a good soundtrack and has some likable characters too. The script also has a lot of funny and somewhat quotable parts too.
The direction is fine, as is the acting. Bruce Willis is perfect as the voice of Mikey, while John Travolta is equally wonderful with a great smile. And George Seagal comes very close to stealing the show as his character goes through a selfish phase.
Overall, charming and funny. Nothing outstanding, but it was great to watch and I enjoyed it very much. 8/10 Bethany Cox
