The film was heavily influential on the Klasky Csupo animation studio and the animated series Rugrats (1990), developed for the new line of animation on the Nickelodeon network. See more »
In every shot of Mikey in his high chair except the very last one (the dance sequence), the background dishes in the drainer with the towel tossed over the counter can be seen to be exactly the same. See more »

Good scenario isn't it: baby observes the world as an adult would with sarcastic quips and anecdotes. And the movie itself is also quite good. Although it has the neccessary light touch, it's also rather adulty. Films of this calibre wouldn't usually have quite so much innuendo and sex-talk in them. This doesn't take away from the overall enjoyment of the movie, but it certainly is surprising.
There's a good cast to back this up. Kirstie Alley is ideal as the sexy single mother. John Travolta repeats his character in Saturday Night Fever to a certain degree, which isn't a bad thing. Bruce Willis steals the show as the voice of the baby though.
The result is a pleasing and enjoyable little comedy so I recommend "Look Who's Talking". My IMDb rating: 6.7/10.
