Geena Davis was considered for the role of Mollie. But Davis turned it down, because she couldn't handle shooting a movie involving a birth sequence, especially with her birth sequence in The Fly (1986). See more »

James brings Mikey to see his new sister: Mollie: "Hi honey." James: "Mikey, this is your sister Julie." Mollie: "Hi Julie." Mikey: "Hi Julie." Julie (voice of Joan Rivers): "Don't start with me kid. I've had a day you wouldn't believe. Can we talk?" See more »
Smart little comedy that expresses what a young baby is thinking (voiced by Bruce Willis) throughout its running time. Likeable performances from Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, George Segal and Olympia Dukakis add to the sometimes mediocre screenplay and unsteady direction. The clever idea though, which is very original, carries the film and makes it a funny and entertaining experience. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
