Mollie is a single mum who's on the lookout for a reliable and normal boyfriend. Her son Mikey, (unbeknownst to her) seems to have a better idea of which of the men she dates would make a good father figure! If only she could understand him... Written by

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 »

Raised them? They're 11 and 9. Don't tell me they've moved out and gotten jobs already!

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)
