Of all the roles he's played, John Travolta said the character he plays in this film is the most like his real personality.
John Travolta said this was the only time, after watching a premiere of his, that he knew he was going to be in a major hit.
Amy Heckerling was inspired to write the film after her husband when writer Neal Israel started playfully talking in a different voice to pretend what their new baby would say. Her husband also has a cameo as Kirstie Alley's character's boss.
According to director Amy Heckerling, Bruce Willis improvised X-rated voice-over takes.
James mentions living in Englewood. John Travolta was born in Englewood, New Jersey.
Mollie's two blind dates that she imagines as Mikey's father are listed in the credits as "Mr. Impatient" and "Mr. Anal".
John Travolta's first major acting role in 5 years.
Amy Heckerling's father Louis Heckerling plays Mollie's father. Like his character in the film, he was also an accountant.
The name of John Travolta's character is James Ubriacco. The surname, Ubriacco is an Italian word that means "drunk" (someone that has consumed too much alcohol).
The third John Travolta film that features the song 'Staying Alive' by The Bee Gees.
In the scene where James (John Travolta) is pouring out his soul to Mikey, he talks about anecdotes and advice his grandfather used to tell him. He says that one of his favorites was "If all your buddies jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, does that mean you gotta too?" One of the most famous scenes in another John Travolta film "Saturday Night Fever" is of Tony (John Travolta) and of his friends fake-jumping off the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.
The film was heavily influential on the Klasky Csupo animation studio and the animated series "Rugrats" developed for the new line of animation on the network Nickelodeon three years later in 1992.
