After a single, career-minded woman is left on her own to give birth to the child of a married man, she finds a new romantic chance in a cab driver. Meanwhile, the point-of-view of the newborn boy is narrated through voice-over.
Double-crossed, the lovelorn and very pregnant New York City accountant, Mollie, gets into James' cab and rushes to the hospital to give birth, after a failed attempt at love with a sleazy and self-centred businessman. Suddenly, Mollie is a single working mum--and what is even more disheartening--she has to embark on the nearly impossible quest to unearth the ideal father for her outspoken boy, Mikey. Could the perfect father be James, Mikey's favourite babysitter?Written by

Rona, if there wasn't such a thing as love, what kind of guy would you get to be your kid's father?
Someone with a small mouth and good hair. Broad shoulders...
No, no, I'm talking about, what kind of a man would you want to stick around and help raise your child?
There's a man who'd do that?

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
