User Reviews

Amusing, funny and ripely entertaining comedy.
18 May 2003 | by SilverzeroSee all my reviews

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.
