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.
A covert counter-terrorist unit called Black Cell led by Gabriel Shear wants the money to help finance their war against international terrorism, but it's all locked away. Gabriel brings in convicted hacker Stanley Jobson to help him.
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
Amy Heckerling was inspired to write the film after her husband and 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. See more »
During the very last scene James and Mikey go to a hospital to see Molly. While walking into her hospital room you can see it's obviously a set/sound stage when you look up at the top, in the corner(s), you will see it for a few good seconds. See more »
Look at all those daddies down there. They're making goofball faces and taking pictures of their babies.

. Well, you won't find your father here. I really messed things up for you. I don't want you to be upset, because I'm going to go out there and find you a daddy, and this time I'm going to be smart about it.

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.
