Trivia

Amy Heckerling first pitched the movie to Disney. Disney CEO Michael Eisner felt that it was too sexual for them even for their Touchstone Pictures banner. Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros, Orion Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Universal Studios also passed on it too. Ultimately it was TriStar Pictures who liked the script and green lit the film with a $7 million budget. See more »

Goofs

In the cab, on the way to the hospital, Mollie shouts that her water just broke and James looks back apparently seeing a mess, but when she gets to the hospital, her overalls are perfectly dry with no evidence of her water breaking. See more »

Quotes

James: It's weird, isn't it? You spend the first nine months trying to get out and the rest of your life trying to get back in.

Sweet Movie
22 November 1999 | by AdrianeSee all my reviews

Oh who doesn't like this movie? Kirstie Alley is charming, and John Travolta is a babe! Bruce Willis is hilarious as the voice of Mikey. "You must be thing that same thing I am" "Yeah, lunch!" A sweet light comedy that everyone should see. I guarantee that Mikey will cheer you up.
