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 »

James brings Mikey to see his new sister: Mollie: "Hi honey." James: "Mikey, this is your sister Julie." Mollie: "Hi Julie." Mikey: "Hi Julie." Julie (voice of Joan Rivers): "Don't start with me kid. I've had a day you wouldn't believe. Can we talk?" See more »
Mollie's line "Now it's shit!" when she slams Mikey's diaper onto a desk has been dubbed to "Now it's junk!" for some TV versions. See more »
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.
