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 »

Smart little comedy that expresses what a young baby is thinking (voiced by Bruce Willis) throughout its running time. Likeable performances from Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, George Segal and Olympia Dukakis add to the sometimes mediocre screenplay and unsteady direction. The clever idea though, which is very original, carries the film and makes it a funny and entertaining experience. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
