If you've always wanted to know what a baby thinks of the world around him, you finally have your chance. With Bruce Willis supplying the voice of Mikey's thoughts, this is one baby who says exactly what's on his mind. Mollie (Kirstie Alley) is a single working mother who's out to find the perfect father for her child. Her baby, Mikey, prefers James (John Travolta), a cab driver turned babysitter who has what it takes to make them both happy. But Mollie won't even consider James. It's going to take all the tricks a baby can think of to bring them together before it's too late. Amy Heckerling (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) wrote and directed this baby's-eye-view comedy.

This flabby comedy ... deserves only one thing: to fall on its fat one.

Dated '80s talking-baby tale has lots of cursing, sex.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Look Who's Talking is a 1989 comedy in which Kirstie Alley gives birth to a baby who is voiced by Bruce Willis. For those who haven't seen the movie in a few years, there's a surprising amount of adult and iffy humor that make this best for teens and older. The movie begins with talking sperm cells swimming to try to fertilize an egg. Alley's character becomes pregnant from a man who's having an extramarital affair with her; much of the second half of the movie concerns itself with the idea that a woman couldn't possibly raise a child without a man's help. During the birth of the baby, the woman is given Demarol, and the baby is shown acting high on drugs. In one scene, the baby calls his mother's date a "d--k," and in another scene, says "I feel like a retard." Lots of the humor is derived from the baby's defecation and urination habits. One of the babies in the maternity ward is Indian and talks in a stereotypical accent. There are lots of sex jokes and innuendo, and occasional profanity, including "f--k" (used once).
