Look Who's Talking
Though its PG-13 rating is well earned, Look Who's Talking has some elements that might appeal to a family audience. Chief among them, of course, is the "talking baby" protagonist. The product of an extramarital affair, infant Mikey (played by several different babies, and given voice by Bruce Willis) is a cynical, sarcastic observer of his new world. Mikey's mother, Kirstie Alley, having been dumped by her married lover George Segal, searches high and low for a new father for her baby. Of course, the perfect daddy is right under her nose all the time: cab driver John… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like a standup comic pouring 'flopsweat', this ill-conceived comedy about an infant whose thoughts are given voice by actor Bruce Willis palpitates with desperation."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"This flabby comedy ... deserves only one thing: to fall on its fat one."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Enjoyable first film in the "talking baby" genre."
‑ Kelly Kessler, Common Sense Media
"A stale idea that actually works, largely due to the capable cast"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Grating but surprisingly popular"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Heckerling directs this dippy but delightful film with a light, zany touch and a reasonably low yuck-factor (dribbles notwithstanding)."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"This is a great idea for a sketch, not a feature, and if Heckerling had resisted padding it out, it might have made a brilliant short. A comedy can ride only so far on high concept. It has to deliver the jokes, and this one doesn't."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"With his sarcastic delivery, Willis has the ideal voice for the part. Alley and Travolta are affable enough, but the story itself is ordinary and merely passes time."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"surprisingly funny"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"It's a gimmick, but it works."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Cute is the operative word for the movie, which stars some good actors doing material that is not super."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"This fairly unlikely idea for a movie turns into a warm and lovable comedy, although I still don't think it needed the voiceovers from the baby."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Hollywood movie-making at its most contrived and shallow."
‑ , Film4
"Better than its sequels -- that's not saying much."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A cute movie that heralded the return of Travolta and unfortunately also spawned a franchise that would not die."
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
