Robin Williams, was considered for the voice of Mikey. But Williams' agent wanted too much money, which was double the film's production budget. However, he would co-star with John Travolta in the Disney movie, Old Dogs (2009). See more »
Mollie's blind date stresses the importance of a Notre Dame football game on TV by saying "it's the playoffs." In 1989, Notre Dame participated in Division I (now the FBS), which had not yet incorporated a playoff system. See more »

Good scenario isn't it: baby observes the world as an adult would with sarcastic quips and anecdotes. And the movie itself is also quite good. Although it has the neccessary light touch, it's also rather adulty. Films of this calibre wouldn't usually have quite so much innuendo and sex-talk in them. This doesn't take away from the overall enjoyment of the movie, but it certainly is surprising.
There's a good cast to back this up. Kirstie Alley is ideal as the sexy single mother. John Travolta repeats his character in Saturday Night Fever to a certain degree, which isn't a bad thing. Bruce Willis steals the show as the voice of the baby though.
The result is a pleasing and enjoyable little comedy so I recommend "Look Who's Talking". My IMDb rating: 6.7/10.
