In the scene where James (John Travolta) is pouring out his soul to Mikey, he talks about anecdotes and advice his grandfather used to tell him. He says that one of his favorites was "If all your buddies jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, does that mean you gotta too?" One of the most famous scenes in another John Travolta film, Saturday Night Fever (1977), is of Tony (John Travolta) and of his friends fake-jumping off the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. See more »

He has my eyes.
I know he does. You don't know how confusing it is when someone you love so much looks like someone you hate.

This film has always been a family favourite in our household, and being one when it was first released, I ended up growing up on this film, and I can safely say, 16 years later, I still love it.
I don't know anyone who can say that the children that played Mikey were not adorable, because they were seriously the cutest kids ever. I think the script was very well written, and even though I don't like him, Bruce Willis does really bring the character of Mikey to life.
John Travolta and Kirstie Alley and both outstanding actors, and this movie is no exception. I laugh, I cry, and I watch it over and over again. It is brilliant. The sequels are getting as much a cult watching with me as this original did, too.
