Look Who’s Talking

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. Look Who's Voice-Overing would be a far more appropriate moniker, as Willis isn't heard by the film's other characters.

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. Look Who’s Voice-Overing would be a far more appropriate moniker, as Willis isn’t heard by the film’s other characters.

The camera simply homes in on one of the four strikingly dissimilar babies who play the leading role and Willis lets fly with asides to match their ‘cute’ expressions.

Kirstie Alley does the best she can as the child’s mother – an accountant whose married boyfriend (George Segal) gets her pregnant. Convinced he’ll leave his wife for her and the child, she spurns the attention of the sweet, earnest cab driver (John Travolta) who helped her at the hospital when she was going into labor.
