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 »
At one point, Molly is in the streets with Mikey and we see a Starbucks Coffee in the background. Starbucks did not make it to the east coast until the early-1990s. See more »
Where are the parachutes?
Parachutes? There are no parachutes.
No parachutes? Didn't you ever see 'Sweet Dreams'? 'The Buddy Holly Story'? 'La Bamba'?
There's a big difference. They're, like, rock legends, and we're not.

Life from a baby's point of view. How thoughtful! I think this is one of the most innovative and delightful movies ever made... though I may be a little biased since, though I don't have any of my own, I love babies.
The only problem I had was the second "Molly, I'm gonna burst if I don't kiss you soon..." "Tough!" scene. Unnecessary and catches you off guard.
But overall... this is just darling if you love babies.
I originally got it when I traded another film with my brother when I was younger... not really realizing just how sweet it was until I got to my late teens and started thinking about babysitting and being a mother, etc.
I'm glad I have it in my collection. What else can I say? :o)
