"...Travolta seems to be enjoying himself; he's loose, spontaneous..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/13/1989
"...The ideal comeback for Travolta....He's every bit as charming and vulnerable as we've all forgotten he could be....[A] surprisingly smart, sweet-tempered movie..."
A single mother in her mid-30's (Kirstie Alley) sets out to find a proper father for her son. Baby Mikey is determined to make his opinion on the subject known through his actions--he favors an engaging cab driver turned baby sitter (John Travolta). But by the time he learns to talk, it may be too late.
An accountant becomes pregnant by her married boyfriend who then refuses to leave his wife and assume responsibility for the child. Left to her own devices, the expectant mother is befriended by the warm-hearted cab driver who races her to the hospital during labor. He quickly falls in love with both her and her precocious infant who comments on the action (including his own birth) omnisciently in the wise-cracking voice of Bruce Willis. Still pining over her businessman ex-boyfriend, the accountant at first refuses the attentions of the cabbie, until, gradually, she begins to see him as more than just a babysitter.
