Our Score
A triumph of high concept from Hollywood, this is the smash-hit comedy that brought John Travolta back from the wilderness into the public eye and spawned two increasingly silly sequels. Kirstie Alley plays the single mother on the lookout for the perfect husband, even though we know that lowly taxi driver Travolta is the safe bet from the outset. Bruce Willis, the wisecracking voice of baby Mikey, has the best lines, although Travolta and Alley are an amiable pairing, and there's nice support from Olympia Dukakis and George Segal.


Pregnant Mollie is dumped by her boyfriend, and sets out after the baby's birth to find a surrogate father for her infant son Mikey, who comments on proceedings through a wisecracking inner monologue. Mikey is confident the cab driver who helped deliver him is the perfect man for the job - but his mother is less than convinced. Comedy, with John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and the voice of Bruce Willis.
