Read it and Weep

Apr 20, 2016

For our third annual #PODCRAWL, we teamed up with TBTL w/ Luke Burbank and The Flop House Podcast to watch one of the top three talking babies franchises of all time, Look Who's Talking.

Kirstie Alley is pregnant but her boyfriend won't leave his wife. Fortunately, she has slightly creepy cab driver John Travolta to constantly babysit and wait patiently for Alley to fall in love with him. But what makes this classic rom com a bit different is that baby Mikey has a mostly adult inner monologue voiced by Bruce Willis.

But if you think having a vaguely racist Die Hard voice-over of a baby sounds like a delight, you'd be mostly wrong! It's pretty weird. For example, why does the baby have many adult concepts but then sometimes not? How can the other babies hear what Die Hard is thinking? And most importantly, how is this baby so big? Fortunately this is a Superhost episode so we have Ezra to tell us the answers (he has a baby so he knows everything).
