Flashback Friday: Look Who’s Talking Now

On the surface, Christmas (or any holiday) is about family, food, and being with your loved ones. But, as we all know, this simple message is not always clear.

The final film in the Look Who’s Talking trilogy is Look Who’s Talking Now (1993). Taking place several years after Look Who’s Talking (1989) and Look Who’s Talking Too (1990), the family has grown. But so has their troubles. Mollie (Kirstie Alley) has lost her job due to the recession. James (John Travolta) has achieved his professional dream of becoming a pilot. Their children, Mikey (David Gallagher) and Julie (Tabitha Lupien) are now school aged.

The narrative kicks off with the arrival of James’s new boss, Samantha (Lysette Anthony). Samantha has eyes for James that go beyond the professional realm. Meanwhile, the family reluctantly adopts Rocks (voiced by Danny DeVito) and is forced to temporarily take care of Samantha’s dog Daphne (voiced by Diane Keaton). With Christmas coming, will they be together or will circumstances pull them apart?

I personally think that this movie is adorable. Though it fits neatly in the Christmas movie genre, it is neither too cutesy, schmaltzy, or over the top. There is just enough comedy and the message of being together for this time of year that makes it a pretty good watch in my book.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
