Movie Review: Look Who’s Talking (1989)

If you aren’t an 80’s fan and haven’t seen this movie, then you are totally missing out! This is one of my all-time favorites when it has to do with babies. If you haven’t seen this movie, do be prepared for some spoilers, but just because I spoiled the movie for you, doesn’t mean you need to not see it!

Here is the trailer:

This movie is about a woman, named Mollie, who becomes pregnant with her ‘boyfriend’, Albert, who is also a married man. She ends up having a son, named Mikey and hires a male babysitter, who is the taxi driver who drives and was there when her son was born.

The movie shows two sides, Mollie, who struggles to be a single mom when her ‘boyfriend’ leaves her to be on her own and the point of view of Mikey. Which was something that made the movie great! Seeing what a baby might be thinking about when they grow and when they become apart of the real world.

Not to mention, the movie shines a light on how hard it really is to be a single mother, especially when the father isn’t in the picture. It paints more than just a picture of a single mother, but also someone, who isn’t the father, can step up and take over the role without even making an effort to do so.

Because this was released in the ’80s, it gave women hope that they don’t need to have a man in their life to raise their child and that they don’t need to go looking for a man because, in time, the right one could be somewhere where you least expected.

The movie also shows milestones that every parent gets to see as their children grow, although the milestones are only from birth till about almost 2 years old, it’s amazing to see how quickly milestones can be. In a movie, it can go from a few seconds, as they grow, but in real life, it goes much quicker.

I also find the relationship that forms between Mikey and James. Even though he isn’t Mikey’s biological child, they have a bond that every father wishes they could have with their children.

In the end, the movie makes a good point to that even if you lost love, another will come around and accept you and your children.

Overall, I love this movie! It is perfect for whatever mood you are in, not to mention, very funny and points out a lot of stuff about having a baby that most of everyone has forgotten about.

Not to mention, there are two more movies that do follow with this.

Movie Review: The Kissing Booth (2018)

The Kissing Booth is a trailer that I saw on Facebook and I wanted to see it so bad! Although the movie didn’t receive great reviews from those very critical critics, I thought it was a super funny teen romance that all of us girls wished we had.

This movie was actually a book, I’m surprised I haven’t read it, but it’s on the list of my must-reads! There are 3 books to this saga, but we are only going to talk about the movie in this review. Not to mention, this book was originally published on Wattpad, the currently place to find any of my works as well!

The movie is about Elle Evans and Lee Flynn, the best of friends, and how they decided to run a kissing booth for their dance team, especially since Elle has never been kissed, but runs a kissing booth. However, Elle and Lee have to try and get Noah Flynn, Lee’s older brother, to do the kissing booth.

The spin on this kissing booth, is that it’s not just one person kissing everyone, they switch it up, having different guys and girls for the booth, however, the kisser is blindfolded.

With that being said, you would think the story is about Lee and Elle getting together as a couple, but you are so wrong! Since they grew up as best friends, they have a list of rules for their friendship. With one of the rules that Noah being off-limits.

Basically, it’s a teen romance that can’t happen, but it does. I don’t want to spoil the entire movie either.

If you are looking for a fun girls night flick or want something completely out of your comfort zone, this is definitely worth a watch! Yes, the romance may be cheesy or unlikely to happen in real life, but it’s a fantasy that all of us have either dreamed about or wanted to try it out.

Not to mention, as if they would have a rich house to get drunk and party in, which is what a lot of critics complained about, or what they didn’t like about the film. I understand they don’t like it, but as if they didn’t do that when they were teens? Not to mention, throwing a party, as a teenager today, would have been shut down as soon as a bunch of cars started to be parked around the house.

This is a movie I can definitely watch over and over again. However, this might not be something your spouse will want to watch with you all the time. I can see this being on a mixed movie playlist for a girl’s night in if any of us moms get the chance to have one.

Overall, most people look at the critic reviews before actually listening to the fans or watching the film itself. There are a lot of movies that critics have trashed on, but yet the fans have a more positive outcome about the movie. To me, I trust watching the movie itself before going ahead and judging it.

If you would like to watch this movie, it is currently streaming on Netflix and they also have a sequel in the works that has yet to have a date release on when it’s coming out.
