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.
