A kids' film for the grown-ups!
on October 28, 2004
What can I say? Possibly my all-time favourite film, it comprises childish playfulness with mischeivous adult humour whilst reinforcing core values of love, loyalty, family and best of all, Christmas! Not a film for stuffy old scrooges, but if you can get past the talking dogs (and at one point talking sperm as well!) you will see it as one of the most beautiful and heart-warming films ever made. A part of the Look Who's Talking series, but 's really no need to watch the other two films first, Look Who's Talking Now stands alone as a masterpiece.
James Ubriacco (John Travolta) is a happy-go-lucky chap who gets through life mucking about and making people laugh. Not the usual example of one of life's high-flyers, James gets offered his dream job as a pilot but only because the rich blonde president of the company, Samantha LeBon, fancies him! But she's got her work cut out trying to seduce him, as James is already married to the beautiful Molly (Kirstie Alley) who he adores, and although she gets a little frustrated with his joking around, the two are very much in love, living happily with their two endearing children, Mikey and Julie. On hearing how desperate Mikey is for a dog, Samantha gives James her French poodle, Daphne (a bitch in every sense of the word) just as James has bought Mikey a mongrel dog, Rocks, from the rescue home. This annoys Molly who didn't want a dog in the first place, and she is lumbered with two dogs while scheming Samantha is flying James all over the world and never letting him home. But as Samantha's plans become more devious and James is forced to spend Christmas away from home, will temptation overcome him or will he make it home for Christmas? Or will Christmas make it's way to Daddy...? With two intelligent dogs that secretly talk to thrown into the equation, anything's possible!
The story between the dogs is just as captivating as the story between the people, the humour is of a dry, intelligent nature, the children and dogs are very cute and the chemistry between Travolta and Alley is unsurpassable! A true gem of a film, Look Who's Talking Now will make Christmas complete, whether you're young or old this film is bound to crack a smile! :-)
