Sequels are often inferior to their originals, but even the worst sequels should be somewhat better than this piece of trash. The original Look Who’s Talking featured a silly concept that shouldn’t have been taken any further, but its box office success encouraged producers to give it one more go (that sadly wouldn’t be the last). This time, little Mikey (voiced by Bruce Willis as in the original) finds his lifestyle cramped when his parents (Kirstie Alley, John Travolta) have a little girl (voiced by Roseanne Barr). While the adults fetter away in blissful ignorance, the two siblings engage in the worst kind of rivalry that only they and their voice over dialogue are aware of. The comedy is as unsophisticated as it gets and the stars look like they’re rushing to pick up their pay and get out of there. Even the toilet talks in this one.
