Look Who's Talking Too
Look Who's Talking Too is a 1990 romantic comedy sequel film to the 1989 film Look Who's Talking. It was later followed by Look Who's Talking NOW!, which received worse reviews than Too.
Shortly after getting married, Molly gets pregnant again and she gives birth to Mikey's younger sister Julie.
Why It Sucks
- Almost all the charm from the first movie is gone, being almost completely unfunny.
- The plot is a rehash of the first film. The only difference is that Mikey gets a baby sister now and tries to become friends.
- There's a huge continuity error, where at the end credits of the first movie showed Julie got born and having a different voice, in here however is ignored Julie just get's born.
- Gilbert Gottfried's performance is extremely poor.
- The portrayal of Joey (The Baby gym instructor for Mikey and Julie) is extremely annoying and creepy.
- The scene where Mikey finally learns how to poop in the toilet is extremely lame.
- Roseanne Barr was a poor choice to voice Julie.
- Most of the effects are poor.
- Mel Brooks feels wasted on this movie, as he only voices the toilet in Mikey's Dream and never comes back.
- There are a couple of rather racist jokes in the movie like in one scene revolving James getting on par with other girls.
- Mikey is unlikable at the beginning.
- The nightmare scenes are too disturbing and come off as unfitting.
- Unfunny jokes.
- Too many cliches.
- Somewhat bad grasp of the first film as it looks like the babies are talking now.
- Pointless scenes that go on for too long.
- The babysitter for Mikey and Julie is extremely unlikable because he leaves the house to catch the thief who stole something.
- Amy Heckerling didn't want to direct this sequel, but she was forced by Tristar and she didn't direct the third movie: Look Who's Talking Now!, which is even worse than this one.
- Good acting from the likes of John Travolta and Kirstee Alley and voice acting from Bruce Willis.
- Good soundtrack including the song Do You Wanna Dance? and Rebel Yell by Billy Idol.
- At least Mikey and Julie became friends at the end.
- The ending was heartwarming and wasn't as bad as Look Who's Talking Now.
While the first film received generally positive reviews from critics and audiences, Look Who's Talking Too received primarily negative reviews from critics and audiences alike. The film currently holds a 13% on Rotten Tomatoes, but does not hold a critic consensus. Chris Hicks of Deseret News (Salt Lake City) described the film as "a one-joke movie that too quickly wore out its welcome."
The film opened up at second place on its opening weekend grossing $8,100,640 domestically and grossed $47,789,074 and was a moderate box office success.
Awards and nominations
Look Who's Talking Too was nominated for two Golden Raspberry Awards including Worst Supporting Actor for Gilbert Gottfried (as well as for The Adventures of Ford Fairlane and Problem Child) and Worst Supporting Actress for Roseanne Barr, and a Stinkers Bad Movie Award for Worst Picture.
Richard Pryor was originally going to voice Mikey's best friend but due to the inappropiate dialogue he gave at the beginning of the tristar pictures logo, he was replaced by Damon Wayans.
