1989: Look Who's Talking with Corinne Stikeman

What's the best parenting movie ever made? That's right, the critically panned, but comercially explosive LOOK WHO'S TALKING! That is, at least, if you are Kenny, or our guest, writer/producer Corinne Stikeman.

We discuss the wonderfully tender performances from Kirstie Alley and John Travolta, the improbability of a pitch like this making it to production, and Kenny pulls from his real life experiences parenting to explain how this movie connected so deeply with parents.

Get ready for your jaw to drop when Phil reveals the profit this movie made, and remember: This is NOT a talking baby movie.

We talk about what this movie could have been if Spielberg were able to cast his first choices, what we think works about the concept and script, and where we think it went so, horrifically wrong (Hint, it's mostly Dreyfuss).Stay until the end to hear our Spielberg top tens!
