What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Look Who's Talking Too is a sequel to the 1989 talking-baby hit Look Who's Talking. Of course it also features cute talking babies, but the mature situations, strong language, and sexual themes make it best for teens and up. There's lots of sexual innuendo and gender stereotyping. Sexual content includes an animated sequence showing conception and a fetus in the womb that talks in voice-over. The fetus wraps the umbilical cord around its neck, makes a joke about it, and an emergency Caesarian is performed that shows a doctor's bloody, gloved hand several times. Lots of strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," and "d--kface." Lots of potty language, too, like "poo-poo" and "dump." Toddlers talk like adults bragging about sex. Little kids may be scared by the toys that transform into monsters in the dark and by the toilet monster. A toddler picks up a glass pipe in the park and his mom says it's a crack pipe. A fantasy sequence glamorizes smoking and drinking while driving as cool and rebellious. There's a burglary, a man brandishes a gun several times, one punch in the face, and a fire with babies in danger.

What's the story?
In LOOK WHO'S TALKING TOO, Mollie (Kirstie Alley) and James (John Travolta) have been married for about a year when Mollie gets pregnant again despite using birth control. This time it's a girl (Roseanne Barr), and Mickey (Bruce Willis) is more than a little jealous. Added pressure to use the potty and Mom and Dad's frequent fights about money don't help, either. When Mollie's brother moves in, it all becomes too much for James and he walks out. Can Mollie win him back?
Is it any good?
Unfortunately, despite the same director and the same strong cast, this sequel doesn't muster the same silly charm that made Look Who's Talking so popular. The jokes in Look Who's Talking Too at best just haven't aged well and at worst are in bad taste. Mature situations, sexual content, and strong language keep it from being a good family choice. Add to that a plot full of holes, a weak script, and a cast that doesn't seem that enthusiastic either, and there's not much reason to spend an evening watching this movie.
