I love Fast Times at Ridgemont High and I like Clueless plenty too, but pretty much every other Amy Heckerling picture has failed to click with me – and her last movie I Could Never Be Your Woman almost broke me. I remember when I was 16 and I shuffled off to see Look Who’s Talking and actually thought that because the Fast Times woman had directed it, things were going to work out a whole lot better than the trailer suggested. So, when I hear today that Look Who’s Talking is getting remade, I can’t manage anything more than a shrug.
Is it even a good idea? Talking babies that don’t actually talk? Or will they talk now, seeing as the CG revolution has turned cinema FX on their head in the 20 years since the first Look?
