Remember how Albert's shrink said that Beth would never get better as long as he kept seeing me?
Yeah, a million times.
Well, he's decided to leave her.
Albert's leaving his wife?
No, he's leaving his shrink. And that's really a good thing, because she was really starting to become an obstacle with us.

Life from a baby's point of view. How thoughtful! I think this is one of the most innovative and delightful movies ever made... though I may be a little biased since, though I don't have any of my own, I love babies.
The only problem I had was the second "Molly, I'm gonna burst if I don't kiss you soon..." "Tough!" scene. Unnecessary and catches you off guard.
But overall... this is just darling if you love babies.
I originally got it when I traded another film with my brother when I was younger... not really realizing just how sweet it was until I got to my late teens and started thinking about babysitting and being a mother, etc.
I'm glad I have it in my collection. What else can I say? :o)
