What movie is the song 'Waiting For a Star to Fall' from?

'Waiting for a Star to Fall' in which Movie The song is featured in two movies:

  • ''Look Who's Talking Too''
  • ''Three Men and A Little Lady'' (it plays at the start and during the credits)
Both movies were released in 1990.

The song is written and performed by "Boy Meets Girl." Here is some interesting trivia on "Waiting For A Star To Fall":

Following their meeting at a wedding where the two were hired to perform, Seattle natives George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam formed the pop group Boy Meets Girl. Their eponymous 1985 debut featured the single "Oh Girl," but it was the duo's penning of two hits for Whitney Houston that established them as songwriters. "How Will I Know" topped the pop and R&B charts, while "I Wanna Dance With Somebody [Who Loves Me]" won the Grammy for Song of the Year.

Returning to Boy Meets Girl, Merrill and Rubicam issued Reel Life in 1988. "Waiting for a Star to Fall" reached the top 5 in the US and went #1 in Europe"; "Bring Down the Moon," its follow-up single, also charted. Boy Meets Girl also recorded the 1991 album New Dream, but it was shelved before release. Merrill and Rubicam worked mostly as songwriters throughout the 1990s, scoring hits for the UK dance-pop groups OTT and Girlthing.

Then in 2003 they revived Boy Meets Girl with the self-released Wonderground. A quiet, charming album, it dealt with their past as soft rock hitmakers, the dissolution of their marriage, and the state of life in the present. In 2005 the duo released fully remastered versions of Boy Meets Girl's recordings, including the never-released 1991 album New Dream.
