Three Men and a Baby - REVIEW

Film of the Day #47/ 300

Based on the hit French comedy, "Trois Hommes et un Couffin" ("Three Men and a Cradle), Three Men and a Baby stars Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson as a trio of confirmed bachelors, who unexpectedly discover the joys of fatherhood. The balance of the film is devoted to milking as much humour as possible out of the situation of three urban young men having to deal with the frustrations and complications of dealing with an infant. However, Mary soon begins to win them over as the care free bachelors trade-in a steady succession of one nights stands in order to become caring Fathers. Directed by Leonard Nimoy, Three Men and a Baby may not be cinema at its most cutting edge or inspiring but, assuming that you can stand an enormous retro-trip this is an amusing eighties comedy classic. They changed her nappies; she changed their lives.
