Overview

Three Men and a Baby is an Americanized remake of the 1985 French comedy hit Three Men and a Cradle. Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg play three upwardly mobile New York bachelors who share an apartment. Their even-keel lifestyle is thrown out of whack when a young woman leaves a baby on their doorstep, suspecting that film director Danson is the father. The balance of the film is devoted to milking as much humor as possible out of the situation of three urbane young men trying to play nursemaid with nary a clue of what they're doing (at one point, a desperate Selleck offers Guttenberg a thousand dollars if Guttenberg will change a diaper). A subplot involving drug dealers is thrown in to sustain audience interest after our trio of heroes become accustomed to a baby around the apartment. "Urban legend" aficionados please note: That cardboard cutout of Ted Danson briefly glimpsed in one scene of Three Men and a Baby is not the ghost of a little boy who died in the bachelors' apartment before filming started.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
One of the many American remakes of French comedies that populated multiplexes in the late eighties, Three Men and a Baby sets up a standard sitcom situation then trades on the star power of its cast to make it work. While the men's inability to immediately grasp the subtleties of parenting makes for easy laughs, it is their interaction with one another that gives the film the energy that helped make it a smash hit. The film has a 1940's feel to it, and it is not difficult to imagine Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, and Danny Kaye doing this material in black and white. There is nothing original in the film, but the actors are comfortable with this material and they sell it like the professionals they are. The movie became one of the most successful home videos in history, partially due to an urban legend about the appearance of a ghost in the film.
