Trivia

In the original screenplay, Jack was an airline pilot. Paul Millner had a larger role. The overall film was originally intended for adults as there was much more cursing, a big animosity between Peter and Michael. Also when Peter returns with the formula, originally Michael then went out to Safeway to get the diapers, which Peter forgot. See more »

Goofs

In the same scene when Jacks mother comes to visit Mary, when she walks past the sofa to the right there is a prop of a rifle standing on end right behind the sofa as they walk across the room. When they walk back across the room to the left, the cardboard cut out is in the window. See more »

Quotes

Spock makes a good movie
1 June 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Three men and a baby is a good example of a feel-good comedy/drama. The cast is big named with stars like Steve Guttenburg, Tom Selleck, and Ted Danson as three bachelors living in an apartment (with a ghost) who gets a baby at their doorstep. I think that that's pretty creative. Leonard Nimoy aka Spock directs this and it is good.

Overall the movie is a good feel-good comedy and I enjoyed it. Look for the boy in the window. the ghost. Rating 9 out of 10.
