Trivia

The "greatest clutch shot in basketball history" that Peter's guests are watching during the party is from Game 3 of the 1970 NBA Finals. Jerry West of the Los Angeles Lakers sank a 65-foot desperation heave with two seconds left to tie the game, but the New York Knicks won the game in overtime and eventually the series to win the NBA championship. Largely unknown is the fact that, after the Knicks went up by two before West's shot, 'Wilt Chamberlain' never was completely out of bounds after he took the ball to inbound it to West. Chamberlain was frustrated and just casually flipped the ball to West and was heading toward the locker room when West hit the shot. 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 »

Cute comedy
24 February 2001 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

"3 Men and a Baby" is a comedy that's cute and funny. Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Danson star as three bachelors who live together, and who's lives are changed forever when on one particular day a baby infant is left on their doorstep. The three bachelors are now forced unexpectedly to become fathers to the baby. Plenty of wonderful comedy scenes throughout as the three stars go through the frustrations of having to deal with this infant girl in the early stages, then the baby eventually starts to win them over. If only the filmmakers threw out the subplot involving drugs, then this film would've been a great comedy.

*** (out of four)
