Trivia

When Jack's mother comes to visit Mary, you can see in the background what appears to be a little boy standing in a doorway. There is a rumor that this is the ghost of a little boy who died in the apartment in which the film was shot. This rumour is false, as the interiors were all shot on a sound stage in a movie studio. The "ghost" is actually a cardboard cut-out of Jack wearing a tuxedo. This prop appears later in the film, when Mary's mother comes to collect her. See more »

When Jack's mother comes to visit Mary, you can see in the background what appears to be a little boy standing in front of a window. There is a rumor that this is the ghost of a little boy who died in the apartment in which the film was shot. This rumor is false, as the interiors were all shot on a sound stage in a movie studio. The "ghost" is actually a cardboard cut-out of Jack wearing a tuxedo. This prop appears later in the film, when Mary's mother comes to collect her. Some argue that "it's smaller" or "it's dressed differently", but close examination reveals that it really is the cardboard prop. See more »

Yes, all men are incapable of handling one small child.
24 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Yes, if we are to believe this movie men who do not have a female present have absolutely no idea how to raise a baby are do anything. Not only is this child left in the care of one guy, but three all of which have no clue how to raise a baby and are completely lost, so all three roommates were only children are had no younger siblings to take care of. If this is the case then you can easily title this movie Three women and a baby as they would be just as lost in that scenario as a guy would be, but for some reason people think women just magically know what to do and men are idiots when it comes to children. The three idiots in question here are Tom Selleck and Ted Danson, known mainly for television work and Steve Guttenberg known mainly for being really lucky to have a Hollywood career. This film is also known for starring a cardboard cutout of a boy who was supposedly a ghost of some kid who blew his brains out by accident in the apartment where this film was shot even though all interior shots of the place were on a set. One has to wonder how much of this movie's success came from the story and how much came from idiots who wanted to see this movie cause they thought there was a ghost in it. In the end, this film is like a long list of crappy films that have babies and idiots raising them and for me it was not very good. I like Ted Danson, but he is basically doing his Sam Malone here, in fact in every movie he was in during this era he was usually in Sam Malone character. However, he is the best thing in the movie and has the funniest moments while Selleck and Guttenberg play lame clueless idiots.
