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

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 »

Quotes

[Jack, Michael, and Peter are waiting by a pay phone with Mary for the drug dealers to call. They are helping the police set a trap. The phone rings, Peter answers]
Peter: Hello!... Yeah, we got your message!... Uh uh! No good! We do it our way!... 'Cause we've got the stuff! And, if you don't do it our way...
Jack Holden: [whispering as Peter gathers himself] Say it, say it!
Peter: We FLUSH it down the toilet! Now, listen, there's a construction site...

19 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fortunately the three bachelors are played by famous name stars in Tom Sellick (Peter, the architect), Steve Guttenberg (Michael, the artist) and Ted Danson (Jack, the actor). Their combined talents and charisma have a lot to do with this movie's success. This film was nearly perfect, but sadly still not made for everyone. It's an important film, as well as very entertaining. It is very light-hearted. It's fun to see the three guys in all the stereotypical circumstances of diapering and baby tending. I finished this film, thinking, "There are people out there suffering and I can do something to help them out!" Great performances help to enhance this story of friendship.
