Trivia

In 2013, Tom Selleck said in a interview, that he would agree to return as Peter Mitchell, if there would be an 2nd sequel and that there may be some truth that the 3rd film would be entitled "3 Men and a Bride" and he had talked to Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg about it and they would love to get back together.

Brilliant!
3 May 2002 | by (Dhahran, Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

"Three Men & A Little Lady" puts you in the right mood. It becomes a sort of "addiction" once you've seen it. It portrays the typical American lifestyle, with a touch of English humor. An unusual plot makes it hard for you to get bored. The film's great share of actors captivate the viewer, and the lovely soundtrack adds delight to the ears. And I must say I haven't seen Fiona Shaw any funnier :)
