In the kitchen, when Sylvia removes the cake from the pan, it breaks into multiple pieces. She arranges it haphazardly on the plate and begins to ice it while still standing at the kitchen counter. When she brings the plate and icing into the living room the cake has been arranged better and there is no icing on it. See more »

Classic Family Film
18 October 2004 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

Why does this film have such a low rating?. OK i know most sequels never live up to the original but this film was different it was much better than 3 men and a little baby. Better storyline that kept you interested mainly the fact that half of the film is set in South England which gave the film a different angle and made it more interesting. Now on to the actors definitely Ted Danson was the best actor as Jack Holden closely followed by Tom Selleck as Peter Mitchell. I have seen this film since i was 3 years old when it first came out and it remains as a classic comedy alongside Uncle Buck, Planes, Trains and Automobiles etc its classed alongside those kind of films i think and overall it gets a 7/10
