Great follow up to Great original...

Author: kissshot85 from Poole, England
13 November 2003

I don't honestly understand why this film was panned so severely! It may not be a masterpiece as such but it certainly was worth the time of day.

And for the people that are getting so serious about the England v. America thing: I'm English too and happen to find the stereotypes displayed in this film hilarious. It isn't meant as a direct offence, but merely light hearted fun.

Also the "3 men" are fantastic again in their roles. Nancy Travis does a great job and has more chance in this film to show what she's got! Christopher Cazenove does a great job of being completely unlikeable and Fiona Shaw is AMAZING!

A great film and to anyone who hasen't watched it already - please do! You won't regret it.

Outstanding Sequel Far Better Than the Original

Author: mwmtampa from tampa, florida
11 May 2003

After being only mildly entertained by the first movie, I was absolutely awestruck by this sequel. There are many hilarious scenes, a love story triangle, outstanding scenery of the English countryside, and outstanding acting by the big "3 Men". I would have to rate this one of my Top Ten movies of all time.

This movie had no gaps or letdowns, and I could/can not stop watching it. I've easily seen it a dozen times or more, and just caught it again last week on Showtime.

Let me cite some of the extraordinary scenes in this flick. The Rap song by the Big 3 (amazing!), the Big 3's kitchen scene regarding the discussion of possible suitors for Sylvia, the bachelor's swinging NYC party scene (Selleck's blonde was a major fox!) Fiona Shaw's pursuit of Tom Selleck in the Pileforth Academy, and the ending's madcap frenzy!

What a movie!

Classic Family Film

Author: Andyeightyseven from manchester, england
18 October 2004

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

"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 :)

Not bad at all

Author: Steven Bailey ( from Jacksonville Beach, Florida
14 August 1999

I don't know why this one was so trashed by the critics. It's not a masterpiece but hardly as bad as indicated by the drubbing it got. It has what I thought what the best movie scene of its year, where Tom Selleck is talking to the little girl about his departure. He talks to her so intelligently, just the way a smart person would talk to a smart child. After that, I was willing to forgive an awful lot (and admittedly, there's an awful lot to forgive

Even better than the 1st one

Author: kristenj from Wisconsin, USA

It's even better than the first one. 3 Men and A Little Lady has been my favorite movie all throughout my childhood and it still is. Kids will for sure enjoy it and adults too, with humor that both parent and child can appreciate. Grab your family and sit down if you haven't seen this one. All I have to say is, ignore the critics, and to just 'try it, you'll like it.':)

Very cute and nice sequel

Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom
3 October 2010

I really liked Three Men and a Baby and I really liked this film. To be honest, while there are those who will think it is better and those it is inferior, I actually put these two films equally. It could have been a tad shorter though, and there are one or two predictable parts, then again the first one did too. What I did like about Three Men and a Little Lady was its cuteness and charm. This is not the best movie I have ever seen, but it never tried to be, neither did it attempt to be better than the first. It was just an enjoyable movie, with one or two minor problems along the way. The scenery and cinematography was actually pretty lovely, and I liked the soundtrack too. The script was decent, the pacing was snappy, the story while predictable was entertaining and there were some funny sight gags and situations. The direction was neat, and the acting was fine. Robin Weisman is quite appealing as Mary, and Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson were great together and individually. Also seeing Shiela Hancock is always a plus. Overall, cute and entertaining. 8/10 Bethany Cox

This version was not only cute but nice

Author: kill-the-boxtrolls from United States
26 December 2009

I haven't seen all of the first one but I thought the second one was great. It's filled with charm, innocence, drama, comedy, and romance and I thought it was a pretty nice mixture of them. 3 men and a little lady is about a little girl, Mary who is all grown up now and is still babysitted by three men. Once she discovers about going to England, it starts making her a little moved and isolated as well as her three most crucial companions but soon recalls her supernatural-ness to see her friends with closed eyes. I know that the first film seems a little like Baby Boom but both this and that were good films. I thought this one was cute and wasn't bad at all. Three men and a little lady is an emotionally uplifting movie that will raise your moral and spirited levels.

Love Love Love Love Love This Film

Author: trix_n_min from Australia

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This movie would have to be one of my all-time favourites. I watched it religiously as a child, and it had become a security blanket for me all the way through to adulthood. Whenever I am feeling down or out of place, this film always makes me feel good. The three men are all fantastic in their own way, and little Mary is just gorgeous. It has humour, romance and drama and it is just a really easy movie to watch. No matter how many times I see it, I still laugh at Ms Lomax and get teary at the happy ending. I also love the first film but this sequel far surpasses it. Highly recommended for people of all ages who just want to feel good. Oh, and I love the music in it.

Not bad ta ll, if anything one of my favorites

Author: ylopez4-1 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I always loved Tom Selleck, I remember since I was little I used to watch Magnum PI, so anything he is one, I give it a shot. I thought the movie was heartwarming, the little girl Mary is great, very preceptive, precocious (everything a child is,) inquisitive, curious, lovable. I love the whole idea of Peter (being secretly in love with Sylvia) and sylvia vice-versa, the tension in the room and so forth. I love Ted danson Character, is the irresponsible biological father that adores Mary. Michael (steve guttenberg) he is okay, but definitely the funny ones are Tom selleck (Peter) and Ted Danson (Jack) they are hilarious especially the seen when Jack figured out that Peter was in love with Sylvia, that was priceless!!!!!!!!!!! I love the movie and I never get bored of watching it, the ending is amazing....
