Quotes:
Pledge:I still don't understand how you're graduating college and yet you can't remember to put the diaper on the baby before you put him in the crib.
Richie Sambora:Hey you know what Pledge, enough. You don't understand the pressure of having the actually graduate college. When my aunt Debbie graduated college she opened up an orphanage; an orphanage for midgets. It went really well until they started getting their hands on candy. A couple of years later we never heard from aunt Debbie again.

Excellent story with unexpected Outcome, 14 February 2011
Author: Doppenheimer from United States

Light and fun story with a twist takes a story line that is expected and transforms it into an enjoyable well done film appropriate for all. Well thought out, excellent acting and a strong cast makes this all work. Technically done very well with excellent professional scene development and editing. I would recommend this film to all. I expected a repeat of three men and a baby and was surprised to have a well developed story creatively executed. Bravo to the team that put this on and to the story developers. Loved to see Frau as principal. Editing was sharp and smart! I would love to see a follow on ! I generally think these plots head into trouble that leaves an uncomfortable childish feeling. This film masterfully avoided the usual pitfalls and created both the mystery of who's baby was it but of the deception of the other frat house. it is in this process that the film shows creativity and a genuine plot that stands on it's own. Editing of shots is tight and smart without gaps or scenes that detour the story. All in all very professional job and would recommend this to others.
