The 3 men's lives in this story have no real meaning or depth.
They seem to be living the ideal care-free life from a man's point of view. The baby will reveal their emptiness,and fill their lives in a way they never dreamed possible. Hats off to Coline Serreau for this fine film. I saw it when it first came out and it has aged well. Upon viewing it now that I have become a father of six,I have to say it seems better then ever to me ! I now understand it on a very different level,one can easily say it is a critique of our modern western "bourgeois" societies that have become allergic to children, especially babies. And it does so without sacrificing it's excellent humour. Note: This is a french movie,in order to really savor it to the full you must ideally understand french culture, and see it in french. From this perspective this genuinely funny comedy is worth a solid 10.
