User Reviews

 
3 Men & A Baby filmed as it should have been!
18 October 2000 | by ChrisGarritySee all my reviews

A baby is left on the doorstep by its mother, three sceptical men grow to love the infant, but which is the real father?

A gentle touching comedy, quieter than the American version. Worth a viewing, although because of the language barrier if for no other reason, this film will be deprived a truly mass audience.
