Director Leonard Nimoy had some arguments and differences on the set with the lead actors. According to Steve Guttenberg, Tom Selleck and Ted Danson were used to being the bosses on their own television shows, but soon learned that the real boss in charge was Nimoy. Guttenberg said, "Leonard was a good director, and being an actor, he knew the problems actors face, although sometimes I think he forgot." See more »
After Peter and Michael left the show early to check on Jack and Mary (after repeatedly not getting any answers by phone), Peter says to Jack, "I let the phone ring for five minutes..." However, the answering machine would have picked up after two or three rings. See more »
"Three Men and a Baby" is one of those movies like "Ghostbusters" that you enjoy in spite of the fact that you realize that they are only made for money and are otherwise empty. I saw this about three times when it was new and laughed like a loon each time. A couple of days ago, I saw a dubbed version on Czech TV. This time, only a few of the jokes made me laugh such as the drug hiding jokes, the scenes of the three roomies being obviously outside of their element with the baby and that masterpiece of a scene where Tom Selleck tells off the pompous Hungarian celloist (I always loved that one). Otherwise, the only other entertainment value is provided by the "goofball with a heart of gold" appeal of the three lead actors and a cute little baby for the more sentimental viewers. One thing which struck me though was just how garishly the 80s the music and the fashions were ! When people think "good 1980s music", they usually think of new wave and some of the better hard rock stuff. The music here, though, is exactly the kind of sugary drivel that is best left forgotten. And the fashions, of course, make everyone look like either a "Miami Vice" fan or an ultra clean cut Young Republican. "Three Men and a Baby" is a genuine artifact in this sense.
