Trivia

The "greatest clutch shot in basketball history" that Peter's guests are watching during the party is from Game 3 of the 1970 NBA Finals. Jerry West of the Los Angeles Lakers sank a sixty-five-foot desperation heave with two seconds left to tie the game, but the New York Knicks won the game in overtime, and eventually the series, to win the NBA championship. Largely unknown is the fact that, after the Knicks went up by two before West's shot, Wilt Chamberlain never was completely out of bounds after he took the ball to inbound it to West. Chamberlain was frustrated and just casually flipped the ball to West and was heading toward the locker room when West hit the shot. See more »

Goofs

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 the big beasts of Hollywood cinema of the 1980s. It's a simple story, one that's well executed by Leonard Nimoy in one of his forays behind the camera, and truth be told there's little to dislike about it as a film. It's basically Steve Guttenberg, Ted Danson, and Tom Selleck in an apartment looking after a baby.

You can guess the easy, laid back nature of the film in this film and it really is an easy viewing experience. Even a mildly suspenseful crime style sub-plot added to the proceedings never endangers the characters much or adds much in the way of real danger to the story. The three main actors are all charismatic and you can easily see why women would fall in love with them, although it's worth noting that the baby is the real scene stealer here.

THREE MEN AND A BABY frequently threatens to veer into cheesy sentimentality, particularly at the climax, but that it never becomes too overwhelming is testament to its success as a film.
