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 »

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.
