Trivia

During the two week rehearsal period before filming began, then-bachelors Tom Selleck and Steve Guttenberg took the long-married Ted Danson out on the town with them, visiting a few Toronto night clubs, bars, and restaurants, to rekindle the feeling of bachelorhood they had to project in the film. The three caused a lot of excitement among the public whenever they went out to party. See more »

Cute comedy
24 February 2001 | by jhaggardjrSee all my reviews

"3 Men and a Baby" is a comedy that's cute and funny. Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Danson star as three bachelors who live together, and who's lives are changed forever when on one particular day a baby infant is left on their doorstep. The three bachelors are now forced unexpectedly to become fathers to the baby. Plenty of wonderful comedy scenes throughout as the three stars go through the frustrations of having to deal with this infant girl in the early stages, then the baby eventually starts to win them over. If only the filmmakers threw out the subplot involving drugs, then this film would've been a great comedy.

*** (out of four)
