Storyline

Five happy years after baby Mary's arrival in Three Men and a Baby (1987), the ecstatic single fathers and still-unrepentant bachelors, Peter, Michael, and Jack, find themselves living under the same roof with Mary's British actress mother, Sylvia. However, things will take a turn for the unexpected, when Sylvia decides to move to the United Kingdom, after a promising business proposition combined with a welcome marriage proposal by her director and husband-to-be, Edward. In low spirits, the three fathers travel to bustling London, where one of them discovers that he has deeper feelings for Sylvia and that Edward might have a secret agenda. Will the three men and their little lady let Edward break up their family? Written by Nick Riganas

England is NOT like this
3 November 1999 | by nick wassSee all my reviews

Possibly the worst ever portrayl of "Merrie England" by Hollywood. What do those guys think we do here in the UK all day, bumble about in wooden cars around country lanes?

This film is just utter tripe and a serious insult to the English. If you've never been to the UK it is NOTHING like this film shows it. OK, so film makers have a certain amount of artistic license, but this is really too bad altogether. It would be the same as showing the US populated wholly by overweight burger chomping rednecks. But it isn't, is it.

Watch something else and do yourself a favour.
