Sequel to 3 Men and a Baby (1987), Mary starts school. Actress mom is now living in the apartment in NYC with the biological dad and 2 honorary dads, who are still actor, architect and cartoonist. Mom's English boyfriend proposes.
In this, the third film, it's the pets who do the talking. The Ubriacco's find themselves the owners of two dogs, Rocks, a street wise cross breed, and Daphne, a spoiled pedigree poodle. James has a new job, pilot to the sexy and lonely Samantha. Mollie's just lost hers and is stuck at home.Written by
When Mollie (Kirstie Alley) is working as a mall elf, she says to a girl waiting in line "No, I'm a Vulcan." This is an obvious reference to Alley's memorable movie debut in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) where she played Vulcan Lieutenant JG Saavik. See more »
James (John Travolta) has a new job as a pilot for a small airline. Mollie, his wife (Kirstie Alley), has just been handed a pink slip. Their children, Mikey and Julie, are dreaming about a pet dog. Thus begins the third installment of this likeable series of films. Since Mikey and Julie are now talking on their own, the addition of not one, but two family dogs is the explanation of "who's talking now". Rocks (Danny DeVito) is a streetwise pound puppy while Daphne (Diane Keaton) is a pampered poodle that is a gift of James' new boss, Samantha. Speaking of Samantha, she has set her sights on luring James away from his happy family life. Can the family adjust to life with the canines and thwart Samantha's romantic schemes?
This is a funny and fresh addition to the Look Who's Talking series. Travolta and Alley exude such charm and humor that they make a terrific comedy team. The rest of the cast is notable and the voices of DeVito and Keaton bring their doggy personalities to life in a big way. The script is somewhat predictable but still brings a smile to any lucky viewer. There are some scenes involving a wolf that may be scary for the youngest movie enthusiasts. But, on the whole, this is a fine film for the entire family to chuckle over.
