sitcom garbage
28 June 2004 | by Buddy-51See all my reviews

There's a long-standing rule of thumb in the motion picture business that the more writers who have a hand in making a movie the worse that movie will turn out to be. In the case of `My Baby's Daddy,' it took four scenarists (who shall remain nameless) to come up with this excruciatingly bad multi-ethnic rip off of `Three Men and a Baby.' The plotting comes direct from the TV sitcom factory: three bachelors, who have never grown up into responsible adulthood, simultaneously find themselves the fathers of three adorable infants. Naturally, after much initial bumbling and stumbling in the ways of parenthood, the three men learn what the true definition of manhood is.

Though the movie has some fun lampooning racial and ethnic stereotypes, the humor is generally so bland, broad and formulaic that any promise the movie offers that it might somehow qualify as satire quickly evaporates. Instead, the movie goes all soft and gooey, trying to get the audience to coo over the cute toddlers and sigh at the sight of three grown men who are themselves cooing over their toddlers.

Considering the material that's been handed them, one hesitates to be too harsh on the actors who find themselves trapped in this mess. However, because of guilt by association, the only people who escape entirely unscathed are the toddlers themselves, since they are clearly the only ones here still under the age of consent.
