My Baby's Daddy is not worth the time or money to watch
15 November 2004 | by christian123See all my reviews

Eddie Griffin, Anthony Anderson and Michael Imperioli play three guys, who find themselves facing the responsibilities of fatherhood when their girlfriends all get pregnant at the same time. So can three "players" from "the hood" deal with the rigors of changing diapers and burping?

My Baby's Daddy is a laugh free comedy that's actually worse than its trailer would indicate. The plot is just like 3 Men and a Baby but a lot worse and that movie wasn't even that good to begin with. My Baby's Daddy was the first movie I saw in 2004 and I was hoping it wasn't an omen for things to come. The film couldn't decide what it wanted to be. It could have worked out as a kid's comedy if they had taken out the sex scenes and if it was a kid's movie then the fart jokes would have been understandable. But, there were some jokes that wouldn't be appropriate for them and I think they should had taken the family route.

The movie is filled with fart jokes, poop humor and other lame jokes, these gags are getting old and most adults aren't going to find those jokes funny. The acting was decent with the funniest person probably being Eddie Griffin but he is way above this material. Michael Imperioli was pretty bad himself and he should just stick to The Sopranos. The worst actor in the film is Anthony Anderson who always overacts and its hard to take him seriously. He just tries too hard to be funny and he should really stop acting. Method Man's scenes were funny but he alone can't save this movie. If they had just tried a little harder while writing then they could have actually inserted some funny jokes. The screenplay doesn't contain one original or remotely funny moment. In the end, you would have to be a really, really big fan of anyone involved to see this film. It's better if you just skip it. Rating 2/10
