The American remake of the popular French comedy mostly works a charm under the combined talents of the three leads, who play nicely against type -- although forced plot elements and sentimentality at times dampen the fun.

Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg play three upwardly mobile New York bachelors who share an apartment.

The film works well despite its predictability, perhaps because of it.

It has the likability of the first movie. The people who made it have carried over much of the original's weightless, sweet-tempered flavor.

As a sometime actor, Nimoy understands how to get good performances from the members of his cast.

It would be a better movie if everyone involved had concentrated on making the behavior of the three heroes more believable.

Film is a good showcase for the comic abilities of this threesome, all of whom seem to have their one-liner timing down pat.

It is shamelessly sentimental, and could well send the hardboiled home to kick the cat.

The three lead performances, Selleck's especially, are wonderfully self-effacing.

For a better time, however, rent Serreau`s original film at the video store.

The leads acquit themselves fairly well, but the biggest winner is Selleck, whose low-key charm and gift for light comedy are put to good use here.

Still charming and watchable. The three leads show their comedy potential.

The mix of comedy and melodrama is pretty well done.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Simple-minded situation comedy, but undeniably appealing.

Based on the French film, Three Men and a Cradle, this is acceptable comedy, but cinema it is not.

Saccharine feel-good mainstream comedy geared to the Lowest Common Denominator.

A brilliant mix of comedy, drama and thrills. A real delight.

Let me just put it this way: if you've ever had a baby, spent time with a baby, or been within 20 yards of a baby, you know why this is funny.

Some forced elements to give a action form to the remake together with an unnecessary silliness, Leonard Nimoy's comedy have a likable stars, sweet and interesting scenes.

A silly movie, a little stupid at times, but it's got a good cast and it's pretty funny most of the time too. Overall, it's okay.
