Director Cheryl Dunye (The Watermelon Woman, Stranger Inside) has been fighting the good fight for years as an independent filmmaker, so I guess she's entitled to take the money and run.

There are some jokes here, and any of these situations could have been funny as skits. Taken together, they're incoherent.

The antic, energetic performances are game, but they're overwhelmed by erratic pacing and disorganized writing.

A father wincing at the sight of his baby's green poop is the highlight of this laugh-free comedy.

Births a big litter of bad jokes for every chuckle it manages to squeeze out.

A tired send-up of hip-hop-isms that also aspires to be a Waiting to Exhale for men.

That it took Griffin and three (credited) collaborators to come up with a script this by-numbers only proves once again that too many cooks homogenize the soup.

It feels both forced and mean-spirited, to say nothing of out-of-step with the hip-hop generation.

It starts with implausible characters and descends into potty jokes (not just involving babies), racial stereotypes and a criminal lack of originality.

Maybe the title should have been Three Men and a Turkey.

How these guys are broken by their babies is hit-and-miss comedy, but the film's element of truth ... keeps it from sailing off the screen like the gas from its oh-so-many flatulence jokes.

It's not the worst premise for humor dashed with a little wisdom, but the script, written by the film's star Eddie Griffin and others, is less than inspired and tends to blur the line between immaturity and just plain stupidity.

The finished product looks like it was thrown together during a lunch break -- by a drunk person.

There are lots of cheap, easy gags and some uncomfortably incorrect humor, but the film has a good heart.

Diapers, even from three babies, can't stink worse than this.
