What to know

critics consensus

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. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Three Men and a Baby

    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.

    as hillarious as the cast, this remake is heartwarming, hillarious, fresh, and original as a newborn baby. B+

    A warm gentle comedy about three bachelors trying to raise a baby - a situation that naturally promises a lot of funny scenarios. A timeless classic.

    "They Changed Her Diapers. She Changed Their Lives" "Three Men and a Baby" is a fine comedy about three bachelors (Ted Danson, Tom Selleck and Steve Guttenberg) who are forced to take care of an abandoned baby that was left on their doorstep who have no idea what to do with a baby. It's a story that embraces parenting and all of its lovable details like dirty diapers, food spit-ups, and lack of sleep. Has many hilarious moments and you have to be a real cynic not to just kick back and enjoy this feel-good comedy/drama.
