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.

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

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Three Men and a Baby is a 1987 movie in which three devil-may-care bachelors must learn to take care of a baby left on their doorstep. The movie opens with a montage of women arriving at and leaving the bachelor pad shared by the three main characters, with the clear implication that they're not there to deliver cookies. The bachelors sleep around, talk of the sex they've had or are having with women. The baby (abandoned by its mother) was the product of one such fling. Sexual insinuation -- woman hints at the size of her boyfriend's penis. Dr. Ruth shown on television talking about women having orgasms. In relation to a heroin-smuggling subplot, some violence regarding a drug dealer is discussed but not seen. It's implied that the heroes and baby are in danger. The entire premise of the movie rests on the assumption that women are somehow natural parents while men must learn. Some drinking and drunkenness -- especially at a party thrown in the apartment the three men share. Profanity throughout the movie including "bulls--t," "s--t," and "d--khead."
