What a wonderful, classic film! It is still hilarious and at times, very moving, even after all these years!It makes me laugh and cry.
I think most new parents know how having a baby totally transforms your life! This is certainly the case in this film! The three men put aside their ambitions and selfishness to care for Mary, who is an absolutely gorgeous baby! I don't know which part is more heart wrenching though, when the baby leaves later on or the fact that she was left by her mother in the first place.
The trials and tribulations of nappy changing etc are all here, and I think that some aspects of this film can be very familiar to most new parents! You just want to step into the screen and help them!
You might think that the ending will be predictable but there is a slight twist.
There are some real funny scenes, such as when Ted Danson (the actor) disguises himself as a pregnant woman with the real baby hidden inside his clothes! In fact, he's the cause of everything in the first place! Without him there would be no film!
There are a few little touches, such as Tom Selleck who makes sure that Mary has a protective hard hat like the one he wears on his building sites! Cute!
The sequel is very predictable, but you do not watch this for its plot! It's a light hearted film, funny and also very touching. Great if you don't want anything to really think about
and just want a bit of entertainment.
The three fathers are cast brilliantly. All three are well known and brilliant actors in their own right, but they work well together.
Both are lovely harmless films and I enjoy them time and time again! Cheesy perhaps? Some people might think so, but I think they are lovely films, and what a fantastic price! Bargain!
