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

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

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

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.

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.

The original French version was much better.
