"[With] whistlestop comic timing and a tinge of thoughtful melancholy..."
A delightful comedy about three confirmed bachelors whose lives become topsy-turvy when they find an abandoned baby girl on their doorstep. Winner of three French awards and nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. Remade in the United States as "Three Men and a Baby."
The film that charmed France -- and inspired the big-budget American sequel "Three Men and a Baby." Three bachelors, who have never before fed, diapered or cared for an infant, find themselves in possession of a baby girl whose mother -- a former girlfriend of one of the trio -- unexpectedly dumps her with them. Unfortunately, figuring out exactly what to do with tiny, helpless creature doesn't come easy for the men, as they bungle, stumble and make a generally comical mess of the job. But as they gradually uncover the mysteries of child-rearing, they discover how much fun it can be... and how easily a sweet baby girl can worm her way into your heart.
