"...Both the babies and the lighting are expert....THREE MEN strikes a funny chord..."
A remake of the hit French comedy "Trois Hommes et un Couffin" ("Three Men and a Cradle") about a trio of confirmed bachelors who unexpectedly discover the joys of fatherhood when a baby is left on their doorstep. The three men -- an actor, an architect and a cartoonist -- share a swanky pad where they entertain a steady succession of one-night stands. This all changes when a woman appears at their apartment one day with the actor's illegitimate infant. Dad happens to be out of town at the time, so it's up to his two woefully inexperienced roommates to deal with the baby that has been abandoned to their care.
The efforts of three confirmed bachelors to care for the infant offspring of one of them provides for some comical and heartwarming situations, especially because the infant is a girl. Remake of the French film "3 Men and a Cradle."
Color by DeLuxe; filmed in Panavision.
Estimated budget of $15 million.
