Nipples are mentioned a few times throughout the film.
Peter and Rebecca are in bed together. Rebecca is naked but covered by sheets. They kiss and embrace before the scene ends.
Early in the film there is a scene where a background television (clearly audible) shows a presenter discussing female orgasms with relation to penis size. The focal character quickly turns off the set however could lead to awkward questions from small children!
The three men, especially Jack and Peter, view casual sex lightly and this comes across in dialogue particularly in the opening fifteen minutes or so and occassionally afterwards.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


By chance, I saw the family comedy ‘3 men and a baby’ and its follow-up ‘3 men and a little lady’ on cinemax. Before watching the film, I only knew that the film had many fans and was also a box office giant in those years, but I was disappointed after watching it, because the first impression was “mediocre, chicken ribs”; After watching the sequel, my only understanding is to sell the man’s popularity at that time.

But if the film is really so “mediocre, chicken ribs” (IMDb score is 5.9 and 5.3 respectively), how can it still be discussed by the audience 30 years later and given a three-star evaluation by Roger Ebert (Ebert’s system has a full score of four stars)? I once wondered whether this film has created a precedent, but judging from the current evaluation and data, it is not certain. However, I found some good back stories in reading various film reviews and back stories; Although these stories, for me, did not completely sublimate the film and had a deeper potential to break through the barriers of family comedy, they are still very interesting and helpful for the understanding of the film, so they are sorted out as follows. I hope someone will like them.

Before the beginning of the text, friends interested in the sequel can go to IMDB page to query relevant information. The information and content introduction on the second part of Douban are wrong.

【1】 About ghosts

In the scene of mother visiting baby, a young man suddenly appeared. When watching, you can obviously “see” the young man. The teenager has nothing to do with the main plot of the film, nor does it say that “montage” shows the relationship between baby and the teenager or paves the way for other branches. Subconsciously think this is a bug, a shooting fault truthfully recorded by the camera. Some friends and neighbors extended to “this mediocre film has a place in the film history and has made a reference value for the formation of the style of Japanese horror films”. I have not found an article basis for this statement for the time being, but I can see that this problem has been noticed by many audiences, and has led to the perception of “ghosts” caused by mechanical errors.

There are various guesses about the identity of the boy, some of which say that it is the ghost of the boy who died at the real shooting scene. This speculation and the film side’s refusal to respond at that time intensified this statement, but stimulated the performance of the film in rental market. However, this statement was clarified by Tom Selleck in the tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon 30 years later.

“The story was that this kid died in the house where we shot the movie, this little boy,” he said. “Well, we shot on a soundstage, they built a set and all.”

【2】 About initiative

The three leading actors Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg were at their peak at that time. Selleck’s most familiar role for domestic audiences should be Monica’s cross age boyfriend Richard in friends; Danson is Sam, the hero of icon sitcom cheers. Guttenberg is not so well-known in China, but he is also an actor with stars on Star Avenue. There are a lot of analysis and introduction on the three, so I won’t repeat them.

But director Leonard Nimoy actually has a lot of background. He is the player of Spock in the film “Star Trek: the first generation”. He also directed “Star Trek: breaking the sky” and “Star Trek: saving the future”. He has made achievements in music, writing and video production. He is a real omniscient. I believe many Star Trek fans have supported this work.

The little baby Mary in the film was actually played by two actors, Lisa and Blair, who were only four months old and twins. In their later memories, both said they didn’t remember that they had acted in this work, but they did mention that they would feel concerned when they were young. They are now working in the insurance and customer service industries. Mary in the sequel is played by Robin Weisman. He was an active child star in the United States from 90 to 94. Now he is no longer engaged in the performing arts industry.

Although GUI was the box office leader in 1987, the production process was not smooth. He experienced the rejection of Tristar and universal, and was finally recognized by Walt Disney and succeeded in one fell swoop. Shenberg, the boss of globegroup at that time, said frankly that the film “soft” was not in line with his taste. The sequel, although the three men stayed, the director refused to continue his guidance because of other projects.

【3】 About box office and influence

In this regard, only a column of data is needed to show people’s crazy love for it at that time. Although the plot has been criticized to some extent, its box office appeal is undeniable. This also triggered a discussion on the value of Box Office vs film and television. It has nothing to do with this article and will not be expanded for the time being.

In 1987, it got a domestic box office of $167780960 and a box office of $10384392 at the first weekend. It spans 22 weeks and remains the box office champion at the weekend of the seventh week of release (falling to No. 2 halfway). From November 1997 to June 1998. For specific results, you can query box office mojo

The box office champion in 87 years surpassed a series of films such as fatal attraction, good morning, Vietnam, Beverly Hills Cop II, etc.

Its influence and formal expression (the joke caused by three bachelors with dolls) spread all over the world. Alan Garner, the hangover Series in the United States, said frankly that his film “it’s got Ted Danson, magnum P.I, and that Jewish actor”. There are 90 years of direct remake of Malaysia film thoovalsparsham abroad, and there are more films about babysitter indirectly.
