Throwback Thursday-3 Men and a Baby (1987)

Being single and childless is easy. Outside of your professional responsibilities, you do whatever you like with whomever you like, no questions asked.

But when you have a child, everything changes.

In the 80’s classic, 3 Men and a Baby (1987), Peter (Tom Selleck), Michael (Steve Guttenberg) & Jack (Ted Danson) are living the single life. Nothing impedes their bachelor lifestyle, that is until Jack’s ex drops the child he did not know existed into their laps.

Can these grown men, for whom parenting is the last thing they expected to do, take care of this child?

This plot line was a trend in the 80’s. Whether it was Full House, Who’s The Boss or this film, men stepping into the traditional female role of childcare was often played for laughs. But it also represented the fact that the gender lines and responsibilities were beginning to blur.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
