The American remake of Trois Homme Et Une Couffin is a crowd-pleasing but also sweet-natured, enjoyable comedy. Three bachelor roommates () have their lives interrupted by the appearance of a baby girl on their front step, the product of Danson’s tryst with .  Danson is an actor and currently on location shooting a film in Turkey, meaning the two of them have to keep the kid clothed and fed until the father comes back and these three dolts have to learn how to take care of this helpless little child.  Danson has also unwittingly stepped into trouble with drug dealers who target his clueless roommates and brings trouble from the law in the process.  It’s fun watching the guys struggle with dirty diapers and lullabies, but it’s not exactly witty either; a subplot involving villains is too ridiculously Hollywood for words.
