I thought it would be funny but it wasn't.

Omg--Eddie Griffin, Anthony Anderson and Michael Imperioli!??! This is gonna be good!
NOT to be confused with Daddy Day Care. Plot is cute, and the hilarity that ensues with all these inept men's men trying to take care of their babies says it ALL. Now you wouldn't think of Michael Imperioli as being funny in any way...Unless! you have seen him on the Sopranos. That tough, street, life of crime drama has some damn funny moments. The boy is funny. So when he's put together with two of today's funniest black comedians, not to mention Method Man (Hello!) you've got some big laughs comin' out of you! One of the reviews on the back says, "Three Men and a Baby meet Boyz in the Hood!"! I thought that was funny.

"There's a long-standing rule of thumb in the motion picture business that the more writers who have a hand in making a movie the worse that movie will turn out to be. In the case of "My Baby's Daddy," it took four scenarists (who shall remain nameless) to come up with this excruciatingly bad multi-ethnic rip off of "Three Men and a Baby." The plotting comes direct from the TV sitcom factory: three bachelors, who have never grown up into responsible adulthood, simultaneously find themselves the fathers of three adorable infants. Naturally, after much initial bumbling and stumbling in the ways of parenthood, the three men learn what the true definition of manhood is.Though the movie has some fun lampooning racial and ethnic stereotypes, the humor is generally so bland, broad and formulaic that any promise the movie offers that it might somehow qualify as satire quickly evaporates. Instead, the movie goes all soft and gooey, trying to get the audience to coo over the cute toddlers and sigh at the sight of three grown men who are themselves cooing over their toddlers. Considering the material that's been handed them, one hesitates to be too harsh on the actors who find themselves trapped in this mess. However, because of guilt by association, the only people who escape entirely unscathed are the toddlers themselves, since they are clearly the only ones here still under the age of consent."
Watch the trailer--it's better than the movie

"Someone owes me three bucks for renting this movie, excuse me, waste of time and money. I'll give it to you, the trailer made me think I was going to be actually watching a comedy. And Anthony Anderson is usually a bright spot in any film. Poor Anthony couldn't save this dog. I was dismayed when my husband and I rented this movie and discovered that the best and only jokes of the film were shown on the trailers. They were also shown fairly early in the film too. So we basically sat watching the movie in dead silence. I began daydreaming to entertain myself until my husband begged me to turn it off. Yep, it was that bad. We can only stand about 45-50 minutes of crap at at a time. Please save your money and buy food or gas or a better movie. If I've saved just one person money from staying away from this movie, than I feel I've done my good deed for the day."
What a waste of time.

"This movie is never funny. It is never intelligent. It is not worth the time it takes to watch. It is an insult to intelligence. It is a waste of film. It is a ridiculous waste altogether. I don't have much respect for Eddie Griffin, after "DysFunKtional Family," but Anthony Anderson and Michael Imperioli are better than this. Please tell me there just wasn't anything better to do guys. Skip this at all costs."
Has a positive message and a lot of heart. Cut this movie a

"My Baby's Daddy is a noble attempt at a comedy about fatherhood and responsibility. I can't beat up on this movie; it's not that Bad. My Baby's Daddy isn't the funniest movie, but at least its heart was in the right place. I give props to everyone for at least trying to make a film showing black men taking charge of their lives. Thanks to the heart and strong efforts of the cast and crew My Baby's Daddy overcomes its production obstacles and is overall a watchable entertaining movie. Mad props to Eddie Griffin and co for showing black men in a positive light and a balanced picture of black life in the ghetto. We need more efforts like this. The story follows three lifelong Philadelphia friends who are just coasting through life. Coincidentally their three girlfriends get pregnant and have their babies at the same time and give birth at the same time. From there we have hi-jinx and humor as the men learn moderation and adjust their quest for their dreams to fit their changing lives. The story has a happy ending that will leave the viewer satisfied. Production values on this movie are solid. The camera work is great and the editing is tight. Scenes transition into one another seamlessly, unlike some of those big budget action movies I've watched(*cough Daredevil, X2, X3, Cough). You feel like you're in the Philadelphia neighborhood hanging out with the fellas. Even though six writers worked on this screenplay the story is tight and cohesive with solid dialogue and a few funny lines. The acting here is pretty good, everyone does make an effort to make their characters convincing. Eddie Griffin, Anthony Anderson and Michael Imperioli are solid as the three dads. Method Man is hilarious for the short time he's onscreen. Bai Ling is very good as Anderson's girlfriend. She steals most of the scenes she's in and is often funnier than the guys in some cases. John Amos makes a great cameo as Uncle Bernie. My Baby's Daddy is worth a rental at best. If you want an interesting study of black men and relationships, pick up How U like me Now. (Yeah, I keep pushing that movie in every review, but this extremely underrated film is THAT good.) "

"I had nothing to do and it was raining. I knew Anthony Anderson and Eddie Griffin are pretty funny, so why not. The movie was cute and it did have it's funny moments. Don't buy it, but it will make you chuckle."
