"I remember when I was a kid, I probably rented this movie so many times that I could have bought several copies. For some reason, that thought never occurred to me. But I never regretted shelling out $1.50 to be able to have that movie in my possession for a whole day. Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson return in their roles as three bachelors raising a five-year old girl along with her mother, played by Nancy Travis. This time around, we see little Mary struggling with the fact that her family is different from those of her peers, and then her mother, Sylvia, announcing her engagement to an Englishman who is going to move the three of them to England. Then Peter (Tom Selleck's character) realizes that he is in love with Sylvia so he rushes to England to stop the wedding.This movie definitely has a different feel than the first movie. The latter was more of a comedy of three confirmed bachelors struggling to take care of a six-month old baby. "Little Lady" is more of a sentimental, romantic movie. For whatever reason, I found the second movie to be more enjoyable. This is a great movie to watch when you are in the mood for a light movie that is an oldie but a goody."

"Great sequel but I'm disappointed that it's in pan & scan. What really baffles me is that "Three Men and a Baby" is released in widescreen."
This movie is high quality stuff

"This movie really is quality stuff. So much that I wish that they would make another sequel with the new one called, "Three Men and A Teenager".The English Countryside is quite a beautiful place that can be seen in this movie. Very picturesque. I can see why Sylvia and Mary wanted to leave New York City for this magnificent landscape among England's greenest hills. In addition, the soundtrack is so befitting and appropriate for this film. It isn't that heavy and annoying music... but light and fanciful instrumental sounds that are placed at key points in the movie that adds that special touch to that unexpected scene that always surprises you, however, the lyrical highlight is Boy Meets Girl's, "Waiting For A Star To Fall."The acting is superb with some big names in the cast line-up. The costumes are very appropriate as well for this film. Not to mention, the English lifestyle and the characters with a heavy British accent depicted are very realistic and authentic. Very well thought out and original I must say.If you are a kid, you will love the "little lady" and the parenting issue. If you are a guy, you will love the "three men" and the bachelor aspect to it. And if you are a romantic at heart, you will adore the budding love story that develops between Peter and Sylvia. Three Men and A Little Lady truly has something for everyone, young and old alike. I give it two big thumbs up!One suggestion, if you like this movie, your next option would be to watch Hugh Grant and Julia Robert's, "Notting Hill." This is another quality film that highly resembles "Three Men and A Little Lady.""
Tom Sellick shines in this sequel

"This is the sequel to the smash hit Three Men and a Baby (which was a remake of the French break out hit Three Men and a Cradle).
It is now five years later. Mary, Sylvia and the boys are cohabitating in the guys apartment. But Mary wants more stability in her and Mary's life. When the director of her current Broadway smash falls for Sylvia, the happy group is about to break up. Even worse, Sylvia, Mary and Edward are moving to England.
But the boys think that "something is rotten in Denmark." They run over to England to rescue Sylvia and Mary. And it turns out that Edward is the rotter that they think he is. But now they need the proof to show Sylvia.
This is a good sequel but it not a great sequel (great story but too much irrelavant slapstick). What this movie does is give a vehicle for Tom Sellick (Peter - the architect) to shine. Tom has always been a nice amiable actor but has never had a role to breakout of his Magnum PI image. This one showed that he has more than just one character in him.
Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg return as the "biological" Jack (the actor) and other "honorary father" Michael (the satirist) but they are just there for the ride. It is Tom's show. (Athough Ted has a great turn a the fake Vicar.)
Nancy Travis returns as Sylvia and actually is in the entire movie instead of arrive at the end like the first. And she proves that she has a great sense of time and can fake a British accent almost as good as Gwenyth.
This is a beautiful romantic comedy. Too bad they stooped to some unneccesary slapstick at times. BUT!!! I recommend this film wholehearted, and it stands on its own."
Needs a director's cut and another sequel

"3 Men and a Baby was a one of a kind comedy that showed three men struggling to take care of a baby girl. Six years later (this sequel was actually made three years after the original) Tom Selleck, Ted Danson, and Steve Guttenberg are raising and rooming with the little lady known as Mary as well as Mary's mother (Nancy Travis) who returns from her brief role in the first movie to play a larger role in this one. Does the sequel hold up to the first? To a degree I can say it does. The humor is good and so is the acting for the most part. I felt, however, that this film was a bit rushed. There were not any major plot holes to speak of but I wish that the movie had of been a bit longer than what it was. I just want to point out that Leonard Nimoy did not return to direct this film. Plus, the dvd like 3 Men and a Baby has no features though unlike 3 Men and a Baby cannot be viewed in widescreen. 3 Men and a Little Lady is certainly worth viewing despite these minor flaws. While I can see why some people favor the original a bit more, this sequel is a decent follow-up that shouldn't be missed. It would have been nice for another sequel to come out in which Mary is a teenager along with Selleck, Danson, Guttenberg, and Travis returning for a third time. Oh well, I guess that is just wishful thinking."
