This sequel to the 1987 blockbuster film picks up five years after the first film and reintroduces the three bachelors from the original--architect Peter (Tom Selleck), cartoonist Michael (Steve Guttenberg), and amorous would-be actor Jack (Ted Danson). The baby they struggled to care

for in the original is now a five-year-old charmer, Mary (Robin Weisman). Mary's mom, Sylvia (Nancy Travis), is also back and as the film opens, all are part of a happy extended family. Trouble brews, however, when Sylvia, also an aspiring actress, announces that she is taking Mary with her to

England, where she is to star in a play directed by her current boy friend, Edward (Christopher Cazenove). The three bachelor-papas are upset by the prospect of the breakup of the "family," and then Sylvia gives them even worse news: she has accepted Edward's marriage proposal. While Jack, Mary's

biological father, isn't in love with Sylvia, he's despondent over the thought of his daughter leaving. Peter also has a special reason to be opposed to Sylvia's move--he's long been secretly in love with her. At first the bachelors stoically accept Sylvia's decision, but once mother and daughter

depart for the United Kingdom, despair sets in, and the three decide to head for London. Once there, Peter realizes how deeply he loves Sylvia, but he's been burned before, and fears making another commitment. However, when he learns that, after they are married, Edward plans to pack Mary off to a

rigid boarding school, he is moved to action. There follows a series of misadventures, which only serve to delay the inevitable happy ending in which mother, daughter, and the three bachelors all seem to get what they want.

While it's not a top-drawer romantic comedy, this is certainly a worthy sequel to THREE MEN AND A BABY. Selleck, Guttenberg, and Danson share a nice chemistry that smoothly blends the elements of comedy, romance, and pathos...and this comfortable balance makes for an enjoyable film. Travis and

little Weisman lend fine support, but the actress who steals every scene she's in is Fiona Shaw, who plays the sex-starved head of the boarding school Mary is slated to attend. Cazenove is appropriately insincere, and Jonathan Boswall has a few choice moments as a batty butler. Director Emile

Ardolino (DIRTY DANCING, CHANCES ARE) keeps the action lively and the pace quick, and all the technical credits are first-rate. (Adult situations, mild profanity.)
