Mini Retro Review: My Baby's Daddy (2004) #badmovies

My Baby's Daddy

A Black version of Three Men and a Baby, a trio of men are forced to grow up when their girlfriends become pregnant at the same time, the film undermines its intentions when it goes down the vulgar, low brow route and thus lacks any sort of heart and understanding. It's part -Three Men and a Baby, part- Nine Months starring Hugh Grant. Throw in fart and flatulence jokes and poop gags and underdeveloped and unappealing characters, it is also littered with tired and sad racial stereotypes. The story is barely established, the jokes are bland, recycled and have been executed better elsewhere and whilst they may come across as amusing and good-natured the attempts at humour fall on deaf ears, & its use of foul language and coarse racial terms leaves a sour taste. There is a Look Who's Talking - like scene with 2 babies talking for no explicable reason. The film also tries to have its cake and eat it and preach about responsibility and in doing so, it becomes extremely petty and arrant. It also reminds me of the similarly- themed Daddy Day Care with Eddie Murphy (which is way better than this), whereas Three Men & A Baby, though not great, was charming; My Baby's Daddy, on the other hand, is mostly blah and crude. 

Is It Worth Watching?

Absolutely not
