to Three Men and a Baby
Hmmm. Sequels to films that aren't that great in the first place are never an amazing idea. Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible, just not necessarily a film you'd choose to watch. A saving grace is the acting which is certainly above average, but the whole situation is simply less funny than when Mary was a baby. At times she's annoying and you can understand why she's being sent to boarding school. At least they didn't make Three Men and a Woman (actually, someone probably did, but that's another thing entirely).
This film is a very good example of an American view of England. Edward has the most appallingly overplayed accent
and the whole boarding school / British countryside thing is very silly. makes you think no-one involved with the film has ever been to England.
