Sitcommy. Mindless. Inoffensive.
There are many levels of film quality provided you’ve seen enough of them. Three Men and a Little Lady, the uncalled-for sequel to the equally silly Three Men and a Baby, is on the most common level. The level of harmless, enjoyable mediocrity. If the title seems better fit for a sitcom, it’s probably because the plot is as well. Peter (Selleck), Michael (Guttenberg), and Jack (Danson) live comfortably with Sylvia (Travis) and her daughter, Mary. They dote on Mary but Sylvia feels it’s time for a more typical family arrangement and becomes engaged to the wealthy Brit, Edward (Cazenove). Edward turns out to be a jerk, which is convenient since Peter realizes that he loves Sylvia and flies over to England to stop the wedding. Three Men and a Little Lady is overly sweet, of course. Predictable. Likable.
