Lonnie, Dominic and 'G' are three bachelor buddies from the hood who, after a lifetime of hard-partying, are in for a crude awakening when their respective girlfriends all get pregnant at the same time. The fathers-to-be embark on an emotional journey while learning as much about themselves as they do about love and fatherhood.
This lame comedy squanders a promising — if not entirely original premise. Three feckless Philadelphia bachelors (Anthony Anderson, Eddie Griffin and Michael Imperioli) must learn responsibility when they become fathers. The movie's blithe multiculturalism is a refreshing sign that longstanding Hollywood taboos on interracial sex have faded, but the overloaded plot generates precious few laughs as it tries to mine the unlovely facts of parenthood — spitup, diapers, breastfeeding — for jokes that are at once coarse and timid. — A.
