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.
