Overall, it's a modest mediocre 3 star film with no real redeeming value but watchable if you're sick on the couch.

But this made me question any positive response I've ever had to Steve Gutenberg. Was he this awful in the other movies I've seen but I was too young to notice? Was I too distracted to care? Did the other two men and a baby just carry him the whole time? Was it lucky he had a cast of an entire class of police academy buddies or he'd have been like this? Maybe he was just coming off an addiction and cleaning up. I can't imagine what else would explain this. The timing is lousy. Impressions don't really work. You can tell he's trying to be funny but it seems like even he knows he's not. And that doesn't increase my empathy for him here but instead just makes it worse.

The movie is good but the only copy I found was a DVD from the UK which of course doesn't work in our region

This movie was very cute with some very funny bits of action, and dialogue as well. There should have been a sequel!!!

Good show
An uncomplicated story and movie that never-the-less contains clever dialogue and acting that is well executed by the cast. This is a perfect movie for a family pajama Sunday morning. Sophie Lorain is warm, captivating and beautiful to look at in every scene she appears in. Steve Guttenberg is funny and his performance provides a good question as to why he has dropped of the face of the movie map. For the casual entertainment aspects of the story and the charm of the actors I liked it and recommend it.
