Episode 86 - Three Men and a Baby

Weirdly, Mr. Spock himself Leonard Nimoy (not Dr. Spock) directed the highest-grossing film of 1987, "Three Men and a Baby." He might be famous for his ears, but he certainly doesn’t have an ear for comedy.

On top of being a one-note joke movie where a trio of rapscallion bachelors don't know how to look after a baby, it also involves a bizarre subplot about heroin dealers chasing after them.

Tom Selleck (of "Magnum, P.I." fame) and his mustache play architect Peter Mitchell, a man in a long-term open-relationship who weirdly lives with his two best buds in a high-rise New York City penthouse apartment, even though he's in his 40s and seems like he has $100 million in the bank.

Steve Guttenberg (of "Police Academy" fame) plays one those roommates, cartoonist Michael Kellam, who pens a famous comic strip about a racist cheetah with sunglasses named Johnny Cool.

Ted Danson (of "Cheers" fame) plays the other roommate, actor Jack Holden, who is the father of the baby left on their doorstep by an awful British woman he used to bang. And it makes sense that he's the father, considering he pulls in slightly more tail than his lothario besties.

Join us as we discuss mock Nancy Travis' awful acting, marvel at how this creepy sex romp and drug caper movie (that happens to have a baby in it) was somehow made by Disney, and as Keating scolds Jim for using the word "cute."
