Review by anonymous (posted on 28-Jan-2007)

In my mind the movie is a piece of art. Jerry made a statement in this movie like no others he ever performed in. Carla, his childhood sweetheart who he is still desperately in love with became the mother of triplets. Because she is a big star in Hollywood she does not want the audience to find out and asks Clayton (jerry) to help her out and babysit the baby. But she says "baby" and does not want Clayton to bail out on her because three baby's might be to much. This whole situation drives Clayton to a lot of problems in various ways and he always manages to get ahead of it. Problems with papa Naples who he sees on a regular base because he's the father of Carla and her baby sister Sandra who on her side is in love with Clayton. He doesn't answer her avances because he still loves Carla. The problems with the father are related to that. We can rest assured in the end all allignes as it should. The Triplets will be fine and he becomes a father of 5 himself with Sandra as the mother. Ps: you will all love the elderly woman living next to clayton as a character......really funny. The movie is great and if you ever get the chance to watch it...please do. You'll enjoy
