This is so unnecessary. This will be a great Segway to boner dogs STOP THE REMAKES!!!!!! Especially when the original is perfectly fine... So what. Who cares? Some films just don’t need to be remade khrankypants moderncrouton I’d rather them just make another police academy Why dose everything need to be remade FFS

THIS JUST IN: ZacEfron gets Dad Bod, then part. Has the well dried up? So sick of remakes and reboots. He’s been a daddy for a while, so this makes sense Absolutely nobody asked for this. Oh God no. It's my favourite movie please stop. Seriously you cannot beat this cast. ❤️ Yeah! my mind interpreted this as 'two and a half men' remake

The remake of a remake... ¿a threemake? Long as they recast Steve gootenburg Why not shake it up and have three mean and an old lady...🤔😜🤣 This remake is unneccessary Wow what next? A ‘Citizen Kane’ remake? Smh Hmmmm.....not sure about this. However whether I watch it or not now strongly lies with whoever they cast for the other 2 guys. The original and sequel are classics. Zac is a funny actor, and I think he can pull it off. But they defo need to hire two other very funny actors.

I don't know why they are bothering? 🤷‍♂️ It will just be a huge flop like all movies that have been remade 🤦‍♂️🙄 Bold choice but I'd have got Danny DeVito as the baby instead Is Hollywood really that devoid of creativity that it needs to keep making remakes of once decent movies and just destroy them! I seriously can’t think of a decent remake...

Eh. This to get more nostalgia subscribers? Cancel the auditions What a crock Disney needs to just FUCK RIGHT OFF!! I hope there's a follow-up film, set 20 years later, in which the abandonment/trust issues of the baby (now a young woman) are dealt with? Also, I hope this film helps raise awareness of the financial and emotional struggles of lone parents, who are almost all women, thanks

Is he playing the baby? The tension waiting for this to happen will be absolutely bearable. I really can wait. Noooooo. Leave the original fims alone. Finally a pic of zach that makes me feel hot Don’t understand why a remake is necessary? The original cast are brilliant. Find new material! So they have not only scraped through the bottom of the barrel they are halfway to fucking China. Enough with the remakes.

Hope they don't forget the ghost in the remake Nope....just nope......the original is unbeatable. You're never gonna beat Selleck, Guttenburg and Danson singing Goodnight Sweetheart.... In today's edition of movie remakes no one asked for: No thanks 🙅🏻‍♀️ For fuck sake. I love Zac but this movie is such a gem in its own right that i don't think it will at all be the same, or have that charm. Leave it be.

They are going to call it thee men and a manlady Why? Bloody awful films! Does Hollywood know most remakes fall flat on their faces, not many do well, especially comedies. God forbid Hollywood has the ability to think of a new film for themselves. I’m sick to death of remakes. It’s no wonder actors are migrating to the likes of Netflix, etc.

Seems that USA have lost film making ideas that they've resorted to doing remakes of old ones 🙄🥱never be as good as the originals I don't think Three Men and Baby should be remade when I'm still waiting for Father of the Bride 3!!!!! SteveMartinToGo I think I saw the 'adult' version of Three Men and a Baby, once. It involved 3 bears, and a hungry pig who was looking for something that fit juuuust right. Apparently, he huffed, and he puffed, and he blew the house down. I think Babe was the nickname of that pig. Or Dontcha

martinlarbey I'm guessing you'll have an opinion on this? Ffs. Get some new ideas. Stop making shit versions of classics Jeez. Is this a joke? I know so many gay couples who are brilliant with their kids and other wonderful dads, some single, some not. DisneyPlus wake up! It’s not the 1950s. How old are your decision makers? ZacEfron what are you thinking? Unbelievable. Sexism ThreeMenAndABaby

The remake should have been a gender swap. More proof that Zac Efron is the modern day Steve Gutenberg. How about ZacEfron , DaveedDiggs and kumailn with Charlieday as the voice of the baby. 3 Men and a baby/ Look Who’s Talking in a mashup/reboot please don't Disney It was already a remake. From a french movie « 3 hommes et un couffin ». So there’s will be a remake from a remake 🤔

How many remakes are there? No new ideas? 🤦🏻‍♀️ God damn it TedDanson better be in this movie one way or another. 😤😡🤬🤮 alexisjessicaa Hollywood is completely washed up. Ruined My position on reopening movie theaters has been shook to its core... The remake nobody asked for... Eff that 💩 stop bootlegging the classics disney!

im baby Why mess with the classics This generation will have no classics of its own if they keep recycling old ones NO! This is one of my all time favourite movies. Why is it that no one has an original idea anymore so they remake amazing movies and turn them to crap? I’m in talks to reprise my role as the creepy ghost boy lurking in the curtains.

CarliGurtshaw WHAT Sign me up! This will be awesome! ZacEfron is da shit! He plays the baby I’ll play the ghost (cut-out of tom selleck) How about 3 sorrows a ottoman!? Who will be playing the ghost in the window? NOOOOOOOO the next three men movie was supposed to be Three Men and a Bride!! With Steve Guttenberg, Tom Selleck, and TedDanson

This is probably the WORST photo you could have picked.... He looks like he’s about Star in Tiger King the movie. Why? Are there no other ideas out there? I hope it doesn’t get haunted! Thrupple and a baby! make him be da baby melissasoro Si... who are they going to cast as the ghost? The only dads are Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Dansen

As a Zac Efron fan, let me say: What NOBODY Demanded! Wow I can’t wait Just. Fucking. Stop. aterontia if you’ve seen this already sorry but I had to tag you this pic though Oh good god, stop all the damn remakes. Does anyone have an original idea anymore? He will play the baby? Rigth WHY They originally planned to make Three Men and a Bride including Tim Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg but they dropped it and remake Three Men and a baby. I am disappointed about that.

As the 👶🏼 A reboot? How original. Good god. Why? Stop it with the remakes and the reboots. We don’t care. Zac can do whatever he well pleases. Ok 😍🤷🏻‍♀️ No thanks A HomeAlone remake, live action remakes, Disney has become king of remakes vs original storytelling. What happened? Now a ThreeMenAndABaby remake 😬

GlennRubenstein , if this isn't the talk of today's podcast I don't know what a podcast is anymore Another recycle Do people today not have any imagination. NO sense watching these as we have already seen them Heck freaking yes! PASS! ‼️ Am I the only one who looked at the comments to see how many gays would say “I’m Baby”

michael b jordan get the call yet? OMG!!! Is he going to be Tom Selleck!!! 💙💙💙 Like how about '3 WOMEN & A BABY'...A woman who can;t have kids, or a couple who can't have kids, decides to adopts a baby, gets a boy' and hilarity ensues, etc.. OH WAIT...The Anti-women/female//LGBTQ-couple jackoff's will RAGE against that idea like they do everything else

In yet ANOTHER: 'YES, EVERYONE in Hollywood cannot come up with ANY NEW & ORIGINAL IDEAS, so we're going back to the well and rebooting old movie's & TV Series' Announcements' Why though. Who will be the ghost? It's ok Tom, we're all in this together! Back to his Disney roots lmao. The High school musical back together movie coming 2023...

Zac Efron is the Steve Guttenberg of our time Who are they casting as 'The Ghost of the dead kid in the window'? Not for me but a slight applause for properly calling this a remake and not a reboot. Just think.....right now there is a baby being born who will be able to star in the remake of the remake which was a remake of an adaption of the french film

Now cast Micheal b Jordan and Henry Golding cause I would pay to see that 💀 what do they call movies that used to be called “direct to video?“ 'Stache Zac Efron has become Tom Selleck Wowowiiwiw I'm baby? That is something I really haven't been waiting for Oh creative Who are playing the three men?
