I saw a commercial for Three Men and a Baby on Showtime. It’s not on my list of faves, but I still find myself thinking about a Klaine sendup.
Four Men and a Baby
Kurt, Blaine, Sam and Elliott are best friends and roommates. They met working at The Spotlight Diner when they were all in college. They’re in their late twenties now, all successful and on the brink of mega success: Kurt in fashion, Blaine on Broadway, Sam as a model and Elliott with his band. They’ve been roommates for years and live in a swank apartment where they throw legendary parties and live a fabulous life. They are all firmly committed to being single.
While Elliott is away on tour, a woman leaves a baby girl at their apartment door, claiming one of them is the father. Kurt, Blaine and Sam tag team taking care of the little girl, leading to hilarious fails, midnight a cappella lullabies, arguments about organic baby food, general precious mayhem, and a “booty schedule” that starts as an attempt to keep their sex lives intact while caring for the baby, but ends up being about naps.
Kurt and Blaine assume Sam is the baby’s father, but it turns out Elliott had a weekend fling with her mother–his one and only experience with a woman–and he’s Daddy. In the weeks before Elliott returns from his tour, Kurt and Blaine grow closer and find it increasingly difficult to pretend they haven’t had a crush on each other for years. They bond over their mutual love for the baby girl and when Elliott comes back and takes over some of her care, they give in to temptation and start having a “secret” fling: quickies in the tiny laundry room, 3am confessions about their feelings, bad acting when caught sneaking out of each other’s bedrooms, corny flirting.
Some angst around whether Elliott will keep the baby or not, but mostly farcical fun and romance of the silly and endearing variety. What do you think?
