The initial set-up is unbelievable, the plotting is predictable and stale, and the comedy depends on repetitive pratfalls that soon get old.

Movie Info

Two big families merge into one super-sized brood in this comedy. Frank Beardsley (Dennis Quaid) is a naval officer who has been raising eight children on his own after the death of his wife, and while he loves his kids, he rules his household with military precision. Frank has been alone just long enough that he decides it's time to start dating again, and he agrees to be set up on a blind date for a social function. To his surprise, his date turns out to be Helen North (Rene Russo), a girl he

I'm partial to Quaid and Russo, but there are limits.

Not a fresh insight or genuine laugh in sight. Nothing here, in fact, for you, him, her, yours, mine, theirs or anybody's.

Regardless of a distinct lack of romantic chemistry between Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo, the able-bodied actors fulfill the slapstick demands of this run-of-the-mill family comedy based on the 1968 movie with Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball.

Looking to follow the Cheaper By The Dozen formula to box office success, Yours, Mine & Ours is a tiresome kids comedy that's mostly loud and mean-spirited.

July 23, 2008 Full Review Source: Screendaily

Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo follow wearily in the footsteps of Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball in this asinine remake.

The secret to the film's modest success can be summed up in five words: Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo.

I'd have a fit if I was ever again to hear Russo shout, 'Group hug!'

The film is directed in typically dull, overblown, idiotic fashion by Raja Gosnell, the man responsible for Big Momma's House and both of the Scooby-Doo movies.

This sloppy, gooey, indigestible holiday pudding is guaranteed to make you long for the gritty realism and hard-hitting domestic drama of The Brady Bunch and Eight Is Enough.

Raja Gosnell's direction follows the first rule of slapstick: If actor stuck with nothing to do, have them fall in vat of goo.

12 times better than "Cheaper by the Dozen" of the better family films in a long time

March 18, 2006

As full of corn as a wheatfield in Kansas, Yours Mine and Ours is simply not good enough as a movie for 6 %u2013 12 year olds, and not only is it boring for them, it is boring for their parents or aunts or grannies who take them along.

While it seems obvious that small children will delight to the relentlessly broad hijinks, the film is essentially a dead zone of comedic set-pieces and contrived situations.

This Cheaper-by-the-Dozening of the 1968 comedy is astoundingly unfunny.

Shadows on the Wall

A noxious and gratingly insincere feature-length sitcom that'll have you stampeding toward the closest bottle of aspirin. (Or arsenic.)

If Yours, Mine and Ours were nothing more than an 88-minute compilation of corporate logos, we'd all be a lot better off from an entertainment perspective.

A suburban nightmare of screaming, scheming children, Yours, Mine and Ours can make the stoutest adults abandon thoughts of becoming parents.

Just because cookie-cutter movie formulas are profitable doesn't mean they're defensible. Sooner or later, audiences will eventually demand something better.
