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

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

The kids are undeniably cute, and you'd be a fool to underestimate the value of seasoned pros Quaid and Russo.

Harmless, just okay and perfect for that post-turkey theater outing with the whole clan.

It has a certain hapless charm, and while too much of its humor relies on Dennis Quaid falling face-first into puddles of things, it also has some clever riffs on the Red state/Blue state rivalry that exists within the film's central household.

Generally pleasant family-friendly fare.

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.

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

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.

Another pointless remake with a cast who should know better.

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.

A movie that somehow manages to be both irritatingly familiar and instantly forgettable.

You know you're in trouble when even the trailer doesn't contain any laughs [and this] is a disaster from beginning to end ...

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.

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