Stocked with enough Nickelodeon-owned kid stars to qualify as the public result of an intensive, mandatory summer acting camp.

Culture clash, the military organizer versus Ms. 'Free to be you and me,' makes for some cute bits, most of them slapstick. There just aren't enough of them.

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

There's not a moment in this story arc that is not predictable.

This one is straight off the sit-com conveyer belt, all pratfalls and spit-takes.

Eighteen kids. Two parents. One sassy nanny and a potbellied pig. And not a single laugh among them.

Only the youngest will find this mess amusing.

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

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.

It's terrible.

Within the movie's daffy unreality, this family of 20 manages to supply some moments that feel recognizably human.

There is a time to every purpose under heaven, but let us hope this particular one doesn't last too long. Turn, turn, turn.

The film is a humongous, ice cold, fanged moneymaking machine brought to life by Hollywood suits who were angry that they passed on remaking Cheaper by the Dozen years back.

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.

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.

Any potential has been covered over in a thick layer of disgusting green slime and unmistakable Nickelodeon orange paint.

... it loses a good deal of humour along with its social relevance.

It throws in a few "cute" animals, such as a burping pig, just in case the kids don't measure up.

We needed the oversized and relentlessly insipid family comedy Yours, Mine & Ours much like a terrorist needs tips on how to scare finicky preschoolers.

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.

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