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

Another pointless remake with a cast who should know better.

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

[A] shrill family comedy.

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

Watching Dennis Quaid falling face down into vats of goop, getting kissed by a pig and talking baby talk in Yours, Mine and Ours is one of those experiences that causes you to question your faith in Hollywood's motives.

The characters are kept simple, completely one-dimensional.

Yes, this groaner retreads the ground of the middling-at-best 1968 movie of the same name.

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.

The movie slowly progresses in predictable fashion, with every misunderstanding (and final rapprochement) carefully choreographed.

So snug, airtight and insulated from reality that the nice, well-scrubbed Cheaper by the Dozen seems almost rambunctious by comparison.

The frenzy peters out, leaving youngsters as bored as their parents.

The remake seems to have been written and directed by people whose only experience with children is the long-distant memory of having been kids themselves so many years ago.

Synthetic, strained and noisy.

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 modern soft edges only accentuate the datedness of the premise.

Yours, Mine and Ours is indeed recycled garbage, but it's fairly harmless recycled garbage. It's certainly not enough to make you gag. Set your standards low, and the worst you should get is a hiccup or two.

Even those viewers attracted to the mayhem promised by Yours, Mine and Ours will have to admit what a mess has been made of this kids-in-a-shoe family comedy.

If you're determined to adore each heavy-handed gag, relish the story line's utter simplicity and bathe in the glow of its calculated warmth, you may tolerate Yours, Mine & Ours.

Yours, Mine & Ours is the movie equivalent of a box of generic macaroni and cheese: bland, easily digested, comforting, forgettable.

What matters is how stale and charmless this movie feels, how hard the actors all work in the service of mediocrity, and how shameless Hollywood is for feeding us thin porridge like this and then wondering why box office is down.

In watching Yours, Mine & Ours, you have to wonder what the director had against star Dennis Quaid.

I guess my Mommy thinks if we see movies like Yours, Mine & Ours we won't run around so much when we get home.

Yours, Mine & Ours isn't so much a movie as it is scene after scene of [Dennis] Quaid getting pelted with paint, food and other associated goo. But even as slapstick, it's a major snoozefest.
