YOURS, MINE AND OURS (2005) ** Listless and arbitrary remake of the 1960s farce about two large families suddenly becoming one humongous one when former high school sweethearts Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo are reunited at their 20th class reunion and find themselves instantly getting married after rekindling their spark with the usual predictable results of 'hilarity ensuing' - 18 kids and miscellaneous animals (including a pig!

This movie stresses the old cliché "opposites attract".

How predictable is THAT!?!?!

"Scooby Doo" director Raja Gosnell keeps things snappy, so that the story doesn't sink in its own sap.

The whole movie is so predictable on auto pilot and I didn't care so much about the individual characters.

entertaining, charming and fun .

Yours, Mine and Ours is a funny enjoyable family movie, that is much better than the critics' reviews.

The plot of the film is rather tiresome (a sort of cross between 'Cheaper by the Dozen' and 'The Brady Bunch') and it is always easy to see where the film is heading.

He is your typical bland director and he doesn't have much imagination.

The movie is predictable and probably resembles Cheaper By the Dozen more than anything with a little Parent Trap thrown in.

According to Roger Ebert's 2005 review, he thought a lot of the movie was contrived.

Predictable American junk.

Enjoyable But Predictable: A Remake And Echoes Of Cheaper By The Dozen .

For a while, I thought this was not going to be anything special, but all the expected things that could, and do, happen, make this entertaining.

The film is a family comedy, so the plot is predictable and straightforward.

Don't waste your time.

I don't mean to be mean to American's, I'm just saying that this movie is such a predictable movie.

Even when her kids ADMIT that they were actively trying to split her and her husband up, the best she can manage is a dull whisper of shock (with of course no punishment for the kids).

as far as comedies goes it get's the job done, but some parts of the movie just dragged, and u were waiting for the preverbial shoe to drop.

even some of the lines, but I believe the movie as a whole was very entertaining.

What I find the stupidest part of the movie, and what really made it a waste of my time is that these kids supposedly don't like each other.

Frank and Helen used to be lovers during their hight-school years and on the edge to get married.

The movie Yours, Mine and Ours was a terrible movie and a waste of my time to watch.

Nothing against Dennis Quaid or Rene Russo, but they certainly were in way over their heads, not because they had to contend with 18 snotty brats, but rather because of this tedious and contrived script adaptation that strangles a once amusing story.

Thoroughly enjoyable family comedy.

Among these "actors," there is every type of cliché; a Boy Scout, a military cadet, a cheer- leader, a punk rocker, a grunge singer, a couple of sets of twins, two precocious little boys, and other assorted goofballs.

For being a daring, well executed and thoroughly enjoyable family fun, I give it 10 stars.

I will say as predictable and clearly mapped out as the film is the ending is still warm and fuzzy and will make you smile...

I want to waste 2hrs of their life like mine was.

They each act their roles with comedic flair and it's enjoyable to watch them feud as all siblings do and eventually scheme to break up their parents.

Rene Russo plays his wife and she was okay but a little bland.

Hardly anyone understands that family movies are for families, they're not meant to be nasty to watch, it should be enjoyable for everyone.

Most of them were either bland or they played annoying characters.

How can anyone stay sane when there are eighteen kids running around, hyper speed for ninety tedious minutes?

Funny Enjoyable Family Movie .

The movie is predictable, and a bit campy.

A waste of time and film .

An enjoyable remake of the original Brady Bunch.

All in all, if you are really bored and want to watch something then this movie is for you...

I would say it is a fun family movie, but I am afraid people would get bored.

The choices of set and setting are fun and intriguing, adding surprise and significant interest to the flick.

Obviously predictable.

Though in parts pretty predictable, it was perfectly enjoyable to watch, the acting was pretty good in most parts although there seemed to be no real electricity between Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo.

The plot is so predictable, the actors are horrible, and I cringed while counting the minutes.

Waste of TIme .

A lot of the slapstick is over the top, but it is an entertaining 90 minutes with a message that will never grow old.

Easily one of the 10 worst movies of the year, Yours, Mine, and Ours should be more aptly titled Suck, Suck, and Suck.

The acting was mundane at best and the cast couldn't have had a more difficult time mulling around with their lines and portrayals as this feature vaguely resembled the 1968 film, and actually more closely resembled a pack of meandering zombies, bumping into each other as they rambled on through this tiresome movie.

Otherwise this movie was very entertaining.

Overall, this film is funny but it's predictable.

Waste of time .

Charming But Predictable .

Just a fun time and entertaining for 90 minutes.

But as a 30-somthing, I must admit, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

This remake has every stupid cliché and goes overboard in trying to make the organized father look like an idiot time and time again.

No comedy; just tired, overused old jokes, and monotonously boring.

A loud, overly cliché, annoying state of affairs that has Dennis Quaid being hit off a boat, in the head, or into a can of paint one too many times to be passable.

Rene Russo is a fine Helen North and plays her part well but she's dull and unintersting and of courses cannot live up to the actress who originated the role - Lucille Ball herself.
