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

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.

Yours, Mine and Ours is a lot like Fruit Stripe gum: it's sweet at first but quickly becomes bland and tiresome.

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.

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!

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

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

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.

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

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...

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).

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

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

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

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

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

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

This movie stresses the old cliché "opposites attract".

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

Thoroughly enjoyable family comedy.

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

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.

Obviously predictable.

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

Overall it's a nice film but a tad but boring.

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

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

How predictable is THAT!?!?!

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

Predictable American junk.

Don't waste your time.

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.

Funny Enjoyable Family Movie .

Just a fun time and entertaining for 90 minutes.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

Otherwise this movie was very entertaining.

The movie is predictable, and a bit campy.

Charming But Predictable .

A waste of time and film .

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.

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

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

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

Waste of TIme .

An enjoyable remake of the original Brady Bunch.

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

entertaining, charming and fun .

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

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

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.

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.

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

Waste of time .
