YOURS, MINE AND OURS (2005) GO!, 8.30PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Re­lent­lessly harm­less re­make of the old Lu­cille Ball/Henry Fonda ve­hi­cle. High-school flames Frank (Dennis Quaid) and Helen (Rene Russo) rekin­dle their love years later and marry, only to find that it leaves them with a com­bined to­tal of 18 kids to care for. Quaid’s mil­i­tary ap­proach to par­ent­ing clashes with Russo’s laid-back style and the kids are hell­bent on sab­o­tag­ing their par­ents’ re­la­tion­ship. The two stars’ low-key charm doesn’t pro­vide much dis­trac­tion from the slap­stick chaos that makes up most of this for­mu­laic out­ing, al­though it’s far more tol­er­a­ble than the Cheaperby the­Do­zen movies. ★★★
