      While the cast of the 2005 film “Yours, Mine & Ours” is respectable and some of my favorite actors are involved in it, the film itself did not do their skills much justice and was a flop. I found the film to be a re-make almost of other films that have come before it and lacked originality and engagement. Instead, I was hoping that the movie would be over soon so I wouldn’t have to watch much more of it. Now, this film is a remake from the original “Yours, Mine & Ours” that came out in 1968, and while I’m not sure how well the first movie was,

      this remake is a dud.

      This film is rated PG, with only some mild crude humor, it is really a film for children to enjoy, but does not only limit the audience to that age group. Dennis Quaid plays Frank Beardsley, who is an admirable and also widowed with eight children. He runs a tight shift at his house, making sure that his children fall in line and follow orders. Rene Russo plays Helen, who was Franks high school sweetheart and also has ten kids of her own. She is free spirited and allows her children to express themselves freely. So the catastrophe that becomes their lives when they decide ...

      • to marry and unite their households is profound. They’re older children don’t like the arrangement, or each other for that matter, and make plans to break up their parents. In the beginning, Frank and Helen stick it out because they have found love again after so many years of being a single parent and want to give their relationship a shot. When the kids finally come up with a plan that works in getting their parents angry and separated, they decide that it’s not what they want anymore and want to get them back together because now they like one another.

        The film had no real sense of direction,

        it was hopeful in the beginning where Frank and Helen found love in each other after so many years, but it ended when they’re children began acting barbaric and tried to split them up. The real point of the story was that Frank and Helen find love, they’re kids aren’t happy with it so they break them up, the kids are happy when they are split up and want them to be back together, Frank and Helen get back together and all is well. It was like the film was trying to be the next “Cheaper By the Dozen” or something, and didn’t at all make for an enjoyable movie night.
