dumb, predictable movie with horrid kids
Verified purchase
I have no problem with silly "opposites attract" cliches and hijinks that could ensue trying to blend two families with 18 kids! Lots of funny misunderstandings and problems and disasters could occur naturally. But these kids are cruel and absolutely unlikable. You're telling me that Mr Shipshape Admiral wouldn't teach his kids to "do the right thing" and Miss Liberal Artsy-Fartsy LoveMama wouldn't teach her kids empathy and kindness?

No, the oldest boy who wants to be class president and get into an ivy league college and seems totally straight arrow is going to play mean tricks, and the oldest girl is going to deliberately steal the guy her new sister likes just to be cruel? The kids are going to totally wreck the house and feel no remorse? Then they are going to deliberately try to ruin their parents' marriage with no care or concern for the pain they will cause parents they supposedly love?

I can overlook the absurdity of two people with so many kids not even talking about where they will live or how they will discipline the kids or what they will do to help the kids get along before they suddenly marry...but then that would be the first thing they'd discuss after the wedding, right? Those are important issues likely to need some problem-solving and attention. "I'm sorry, Honey, I just can't live with a pig in the house. Can we build him a place in the backyard?" "Okay, but I can't accept spanking. We need to talk out problems with the kids." "Okay, well I need some rules and schedules..." and so on.

Even knowing the kids would learn to like each other in the course of the movie and start standing up for one another, their behavior in the beggining was so mean and hateful and bratty that I found them all unlikable characters. The humor just wasn't funny, either. Okay, the ridiculous one scene with the chain of kids dangling out the window was kinda funny...and it had nothing to do with being cruel or trying to hurt someone else for spite...the whole movie could have been honest misunderstandings and disasters that could happen in a houseful of kids of all ages. Instead, it was unbelievable, predictable, and mean. Tossing a cherry on top of a pile of cow droppings doesn't make the droppings suddenly sweet and delicious.

This movie has a few moments that could have been good if they weren't sitting on top of all the rest of it.

Ridiculous, Sappy, Corny. I Totally Loved It!

This movie certainly was never going to win any awards, and it was full of silly gags. And even the ex machina had ex machina. But somehow it was just really enjoyable to watch. It kind of reminds me of that Alec Baldwin line from Pearl Harbor when he tells Ben Affleck: "That's bull$*** McCawley! But it's very, very good bull$***."

"Guys! It'll be fun... Having ten new brothers and sisters." - Frank
Verified purchase
Sometimes a good family movie steals the show at the time and is necessary, this one fits the bill. An Admiral at the Coast Guard Academy, Frank Beardsley (Dennis Quaid) is raising his troops, or eight children, alone, they are supposed to fall in like most soldiers. From youngest to elder, these children must abide by rules, salute, and 'look alive'. They all are a loved and well-oiled machine. Frank meets up with his high school sweetheart, Helen North (Rene Russo) at a formal function and goes straight back to being in love with her again. She is raising her brood of ten children alone too and is a complete opposite of Frank. Her children are encouraged to be artistic and create what they want to with their lives. Helen is a life-loving and free-spirited handbag designer. The two adults get married right after their evening together and introduce two parents, eighteen children and a few different animals to a household full of love, but mainly chaos as the kids decide to revolt. An exaggerated remake of the nineteen sixty-eight Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda film with the same premise. Watch this if you are purely in the mood for some fun and this is family safe which still has its share of kid appeal too. A good family picture to feel good about, oh, and the Piggy steals the show!

Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda's Writers, They Ain't

The movie shown when it focused on the children of the father. No explanation of how the mother ended up with children of different backgrounds. . . so it tried to cover too much ground without any foundation. Too formulaic, tried to be funny (not) and didn't follow the original story close enough. I read the original story, which was charming. This movie was NOT charming. Dennis Quaid and his twins were the stars. . . otherwise big waste of time.

Chaotic, but cute
Verified purchase
Ever wondered what all out chaos looks like? Look no further. This family of 20, yup 18 kids total, is a surefire recipe for madness, and it is loud! Imagine 18 fighting, yelling, screaming, crying kids battling it out over everything from bathroom privileges to boys they'd like to date. I feel sorry for the screenwriter who had the job of trying to make each one of the kids memorable and unique. Quaid and Russo are amazing as always, and the movie has its charm, especially the renovated light house, but man, you gotta love chaos and unbelievable story lines to be able to stomach this one.

love it!
Verified purchase
I read a really scathing review about this movie and I'm kinda in shock. It is not that hard to believe that kids would play tricks to separate the parents. And true to most children brought up with a some moral character, guilt and remorse soon follow as they actually learn to like each other, of course because they 'worked together' for a common cause.

Anyway, it's a breath of fresh air to watch a movie that is clean and funny, and yes, all while knowing the basic plot and outcome. Enjoy!
