The Brady Bunch had six, Cheaper By the Dozen had 12 and now, Yours, Mine & Ours brings us a whopping 18 kids! Read on for the review of this remake of the 1968 film of the same name.
Yours, Mine & Ours - One House, 20 Peeps
Frank Beardsley (Dennis Quaid) is a Coast Guard Admiral with eight children; Helen North (Rene Russo) is a free-spirited handbag designer with 10 kids. They're both single parents, but raise their kids in totally different ways - Frank runs a tight ship at home by using military-style discipline, while Helen gives her brood enough freedom to express themselves. When Frank and Helen, who were high school sweethearts, run into each other at their high school reunion, they fall back in love, elope and move their families in under one roof! But, they soon realize that just like Rome, a happy home can't be built in a day.
Yours, Mine & Ours - Is Bigger Really Better?
For those of ya who don't know, Yours, Mine & Ours is pretty similar to Cheaper By the Dozen, which starred Hilary Duff. The only difference is that Cheaper By the Dozen is the story of one huge household, while Yours, Mine & Ours is about two giant families coming together to form a super-sized combo! Cutie Sean Faris stars as the eldest son of the Beardsley clan and Danielle Panabaker is the eldest North daughter, who team up to sabotage their parent's chances for a happily-ever-after ending. Unfortunately, the pranks are just plain gross, like slipping on vomit and falling face-first into a pit of green goo.
