ok sort of a movieBy a customer from Lichfield, England , 03 Feb 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]I didn't like this movie because this film is outdated now. you wouldn't smack your kids nowadays. I pefer the remake of this movie. you don't see much of the kids in this unlike the remake. it was ok but it wasn't my cup of tea. funny in some parts but boring. rent the remake of this movie if you want a laugh.
Perfectly okay, in a dull sort of wayBy Savage (632 reviews) from London, England , 17 Jan 2008Writer-director Melville Shavelson had already made a film called 'Room for one more', about a couple adopting any number of babies, and he would later remake it as 'Mixed blessings'. In between came this film about a couple getting married, despite (or because of) the fact that, between them, they have eighteen kids. You could say that Mr Shavelson had a thing about directing children.
This one is helped immensely by the expert playing of Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball as mom and pop, both relaxed in their roles and running through all the expected gags. It's a little elephantine at 107 minutes, especially given that nothing much happens (it's never in any doubt that there will be a happily ever after, since the whole picture is narrated by Fonda and Ball), and there's a lack of any real invention, but for those looking for something like a hangover film - easy on the eye and the nerves - you could do worse.

Classic Sunday Afternoon FilmBy KChawgo (19 reviews) from Kentish Town , 20 Sep 2006Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda star in this film about a man with ten children meeting and marrying a woman with eight children. The film has heart and warmth and is very much of its era. A very young Tim Matheson (vice president on West Wing) is one of the sons. The film is pretty much a paint by numbers and there really are no suprises and twists that you can not see coming. Lucille Ball has a couple of comedic moments a la The Lucy Show and Henry Fonda gets to once again don the navy uniform. This will not rock anyone's world but the performances are extremely good and the widescreen presentation is good, as it is the first time I seen the whole family on screen at one time. I maybe mistaken, but I think this was the blueprint for the Brady Bunch which would air a couple of years after this release. If you are looking for a good ole fashion family picture, then look no further. This is far better than the remake this year 2006. The remake makes this look like a masterpiece.
