    Generally pleasant family-friendly fare.
  2. 60
    Pretty painless by kiddie movie standards.
  3. Unable to decide whether it wants to be a rambunctious family comedy or a tender romantic comedy, the Dennis Quaid-Rene Russo vehicle strains to be both and ends up falling short of both marks.
  4. Quaid and Russo outshine the script with their presence and chemistry alone.
  5. The storyline is so familiar ("Cheaper by the Dozen," et al), the audience can practically call out scenes ahead of time.
  6. The movie, directed with a gym teacher's whistle by "Scooby-Doo's" Raja Gosnell, is a contempo soft-focus remake of the 1968 original starring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda.
  7. So snug, airtight and insulated from reality that the nice, well-scrubbed "Cheaper by the Dozen" seems almost rambunctious by comparison.

    The movie equivalent of a box of generic macaroni and cheese: bland, easily digested, comforting, forgettable.
  9. 50
    The remake seems to have been written and directed by people whose only experience with children is the long-distant memory of having been kids themselves so many years ago.
  10. 50
    Likable (if not especially funny).
  11. The best thing that can be said about this Yours, Mine and Ours is that it's inoffensive.
  12. Synthetic, strained and noisy, Yours, Mine & Ours is a clinker that doesn't bear comparison with the original. Quaid, Russo and others deserve better.

    Amazing – a movie that somehow manages to be both irritatingly familiar and instantly forgettable.
  14. Even as slapstick, it's a major snoozefest.
  15. Rip Torn, Linda Hunt and Jerry O'Connell mark time in minor supporting roles.
  16. The humor is supposed to stem from the clash of kids who have been raised so differently and of partners with opposing views of child care. But there are just so many jokes you can make about who gets to use the bathroom when.

    There's not a moment in this story arc that is not predictable.
  18. 30
    This wretched remake was helmed by Raja Gosnell, perpetrator of the live-action "Scooby-Doo" movies. I'm partial to Quaid and Russo, but there are limits.
  19. 30
    Witless, terminally irritating remake.
  20. The kind of film that will be suitable for all-ages entertainment once the family runs out of conversation after devouring all the turkey, but it's unlikely to expand its audience beyond these captives.

    As an artsy but minimally bohemian type, Russo maintains her dignity, an extraordinary accomplishment.

    I saw this movie while babysitting two kids. One of them is 5 and the other is 10. They both hated it. My opinion is much lower than theirs.I saw this movie while babysitting two kids. One of them is 5 and the other is 10. They both hated it. My opinion is much lower than theirs. First off, the acting is...well, dammit, it's awful! The child actors are extremely annoying and I hoped at least one of them caught the Swine Flu or something (not a good thing to wish on anybody) The plot is predictable, boring, and incredibly dull. The screenplay is...like the acting, choke worthy. The direction...basically everything, is horrible. Never before has a movie gotten a 1 from me. This film sucks. Don't see it. Please. I beg you!
