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

    There's not a moment in this story arc that is not predictable.

    Chicago Tribune Robert K. Elder

    Even as slapstick, it's a major snoozefest.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    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.

    The Hollywood Reporter Michael Rechtshaffen

    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.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 8+

Blended family tale remake is mediocre.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie includes crude humor, lots of drinking, and some questionable humor around homosexual stereotypes. There's a scene where beer kegs arrive at a teen party, adults drink liquor on dates and the housekeeper pours herself a martini when she's supposed to be babysitting. Kids engineer elaborate situations to break up their parents' marriage, creating domestic chaos (food, paint, toys, furniture, and pets -- here including a pig -- all in an uproar). Parents kiss and embrace; an adolescent girl kisses a boy at school, discovered by her new, and newly jealous, stepsister. One kid vomits while seasick on a boat. Language is mild, but includes homophobic jokes.

  • Families can talk about real blended families and what they think the true challenges are.

  • language false0
