Crazy Credits

The opening credits are animated in the style of a series of children's crayon drawings. The Art Director credit is misspelled, comically and deliberately as "ART DER," scratched out, misspelled again as "ART DUR," scratched out again, the entire page is crumpled, and the credit finally appears, correct and not animated, on the following screen.

Another Lovely Lady Blends Her Family
11 August 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Unless someone persuades the 84 year old Doris Day to do an appearance in a Gloria Stuart like Titanic role, With Six You Get Eggroll will be her farewell big screen appearance. Not exactly the greatest film to go out on.

Anticipating The Brady Bunch by a year, With Six You Get Eggroll is a pleasant enough family comedy about another lovely lady only she's the one with three boys of her own. Doris is a widow with sons Jimmy Bracken, Richard Steele, and John Findlater who's getting a lot of static from her sister Pat Carroll about her social life or lack thereof.

Going through the Rolodex Brian Keith's name comes up. He's an old friend of Day's late husband who wouldn't you know it, is now a widower with a teenage daughter, Barbara Hershey. The inevitable romance blooms and they get married.

Getting the respective families adjusted to step relations is a whole other matter. If you've seen episodes of The Brady Bunch, Step By Step, and Life With Derek, I think you'll get the idea where the rest of this film is going.

Keith and Day look so comfortable together you do kind of wonder what their respective late spouses were like. Look for George Carlin to make his big screen debut as an obnoxious fast food stand owner and Vic Tayback as the poultry truck driver whose repeated run-ins with both sides of the family brings them finally together.

And in that rather anarchistic climax note the presence of Jamie Farr and William Christopher as a pair of hippies who help the course of true love.

With Six You Get Eggroll is an average screen comedy, but with all the blended family TV shows that have come and gone since, it's nothing no one hasn't seen before.
