Goofs

In the scene in the nightclub, there's a mismatched cut of Doris. In a three-shot, she has her chin in her hand. When we cut immediately to a close-up, her hands are clasped together in front of her. See more »

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.

Doris Day vs. Lucille Ball: I vote Doris!
9 February 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

This fun family film came out just a few months after Henry Fonda and Lucy's "Yours, Mine and Ours". As a youngster, I liked the latter movie much better because it was FULL of kids (18 to be exact). Nowadays, that picture gives me a headache and I avoid it at all costs. "Eggroll" creates the same step-family tension and only utilizes 4 children. What a bargain! Besides that, Doris Day wafts through this sitcom like a spring daisy. She was probably in her mid-40s here (and in her last movie to date), but she's fresh and funny throughout. I loved it when she spies Brian Keith in a go-go club with "a young chick" (his daughter) and says to sister Pat Carroll, "Why take a bus when you can fly?" There are big laughs and some thoughtful scenes and I enjoyed them--until the final 15 minutes when the picture goes to hell in a handbasket. Into this semi-realistic brew of changing houses and learning to love comes hippies, bikers, a chicken-truck driver, and Brian Keith in his boxer shorts. It's a ridiculous turn of events, and almost mitigates the sweet nature of the main characters. Nothing can derail Doris, though: she's so grounded in reality that you buy every emotion, every double-take, every line of dialogue. She's one of Hollywood's most underrated actresses. It may be "With Six You Get Eggroll", but Day plays the material like it's "Love Me Or Leave Me". **1/2 from ****
