Trivia:
Loosely based on the book 'Who Gets the Drumstick?' Similar to The Sound of Music (1965), there were a lot of changes made for the movie whereas in the actual book and real life, the children had a better liking to each other right away. Also, Frank and Helen actually had two children together.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Frank decides to buy Helen a gift to commemorate their first and last date she picks a stature of Kwan Yin. The clerk says the Kwan Yin means "joyous symbol of fertility" (at 34:32 on the DVD). Kwan Yin actually means "Observing the Sounds of the World" and is primarily considered the Goddess of Mercy, Love and Compassion. Her fertility aspects are minor and would not be mentioned by a Chinese person.See more »

...And Baby Makes... 21?, 21 March 2006
Author: nycritic

YOURS, MINE, AND OURS reunites Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda, who had worked together in the 1942 B-film THE BIG STREET, the former a heavy-handed drama making a contrast to this lightweight comedy. Reminiscent of CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, the premise -- a man and woman, both with a huge family, meet, fall in love, and marry -- would be unbelievable if it weren't true.

Based on the autobiographical novel by Helen Eileen Beardsley, YOURS, MINES, AND OURS is a blueprint of sorts of future television shows "The Brady Bunch" and "Eight is Enough" but amps it up to eleven. While on those shows we never got to see just how a real household was handled (being situation programs, their stories were resolved in minimal time), here we get glimpses of what happens at dinnertime, or how groceries get done, and it's those trivial things that keep the charming story in check instead of throwing it into la-la land. Both Fonda and Ball are well-matched and have funny scenes together despite that both actors were a little too old for their characters, but it's not even a minor contrivance. Very enjoyable, witty, sunny: just what this kind of movie should be.
