Variety
Generally pleasant family-friendly fare.

The A.V. Club
Pretty painless by kiddie movie standards.

The Hollywood Reporter
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.
50
Quaid and Russo outshine the script with their presence and chemistry alone.
50
The storyline is so familiar ("Cheaper by the Dozen," et al), the audience can practically call out scenes ahead of time.

Entertainment Weekly
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.
50
So snug, airtight and insulated from reality that the nice, well-scrubbed "Cheaper by the Dozen" seems almost rambunctious by comparison.
40
Synthetic, strained and noisy, Yours, Mine & Ours is a clinker that doesn't bear comparison with the original. Quaid, Russo and others deserve better.
38
Rip Torn, Linda Hunt and Jerry O'Connell mark time in minor supporting roles.
25
As an artsy but minimally bohemian type, Russo maintains her dignity, an extraordinary accomplishment.
