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.

The movie equivalent of a box of generic macaroni and cheese: bland, easily digested, comforting, forgettable.

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.

The remake seems to have been written and directed by people whose only experience with children is the long-distant memory of having been kids themselves so many years ago.

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

New York Daily News
The humor is supposed to stem from the clash of kids who have been raised so differently and of partners with opposing views of child care. But there are just so many jokes you can make about who gets to use the bathroom when.

Chicago Tribune
Even as slapstick, it's a major snoozefest.

A turkey.

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

Philadelphia Inquirer
A forced-march comedy.
