Young widow Carrie Lewellyn has a successful cookies business and four kids: Andrew, Moira, little Nathan and little Daisy. Widower Jim Barber, a furniture maker, also has four: Andrew B, Jef, Lily and Sandy (dating seriously with Rusty), plus a dog, Java. When the two parents, who had been dating for nearly a year, decide rather impulsively to get married on a trip to Las Vegas in a casino's chapel when challenged on stage, without the kids who find out reading the news in the National Interrogator, that results in a chaotically large reconstituted family. The first meeting of all ten is a picnic on neutral grounds, and a disaster at first sight: Andrew L. -who has a dog allergy- and Sandy know and hate each-other. The youngest kids soon decide keeping their parents close still is best- the only place the happy couple can be alone is with the dog in the garage. Andrew B and Moira surprise their parents by kissing each-other. The possibilities for conflicts are endless, and they can ... Written by KGF Vissers

A really bad message to parents and kids.
21 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually comment only on movies that I like, figuring "everyone to his/her own taste," but here I want to make an exception. The premise of this movie, which somehow seems to get lost in the shuffle, is that these two self-centered adults have a perfect right to go off to Las Vegas, get drunk, get married, and inflict incalculable suffering upon their respective broods of children. Even allowing for the culturally sanctioned inebriation, they have neither the courage nor the sense of responsibility to wake up the next morning and undo what they have set in motion. After all, "love" is all that's important, isn't it? To hell with everybody else. Whether or not things "work out in the end" is really not the point; in fact it's quite irrelevant. The point is that disrespect for others, especially if they are young persons, and especially if they are in a position of dependency, is made light of and thereby reinforced by this movie. There are far more innocuous behaviors these "parents" could have performed that would have brought down an army of social workers on their heads in a heartbeat.
