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.

Maybe Doris Day wasn't all bad...
19 January 2006 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

My mom always tells me about how idiotically bad Doris Day's movies were: Day always played wholesome women who never had sex. I guess that Day figured that her final film appearance should be something more realistic. She plays widow Abby McClure, who hooks up with widower Jake Iverson (Brian Keith), and they get really close.

"With Six You Get Eggroll" - so called because of a scene in a Chinese restaurant - seems like a precursor to "The Brady Bunch" (accentuated by the presence of Allan Melvin, who played Alice's hubby Sam in the latter). It's not a great movie by any stretch, but it is pretty humorous in some scenes - namely the "yellow" scene. Also starring are Barbara Hershey, George Carlin, Vic Tayback, and Alice Ghostley (aka Esmerelda on "Bewitched").
