Goofs

As Frank and Helen are checking out their groceries at the commissary, the checked items are shown several times, and although the clerk appears to be moving them toward the person boxing the groceries, the items shown are the same in each shot. Also, any family with 18 children would buy milk in gallons, not in quarts (they purchase about 20 quarts). See more »

This classic comedy features Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda reunited. Ball plays a widow with 8 children while Fonda plays a widower with 10 children. The two get married and try to unite the families as one. With 20 different personalities in one home, things get more than a little tough. There is one scene where one of Fonda's children spikes Lucille Ball's drink. She gets drunk and makes a fool of herself, much to the delight of the kids. I love that scene. Her runny makeup and slurring words are just hilarious! This movie has recently been the victim of a terrible remake starring Dennis Quade. If you found that entertaining in any way, you will love the original. It is a wonderful, funny movie that is safe for all ages. Enjoy!
