Blustery basketball coach and ditsy wife adopt children from many different races. Hilarity ensues.
12 October 2006 | by mhedrick7470See all my reviews

This move was entertaining solely for its camp value and rampant political incorrectness. The writing is lazy, sloppy and predictable. As with many movies featuring large casts, the supporting players are reduced to a few quirks which pass for character development. My favorite part of the movie is the way that each and every character (including the kids) say "goddamnit" several times each. Having said all that, Joseph Baloney is always good at playing a blustery character, and Barbara Harris' character is so loony, I would have killed her within the first ten minutes of the movie. The script reads more like a terrible 1970's sitcom than a feature film, with its attempts at "relevance", including a prospective black suitor for the oldest daughter, played with gusto by veteran TV actress Lisa Gerritsen (Mary Tyler Moore Show, Phyllis, My World and Welcome to It). A colossal misunderstanding in the vein of "Three's Company" shows the movies true colors. If you are looking for some so-bad-it's-good 1970's crap, you can't go too far wrong in watching this. We saw it on the FLIX cable channel. Goddamnit!
