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.

Could have been worse

While nobody will ever confuse this movie with Citizen Kane, it is not a total waste of two hours. This is a typical "his kids vs. her kids" movie, except unlike the Brady Bunch, it tries to deal with some modern issues facing blended families, like when the father's second-oldest son and the mother's oldest daughter are discovered kissing on the patio. At least, being on the ABC Family Channel, this situation is not handled as crudely as it might have been on a different channel. The closest this movie comes to being risqué is at the beginning of the movie, when the mom wakes up to find her youngest daughter sleeping on the pillow next to her and asks "Where did you come from?" "Your uterus," replies the tot.
