Forget the SUV, this family needs a school bus. Widow Helen North marries widower Frank Beardsley, a union that results in a grand total of 18 children. Household chaos ensues as they all learn to share the same space.

I really enjoyed this film. Reminded me a lot of Divorce American Style in the way it was shot and the style of humor, but where that one had a somewhat bitter core, this one is quite the opposite. Ball is perhaps her best here outside of her TV work. Fonda is as usual, par excellence.
I really loved this film! It had comedy, family relations, arguments, huge crowd of people trying to co-oporate with the other family and having two adults to try and control all of these children in one house! Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball that was a great final onscreen couple film since "The Big Street"! :)
