Harmless dreck that is only memorable for being the last feature film appearance of Doris Day and the first for a very young Barbara Hershey.  Day once again plays a plucky widow, this time meeting widower  and falling in love. Before you can Yours, Mine and Ours, they’ve put together her three sons and his daughter (Hershey) and made one big, bickering family with nowhere to go: both their houses are too small to house them all so they alternate back and forth and give themselves no end of headaches. Day’s adorable personality is at its finest but the material is really dull; it’s the kind of Brady Bunch crap that could barely have worked at the time and now seems hopelessly dated.  livens things up a bit as Day’s hilarious sister, while  and future television stars  and make small appearances.
