Navy nurse Helen North (Lucille Ball) and Naval officer Frank Beardsley (Henry Fonda) are both widowed, and when they meet discover that this is not the only thing they have in common. Both have large families - she has eight children, he ten - and when they fall in love and decide to wed this causes the first problems. The North and Beardsley offspring are extremely resentful of each other, and set out to do whatever they can to sabotage their parents' imminent union.

Format: DVD
My parents went to see this movie on their first date and soon after blended two large families together, much in the same manner as the Beardsleys and Norths. I am extremely grateful to the tellers of this story for inspiring my parents to marry, thus giving me the best mother in the world.
Though this is a comedy, and bits of it are truly hilarious, it is not overdone and focuses well on important family issues. Lucille Ball is very much not Lucy in this film, and is the perfect blend of serious and funny. Many of the younger actors are very recognizable despite their youth including Tim Matheson and Tracy Nelson who, due to her smile and other facial features, is easy to spot as the approximately three-year-old Jermaine.
The dual narration, assembly line lunch making, industrial laundry chores, military-like logistics for bathroom sharing, and grocery shopping for an apparent army are all interestingly staged. The movie also includes a nice variety of settings including the crowded house, bar, aircraft carrier, clinic, navel base, school, commissary, and hospital.
This is an uplifting family story and a wonderful Christmastime feel-good movie, though it is fun to watch all year round.

Format: DVD
Helen North (Lucille Ball) is the recently widowed mother of eight children; Frank Beardsley (Henry Fonda) lost his wife and year ago and has ten kids. They meet when Frank comes in to the Air Force Base dispensary where Helen works as a nurse and start dating. They're both afraid to tell the other about their big families, for fear it will scare them off, but of course, it doesn't. The couple marries and settles into a big house with their eighteen children and soon there's one more on the way. Through all the ups and downs of blending two families, the parents are models of love, kindness, and respect.

This sounds like a fairy tale, but it's based on a true story, Helen North Beardsley's memoir, "Who Gets the Drumstick?" Fonda makes a handsome and wise dad and while Ball is stuck with some silly slapstick, she still comes off as a sincere and doting wife and mother. It's a wholesome, even inspiring family comedy that can be enjoyed by all ages. Heartily recommended.

Format: VHS Tape
YOURS, MINE AND OURS is a wacky comedy about the struggles of a second marriage for both a widow and a widower who together have a combined total of eighteen children. The new family struggles mightily to become a unified whole which is finally achieved with the arrival of a new baby to whom everybody is related. This film serves as a fine example of how two great actors can lift a basically good movie to unexpected heights with outstanding performances. Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda are certainly well cast. Among the many fine child actors in the cast Tim Matheson manages to stand out.
The film's credibility is enhanced by the fact that it is based on a true story. The real life heroine, Helen Beardsley, died three years ago in California at age seventy of Parkinson's disease.

I had been longing to see this film again for a good many years. And, at last, I have been able to get hold of it. Highly recommended for those who want to laugh their hearts out in an absolutely respectful manner. The film does not judge, nor pokes fun at anyone in an offensive way. They do not make films like this anymore. Do buy it and enjoy it. It packs loads of pure, unadulterated, intelligent, and uproarious fun.

Add together Henry Fonda's manly good looks and Lucille Ball's dizzy femininity and you get a mixture of fun and reality that keeps you watching!
Both widowed,they meet up and eventually date only to find they have 18 kids between them.
The scene in a crowded club where both are trying to avoid the inevitable disclosure that they have an enormous family is very very funny ,and the film is heartwarming.
I enjoyed it very much indeed.

Format: DVD
This is a sixties style American movie about two widowed people, each with a large family, who fall in love and decide – after much indecision – to get married. Trying to blend the two families together (eighteen children in all, aged eighteen down to about two) produces significant difficulties.

There’s some humour, and some touching moments, with a fairly predictable resolution. Nothing too deep, so it makes a pleasant evening’s viewing for a couple or family, without any great mental strain.
