Product Description

In WITH SIX YOU GET EGGROLL, Abby McClure, a widow with three sons, and Jake Iverson, a widower with a teen-age daughter, begin dating and eventually decide to get married. But they're not prepared for the hostile reactions from their children, who are not very excited about the new union between the two families.

Amazon.com

After her long and wholesome run as America's Sweetheart, Doris Day quit movies with this well-scrubbed picture. With Six You Get Eggroll--oof, what a title--caught the wave of blended-family comedies, coming just after Yours, Mine and Ours and just before TV's The Brady Bunch. Doris has three sons, and new beau Brian Keith has an 18-year-old daughter (the still-baby-faced Barbara Hershey). It's family-friendly sitcom stuff, with both Day and Keith doing their comfortable, patented thing; when the two of them are onscreen together it's like watching a couple of old sweaters mate. This one is straight formula for fans only, although connoisseurs of camp will enjoy the whiff of Aquarius in the otherwise square proceedings (it was 1968, after all) when Doris goes to a nightclub where the Grass Roots are playing. There's also a hippie gang (featuring Jamie Farr and William Christopher, before M*A*S*H) with ponchos and love beads. The times they were a-changin', and kudos to Day for bowing out gracefully. --Robert Horton

4.0 out of 5 stars This "Eggroll" is Stuffed with Laughs! October 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
"With Six You get Eggroll" bowed in the nation's theatres in August of 1968. It quickly became a popular success at the box-office thanks, in large part, to the enduring popularity of the film's star, Doris Day. Although some critics compared it, unfairly, to another comedy success, "Yours Mine, and Ours", "Eggroll" can more than stand on it's own merits.
The story about a widow with three children who falls in love with a widower with one daughter, is not new or original. However, thanks to a charming script, smooth direction by Howard Morris and the cast headed by Day and Brian Keith, who have a great onscreen chemistry, it's a delight. By the film's conclusion, audiences have shed a few tears and had more than a few laughs.
Doris Day plays the 40ish widow with charm, sex appeal, and a great deal of warmth. She is completely convincing and it's in her small touches that she especially proves her mettle as one of the most natural screen actresses ever. Keith is manly and real, and the supporting cast which includes Pat Carroll, Alice Ghostley, George Carlin, Barbara Hershey, Jamie Farr, and the popular rock group, The Grass Roots, lend credible support.
While the film, the first production of the CBS film wing, may betray it's television roots, seeming at times like a pilot for a sitcom, it is ultimately a fine working of a winning formula.
This was Day's cinema swan song, after two decades of enormous popularity, and it's a film that none of the participants need feel anything but pride in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doris's great farewell film performance May 2, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
"With Six You Get Eggroll" marks rather sadly the farewell performance of Doris Day before she ventured into television and while this film is not as well known as some of her classic films like "Pillow Talk" or "Lover Come Back" really she could not have chosen a better film vechicle for her last performance.
"Eggroll" is a delightful , fun film which is often unfairly labelled solely as a "Family Film" and not much else. Certainly it is that, but there is also alot for the adults to enjoy as well. It is one of my favourite Doris Day performances and she does a wonderful job as the widow raising 3 boys who meets, falls in love with, and then marries a widower with one teenage girl. The resulting chaos produces many highly amusing situations that all of us can identify with. The whole issue of "us" and "them", "home territory" and how to protect it from "outsiders" is beautifully handled.
Doris Day plays her role with the smooth ease that her years of experience has taught her. In "Eggroll" she is sexy, and handles her role in a most realistic manner. She is at times loving, caring and warm, at other times frustrated and angry and just plan fed up with the whole situation which adds a truthful air to the whole proceedings. She is aided very well by Brian Keith who rather unexpectedly displays a terrific chemistry on screen with Doris. Theirs is a very honest and realistic coupling and they make "Eggroll" a super viewing experience.
The film benefits from its terrific supporting cast from Pat Carroll as Doris's match making sister to the wacky Alice Ghostley as the maid who always has a comment on each situation. The film boasts appearances by Jamie Farr (pre M*A*S*H)and William Christopher also pre M*A*S*H.

5.0 out of 5 stars This "Eggroll" is stuffed with laughs! October 13, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Released in August of 1968, this fast and funny comedy turned out to be Doris Day's cinema swan song, after twenty years as a major star in the Hollywood firmament. Luckily, it'll be remembered for being a notable success at the box-office and on many other fronts including it's sterling cast headed by Day, Brian Keith, Barbara Hershey. George Carlin, Pat Carroll, Alice Ghostley, Vic Tayback, Jamie Farr and other capable character actors and actresses.
While on first glimpse, it might be unfairly compared to "Yours, Mine, and Ours", another 1968 success, or the later television series, "The Brady Bunch", "Eggroll" more than holds it's own by endearingly telling the story of a widow and widower who fall in love and in spite of the machinations of their children, manage to wed and live happily ever after. The film's strengths are in the individual scenes and set pieces that establish the characters and situations with plenty of heart and lots of belly laughs.
Doris Day, playing a role close to her own age at the time, shows why she remained a favorite with audiences for so many years. She is natural, real, wonderful! There isn't a false moment in her portrayal of a 40ish widow and pundits who talk about "The Constant Virgin" roles she allegedly played have obviously never seen one of her films or studied the effortless way in which she lends credibility to every role she plays. She is sexy, warm, womanly and she and Keith have great chemistry.
It's a delightful romp for all concerned, especially the audience, who'll come away happily smiling and asking, "Why don't they make comedies like that anymore". Luckily for us, it's still highly watchable!

4.0 out of 5 stars Day lights up the screen in her final film role November 28, 2005
Format:DVD
WITH SIX YOU GET EGGROLL is a charming family comedy, in the vein of "Yours, Mine and Ours" and "The Brady Bunch". This film marked the last for Doris Day (who then concentrated on her hit television sitcom before gracefully retiring from the spotlight). She plays Abby McClure, a widow with three boys. Her sister (Pat Carroll) pushes her into a date with fellow widower Jake Iverson (Brian Keith), who has a teenage daughter (Barbara Hershey).

Bonding over their collective experiences, Abby and Jake fall in love and get married secretly in Vegas, to the horror of their children! This family comedy zips along nicely, much of the credit goes to Day who turns some fairly ho-hum dialogue and scenes into gold. Brian Keith is ably-partnered and the young Barbara Hershey reveals the acting talent she would successfully hone in later years. Pat Carroll and Alice Ghostley shine in comedic support roles (look closely for Jackie Joseph in the early party scene; she would later be a regular on "The Doris Day Show").

Paramount's DVD offers no extras but the anamorphic image is bright, colourful and remarkably-free from dirt and debris.
