Editorial Reviews

Based on a true story and co-starring Van Johnson and Tom Bosley, Yours, Mine And Ours keeps the laughs coming in a "clean, wholesome family comedy" (Life). This population explosion occurs when widowed Navy nurse Helen North (Ball) meets handsome Naval officer and widower Frank Beardsley (Fonda). They have much in commontoo much in factshehas eight kids and he has ten, and when they tie the knot, anarchy reigns in the Beardsley-North merger. The opposing camps of step-siblings do all they can to sabotage each other and their parents' union. But, through it all, mother lovingly cares for her "troops," while father patiently coaches his coming-of-age kids in more delicate matters, and resentment soon gives way to respect and something bigger than anyone could have imagined!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than a great comedy April 27, 2003
One can set up a debate between a Jesuit priest supporting the sanctity of life and the secularist dedicated to worldwide birth control, but perhaps the message of the beauty and mystery and wonder of family would be better delivered by this comedy than by a recitation of the catechism. Henry Fonda's character is right: nothing new has been written since "Fanny Hill".
A reviewer wrote that she was disappointed at the children's disrespect toward the adults. But I thought the children's less than perfect behavior was essential to the film and the film's message. Yeah, having children, be it three or eighteen, is a burden. There's no guarantee they'll be grateful for the sacrifices you make for them or that they'll allow you to have any sort of life of your own. The children in the film are not angels. Few are. Indeed, I would argue they're rather normal, with the scales leaning heavily toward good. They're bratty, tender, difficult, warm, self-centered and giving. That's the beauty of life and humanity and it's more or less what Fonda tried to explain to Lucy's oldest daughter when she questioned him about sex. "You tell him that this is what it's all about."
Notice how the film places a certain amount of focus on Tim Matheson's character. Early on, he spikes Lucy's drink and then giggles as she humiliates herself. (Shades of the "Otter" character he would play ten years later.) But eventually he decides that she's not so bad - at about the time, not coincidentally, that he's becoming a man - then he accepts her and, being a natural leader like his father, persuades his siblings to elect her "our mother, for life".
That scene, indeed the whole film, would not have worked had the children been so unrealistically and quickly accepting of the stepmother.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comedy About A Real Life Story June 5, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
YOURS,MINE AND OURS is a wacky comedy about the struggles of a second marriage for both a widow and 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 everbody 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 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 70 of Parkinson's disease.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny Family Comedy October 11, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this film when it first appeared in theatres in 1968, and upon watching it again recently, I find it has held up quite well.
The story concerns two large families coming together to make one enormous, disfuntional family (18 in all.) Henry Fonda is perfect as the Naval officer/father of 10, and shows quite a flare for comedy here, while trying to balance his military career and his new marrige. Lucy is hilarious as the zany Mother of 8, and as Fonda's new wife she shows us a touch of her tender side as she lovingly trys to bring these two families together.
There are some really funny scenes here like the 60's swinger bar scene, (That roving eye lash is a laugh riot,) and a drunken Lucy at the dinner table is a classic!
This is a great movie for the whole family, no cussing, the writing is sophisticated and light sexual overtones are handled in a very discrete way. I hardily recommend this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yours, Mine and Mine, Mine,Mine!!!! March 27, 2004
That's what my seven-year-old bellowed when she found the DVD! One late night when she was sick, we were searching for something acceptable and un-infomercially to watch and we found Yours Mine and Ours. Lucy looks great, as does Mr. Fonda, although I did find Van Johnson's eyes to be a bit weird (or maybe that's just me). If you watch closely you can catch little Tracy Nelson (Think snob/valley girl from Square Pegs w/Sarah Jess. Parker, and weird, visting sister on Melrose Place) And a very young Tim Matheson, playing, (I think the eldest) of too many children to count. There are some funny, and semi-mature scenes: Lucy gets drunk, and I mean DRUNK by accident,while having dinner at Henry's, Henry has a date with a "fast" woman, and there's a daughter being pressured by her Paul Newman-y boyfriend to [make love] (they even mention that he's Paul Newman-y in the movie!) But those scenes are quite tame and minor, compared to all the chaos and fun of bringing two groups of disgruntled kids together. The kids are great, but the movie is really Lucy and Henry's, as they try to keep it all together. The best way to sum it up is by simply saying Yours Mine and Ours is quite charming!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great comedy for the family! July 31, 2002
By Deanna
Yours, Mine and Ours is based on a true story. The idea to make Helen and Frank Beardsley's life into a movie came from Lucille Ball herself, who read an article about the couple in a magazine and thought it would make a good film.
The movie is about a widow, Helen North, a nurse for the Navy, who has eight children. She meets Navel officer Frank Beardsley, a widower, who has ten children (one of his sons, Mike, is played by Tim Matheson). They begin dating and soon they're married.. Although, the kids aren't very happy about their parents marrying new people. But the family is in for a shock while Frank is away at sea!
Also starring Van Johnson, this is a fantastic, heartwarming comedy that the entire family will enjoy. Lucille Ball, as usual, is hysterical and Henry Fonda is charming and just as funny. This is one of Lucy's best performances!

Very enjoyable family movie. No profanity. No nudity. It is from the 60's so clothing and some slang is dated.
