Summary: A young widow with three children and a sheepdog marries a widowed man with a young daughter and a French poodle in this amusing comedy. Abby (Doris Day) is the owner of a lumberyard who falls for Jake (Brian Keith) when her sister Maxine (Pat Carroll) introduce the two at a party. The couple is initially reluctant and somewhat embarrassed over the blatant matchmaking attempt but meet later at an all-night store. The two marry and deal with constant canine and sassy sibling rivalries. Jake falls out of the family trailer on vacation, leading Abby to recruit a group of hippies to find her lost husband. Jamie Farr is the far out hippie, Barbara Hershey is Jake's daughter Stacey, comedian George Carlin plays Herbie Fleck, owner of a local hamburger stand, and Alice Ghostley is the harried housekeeper in this engaging romp. The Grass Roots provide some of the music in this feature. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Craig Butler

Released at roughly the same time as the similar Yours, Mine and Ours, With Six You Get Eggroll has the same kind of "wholesome" flavor of many Disney live action films of the period. The wholesomeness is a little excessive, especially to modern audiences, and the attempts at being "hip" and "contemporary" (while still being "family fit") provoke a lot of unintended laughs nowadays; the scene involving the hippies is especially guilty of this, and throughout the dialogue tries too hard to be groovy. What makes Eggroll worth a look is the cast. Leads Doris Day and Brian Keith are a well-matched pair, and Day puts some teeth into her scenes; she brings a great deal of commitment to a project that could get by with a great deal less. Keith's gruff but loveable manner is used to very good effect, and both stars make the most of the big argument about housekeeping. Pat Carroll and Alice Ghostley provide able comic support, and tv trivia fans should watch for Jackie Joseph, later a regular on The Doris Day Show, in a tiny part. Eggroll would be Day's last foray into feature films. ~ Craig Butler, Rovi
