"With Six You Get Eggroll" (1968)

This was to be Doris Day's last feature film and if it plays like a sitcom, a proto-"Brady Bunch", that's not necessarily a bad thing. She's a widow who meets cute and marries a widower ("Family Affair"'s Brian Keith). They both have broods and hijinx ensue in the extending and blending of both families. Throw in a big English sheepdog and a veritable Who's Who of '60's-'70's comedic second bananas like Pat Carroll, Alice Ghostly, George Carlin, Jamie Farr, and Vic Tayback and you get a comforting stew of slapstick and schmaltz. And did Doris EVER give a bad performance? Doubtful.
