A rich, entitled woman gets into an accident and suddenly cannot remember who she is. A man whom she wronged before the accident gets mistaken as her husband, and decides to play along with it to get her back. Him and his three rowdy sons make her life pretty hellish, but as time goes on she starts to change them and mold them into a nice family. While still chaotic, she starts to love them and defend them. Very funny movie!

A really great movie! My whole family loves it. If you want a really good laugh without a lot of vulgar language this is it. Bill.
PS Roddy McDowell is Her valet, personal slave etc.

Yes, it's a silly rom-com, but this is back when romantic comedies had to be funny to make it into theatres. I love the camaraderie and repercussions in this film. Goldie and Kurt are priceless and work so well as a duo in this flick. I definitely have a soft spot for it; it's definitely a comfort food film that you watch when you're under the weather, all wrapped up in blankets. Easily one of my favourite love-dovey laughfests (especially on account of how little lovey-dovey it is for a good part of the film). I'd recommend it to anyone who wants an easy-breezy Sunday afternoon laugh.

"My children are in need of medical assistance! And you can sit here and smugly lecture me on the importance of tests? Tests which exist to pigeonhole children's potential, a thing which cannot possibly be measured, least of all by anal compulsive Huns! And my husband may be a "large child", but that's none of your business! And my children may be "rotten", but they're mine, and I think that they're bright and sensitive, so I have no doubts whatsoever about their intelligence. I do, however, have serious doubts about yours."

Coarse Language: Some mild curses, like b**ch and sh*t, and uses of blasphemous phrases, like damn and hell. Nothing too profane.

Other: The main characters drink alcohol throughout, whether it be cocktails or a six pack of beer. The female character played by Goldie Hawn also starts off as a smoker.

Violence: There's a tiny bit of slapstick violence and the film is about amnesia, so there's a slight hit on the head, but this film is not very violent at all.

Sexual Content: Joanna is seen wearing a thong and, in another scene, she's in a low-cut dress. It's considered very minor stuff.
