Mine, Yours, Ours

In this family comedy which came out in 2005, single parents Frank (played by Dennis Quaid) and Helen (played by Rene Russo) plan to get married, but it’s difficult with 18 children between them trying to sabotage the relationship. Frank, a Coast Guard Admiral and Helen, a widowed handbag designer fall in love and marry. Her 10 and his 8 children don’t like it much because they hadn’t been told about it.

The parents quickly discover that marriage and families can’t be built in a day. The children do everything they can to break up the marriage. However, in the end they change their minds and go and ask him to come back before he takes the job of commander, which had been offered to him.

The film was very good. First of all it wasn’t full of special effects, just a good script. The story was both funny and realistic. The actors and the actresses did a very good job. The director also did a good job. However, for me the best part of the film was the happy end. I won’t spoil your fun by telling what happens.

The Gods Must Be Crazy 2



The Gods Must Be Crazy 2, was filmed in 1985 but not released until 1989.

In it, Xixo's two young children go with him and Xave to find a wounded elephant. When they found him Xixo told his children to get back and tell the others to come and eat the animal. On their way they saw some tracks and followed them. They got on the truck and explored the back of it. Unfortunately it became unable to jump off once it starts moving, so they had to encounter them. Xixo must once again travel great distances to bring them back, and once again faces many other western characters who are on quests of their own.

Meanwhile Dr. Ann Taylor was on a safari by plane when a zoologist took over. At the place they landed there were many wild animals and Ann got scared. Will they survive and will Xixo find his children?

It was a little adventure with very funny scenes. The effects were not very good, but the story was exciting. The actors were good as gold. I liked it very much because of its humor.
