A horrendously cute premise: Navy widower with ten children meets and marries Navy widow with eight. There's worse to come, since all eighteen kids resent the new arrangement, and a nineteenth is shortly on the way. It's saved by the sheer professionalism of Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda, who share several very funny scenes, the best of which is a meeting in a crowded pub where he struggles with recalcitrant drinks and she with a descending undergarment as they try to make mutual confession as to the enormity of the contribution each is going to make to their marriage.
