Along with the sociopaths who are Carrie's adult children in All That Heaven Allows, the two older kids in this movie (both high school graduates getting ready for college) are selfish, arrogant, self centered, loud and remarkably stupid. They cause most of the family troubles and they just don't care or possibly they're two stupid to realize their own cruelty. Despite these two snots, the is a good film and lively comedy.
This is an enjoyable comedy and it actually gives a bit of a glimpse into middle class American life in the 1960s. That doesn't matter, He and Doris Day combine to make a fun story that is well worth watching. One piece of plot I don't quite get. Why does Doris Day need a wig for her dinner party? Other than using it as a comedic prop with the collie dog, it makes no sense. Doris Day was always the very image of an all American woman, Beautiful (with spectacular hair), she was the essence of the emerging independent woman. Day plays a widow now running a large business and raising three boys and a huge dog. She is charming, devoted and endlessly cheerful yet the exhaustion she feels each day highlight the fact she was representing the new concept of women having challenging careers while raising a family. Good movie.
I remember seeing this movie at the Lakewood Mall when it was released in the late 60s. Always love Doris Day and Brian Keith in movies but this is my absolute favorite. Especially love the club scene with the Grass Roots, so nostalgic!
Why? Why? Why?
- Raymond Banacki
Doris Day and Brian Keith were not a good match - Pat Carroll is a soul-destroying presence - if it weren't for John Findlater, Jimmy Bracken and Richard Steele, this so-called entertainment would be unendurable.
With Six You Get Eggroll
I remember seeing this as a kid at the theater. It's still one of my favs, as well as my now adult, daughter. Jamie Farr and George Carlin have minor rolls, it's great seeing them here. Glad I have the DVD. It's a great one, not to be missed. Doris is always lovely. Pat Carrol is always hilarious.

...6 Get Eggroll and more...
WITH SIX YOU GET EGGROLL - This movie IS available on DVD. But, please, TCM, keep running it on Turner Classics. And update your info on formats! We love it.You need to update the database - AND ADD back the ability to REQUEST NOTIFICATION BY EMAIL when a movie is playing, even months in advance. Why did that disappear? I'm looking for Neil Simon's Chapter Two to air again - esp as part of a Neil Simon night on TCM. Again, I can't request it for TCM play, nor can I ask for a reminder for its air time if the Gods of TCM decide to run it again. Seems they've only run it maybe once in the last decade. Got it on home DVD transfer at the time it aired at home, but the dvd is now destroyed. Still have it on VCR and treasure it.TCM - you've seemingly changed too many avenues we have to communicate our wishes and for notifications. Why? It didn't cost any more - it's simple query and adding.

I agree with Jan, who wrote in , in Nov '06 that not all films in the vault get equal time, the same ones ARE shown over and over again. I would love to see "With 6 You Get Eggroll" , if only to relive the fashions of my Jr High years and to remember the times I went to the cinema with my older cousin, who I was so jealous of because I thought she looked like Barbara Hershey.
Why are the same movies on t.v. over, and over again.How about some of those movies that are in the vualt, that we have not seen in years? Like "With Six You get Eggroll".
Day's Swan Song delivers the laughs
Doris Day's last film, "With Six You get Eggroll" was one of her most successful and for good reason. She and Brian Keith make a delicious team as two mature folks finding love despite the objections of their children. Fast, funny, well-cast and with plenty of laughs. Well worth a look.
Really entertaining movie about two single parents with children get together and marry causing alot of family friction. In the end everyone loves everyone. Doris Day and Brian Keith did the roles really nice.
