This is a family comedy with Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt, their dozen kids and the mayhem that ensues from having such a large family. Some of the mayhem derives from the 9-year-old son Mark's interest in herps. One morning he sees his escaped bullfrog "Beans" up on a lamp above the kitchen table where the entire family is eating breakfast. When Mark tries to catch Beans with a net, the frog falls into a large bowl of scrambled eggs which explodes onto everybody. Then Beans hops around the kitchen as kids and adults try but fail to catch him, messing up the entire kitchen, until Steve Martin finally catches him in the net. Later in the film after Beans dies they have a funeral for him and Steve Martin says he was just like a member of the family except that he was green and ate flies.

The frog we see is an adult male bullfrog, but as is typical in movies, the sound it makes is the sound of a Pacific Treefrog.
