Product Description


Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt corral a wild herd of rampaging children in Cheaper by the Dozen, an enjoyable family flick. When Kate Baker (Hunt, Jerry Maguire) gets a book deal for her chronicle of their abundant family life, she also gets drawn into a book tour--leaving Tom (Martin, Bringing Down the House, The Jerk) to run the house and cope with his new, high-pressure job as a football coach. Naturally, chaos erupts, bringing the family to the brink of meltdown. Cheaper by the Dozen is not a great movie or an important movie or even a surprising movie, but it is a warm-hearted crowd-pleaser. The Bakers' family life is a bit idealized and antiseptic, but anyone looking for an escape from their own less-ideal family lives won't mind. Also featuring Tom Welling, Hilary Duff, Piper Perabo, and an uncredited Ashton Kutcher. --Bret Fetzer

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad , has some very funny moments Sept. 4 2007
By falcon
this movie isn't too bad.there are a couple of very funny moments in
the movie.i also liked the energy level of the film.it was very
high.the movie is entertaining for the most part.the only things i
didn't like,is that i felt Steve Martin over exaggerated his
expressions and action in some of the physical comedy.i also thought
the "inspirational" theme music was a bit overpowering at times.but
these are just small complaints.otherwise,it's a pretty good movie.i
thought the kids all did a good job acting.i really like Bonnie Hunt,who
played the wife and mother.i thought she was a standout in the movie.i
did think the ending was predictable,but i'm sure that's by design.with
most movies of this genre,you usually know how things will end up.
after the movie ended,i felt satisfied that i had got my money's
worth,which is more than can be said for many movies.i give "Cheaper by
the Dozen" a strong 3/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper By The Dozen Sept. 7 2012
By Scoopriches TOP 500 REVIEWER
It is a zippy zany comedy filled with heart. It is kinda, sorta, based on the real story of Frank Bunker Gilbreth and Lilian Moller Gilbreth, but not really. And this version, our introduction to this tale, stars the esteemed Steve Martin and the radiant Bonnie Hunt. They prove that things really are Cheaper By The Dozen.

Cheaper By The Dozen is about a small town couple, who partly by deign and partly by accident, end up with an even dozen biological kids. That alone should be enough to cause chaos on an epic scale, but when the mother goes on a book tour and the father takes a job in the big city, forcing the massive family to relocate, well, you ain't seen disorder on this scale in quite awhile.

Besides Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt, the cast includes the wonderful kids. The eldest is played by the lovely Piper Perabo, next up is hunky (according to my wife) Tom Welling, followed by the charming Hilary Duff. A wild assortment of various younger actors fill out the rest of this huge group, all topped off with a cute dog. Keep a sharp eye out for little Liliana Mumy, who is the daughter of Will Robinson from the 1960's show Lost In Space.

Everyone who has ever told me that Ashton Kutcher couldn't act need only to look at the Butterfly Effect and this great movie here. Every scene he is in is absolute gold, proving that the much maligned Ashton is being wasted on that awful show he is on now. Ashton Rules!

Cheaper By The Dozen provides great mirth, merriment, and heart. We have seen the classic many times over the years and have always loved it. Steve Martin is a treasure here, and thankfully he survived these kids. Whew!

2.0 out of 5 stars An OK movie with some throw backs. March 27 2006
This film is a remake of the 1953 film along with a movie based on the book. It isn't as good as it could have been; they had an oppurtunity to make a great film but they didn't execute as well as they could have.
The story basically goes that a family with 12 children lives in the countryside. When the father gets a coaching job in Chicago the family moves there, but the children are hesitant and angry to go. The rest mostly consists of the children being angry and the mother going on a trip touring a book called Cheaper by the Dozen.
This film is not at all great and, in my opinion, not above average. Why? Well, here's reason number one. Hilary Duff. She wrecked the movie with her terrible acting (although she could have acted a TON better,) and her SUPER ANNOYING 'fashion guru' act. She keeps on making lame mentions to fashion and make up, etc. It is really, really annoying and takes away from the film.
The second is the script. There are some bad lines (i.e. when Steve Martin is hanging from the chandelier,) and it can just make the viewer cringe. I cannot say how bad the script is sometimes. When the kids are soaking Hank's underwear in meat, I don't think the kid (if he was logical and actually knew anything about hockey,) would use an EASTON STICK to soak his underwear in meat.
I do not recommend this film, although little kids may enjoy it. They could have done so much better on the film, and I'm skipping CBTD 2.

2.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Handed, Tired Jokes July 19 2004
Of course, Steve Martin is a joy to watch in almost anything, and I was expecting a reprisal of his role in the wonderful PARENTHOOD. Sadly, this was not. I do not think he makes a believable football coach.
But most of all, I was bored to tears and a little disgusted by kids bratty behavior being the centerpiece of the jokes. If you come from a large family, or know someone who does, you know that discipline is the cornerstone of that many people living together. I find it incredibly hard to believe that a parent of so many offspring would calmly accept or condone any of their behavior. I wanted to spank all twelve of them (and the parents for letting them get away with it).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not even that many laughs July 16 2004
Waste of talent, insult to parents who can cope, and just plain bothersome. You might stay awake for the first hour, but then it gets embarassing. So give into your urges and take a nap. Remember Clifton Webb.

This movie is an atrocity.
It is a butchering interpretation of an excellent book and an earlier movie that is also very good. Read more
