5.0 out of 5 stars Great Family Entertainment March 5 2011

We really enjoyed this movie. Belles on Your Toes has a skip (2 sec.) in the first 5 minutes in the movie. We returned the one disc (replaced in 48 hrs. by Amazon-Thank you!) When the children were watching it on TV at Gramma's it hasd the same skip in the same place.
Definately worth the $$ even with the blip!

5.0 out of 5 stars both of these movies July 20 2006
By Terri - Published on Amazon.com
I must say that I grew up watching both of these cheaper by the dozen movies (the other being bells on their toes), and they tell the real story of this family, not the newer version. The newer version with Steve Martin is silly, and has nothing to do with the real family. It's all Hollywood. Watch these two movies first, than compare to the newer ones, and you'll see the difference. The new ones are all about disrespect, which Father wouldn't of approved of back in the early 1900's, not to mention, the new version is in the now, not the early 1900's when this family really existed. This movie is close to the book, and is wonderfully acted. It's a must see in my library of DVD's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper by the Dozen/Belles on Their Toes Oct. 19 2005
By L. Lynes - Published on Amazon.com
A wonderful story based on a real family with 12 children. It shows the changing times in the early 1900s--shorter skirts, shorter hair, "modern" thinking--against the "old set" ways, and the strength of family members supporting each other. It is funny, touching, sad and heartening. I loved them both. (The books are great too!)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Older Version is the Better Choice June 2 2007
By F. Rosenbaum - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Clifton Webb was most often case in dramatic roles. In ""Cheaper by the Dozen"" we get to see Webb in his comedic best. The original version of this film surpasses the newer one for many reasons: 1)the adults in the original had a wisdom and dignity sadly lacking in the modern setting, 2)the work ethic of the Gilbreth children is enchanting in the original, and, finally, 3) touching on the subject of death in the original adds even more depth to the story. ""Bells on Their Toes"" is not as unexpected as the original, but knowing more history about the Gilbreth family and their amazing mother is a nice sequel. This DVD should be in every family video library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good family fun. Aug. 22 2006

I purchased this set of DVD's for my granddaughters, who had listened to an audio book of the novel Cheaper by the Dozen and had enjoyed it. They were excited to see the characters come to life and had many questions about life "back then". Both DVD's are a good choice for a night of family viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper by the Dozen (1950) / Belles on Their Toes July 10 2006
By Dianne Gomes - Published on Amazon.com
When I first saw Cheaper by the Dozen, If was intrigued by the family and it's history. I even went so far as to borrow books from the library that the parents wrote and also the children. It's a remarkable piece of period history and the past history of RI and Brown University.

It also prompted me to travel to Nantucket Island to see what it was like and view a little of the family history that is still existing there. The original main house is gone and one of the silo's the children slept in but I piece of history is preserved. Also the Bed & Breakfast the son owned is still there too.
