Product Description

Product Description

Martin/Hunt/Duff ~ Cheaper By The Dozen

Amazon.ca

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
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

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.

This movie was hilarious!! I really enjoyed it. The movie is about a family who deals with change when both parents decide to pursue their career dreams, and even more chaos ensues. You have a bunch of children who don't want to move, leave their school and friends, getting used to new schools, and playing major pranks on each other and on a boyfriend. You have one child who feels like an outsider, but the other siblings do really love him. Years ago this couple only wanted 8 children, but when they had a set of twins, decided to go for an even number. So they ended up with 12. You have one child who is a fashion person, very into her looks, make up and clothing. The oldest child has moved out, has her own life, and is trying to get her family to understand that. She is dating her boyfriend who is an actor her siblings don't like.
The scene that is so funny and I kept watching over and over and over again was the scene when the dog attacks the boyfriend whose shorts were soaked in meat. He is grabbing the floor and his screams reach a falsetto that just had me laughing and crying so hard. I love that scene!!!! Then he leaves the house and is chased by more dogs and has to jump in his car. What a riot!!!!
The story is ultimately about finding a happy medium, and deciding what is more important. Career or family. It is possible to have both, but at what costs? This movie is fun for the entire family to watch.

This movie is an atrocity.
It is a butchering interpretation of an excellent book and an earlier movie that is also very good. The only element that the "updated" version of the work has with either the book or the earlier film is the presence of twelve children. Now, I don't expect adaptation films to be carbon-copies of the original works, but I do expect them to be as good. I didn't ask for this movie to be realistic, but I did require it to be remotely funny. I was disappointed, to say the least.
What repulsed me and my fellow viewers was the fact that this film is yet another in a recent genre that apparently seeks to portray parents, particularly fathers, as idiots, and children as the only members of the household with a clue. If you find humor in parental idiocy, then this is your movie, because there's plenty of it. The plot is based on the tensions between the father and the children, and between the children themselves. It is about a household trying to destroy itself.
There's enough of this going on in real life, so I don't see any reasonable motivation for making it the butt of a joke. I just can't seem to find humor in blatantly defiant and disobedient children (even though the father's irresponsible behavior almost warrants it). However, I did laugh at seeing Ashton Kutcher's crotch being mauled by a dog, but Kutcher's crotch being mauled by a dog would be funny in any movie.
The movie gave me a headache, and the fact that everybody kissed and made up at the end didn't make it go away. To the analytical viewer, Cheaper by the Dozen is simply a blasphemous rip-off of a good book and a good movie,and a psychotic portrayal of how cynical and misguided the American family can be. To anyone else, you might want to settle with saying that it's just a really bad movie.
