Cheaper by the Dozen lives up by its title because that's what makes Cheaper by the Dozen a weak movie. It literally gets cheaper by the dozen amount of times I see this movie.

Like most recent Steve Martin movies, sadly to say, this one isn't that good, and focuses on the aspects of family and lighthearted fun. The execution is poor and the script is weak, but the message is warm.

Purely lighthearted family comedy. An amusing take on the original version, Steve Martin proves himself much more than likable in this role. One too many kids, not enough laughs.

A very average family film that deals with the trials of living in a large family. I like Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt and they do a good job here, but the script failed to capture me fully.

This movie really wasn't exactly hilarious. It was funny in cute ways. It is fun to see it once because it really is a cute movie, but only once and never again. It has really good family values and is great for little kids.

Like many movies this one ended up being too sappy and just plain sickening sweet by the end (which didn't come soon enough). The "aren't kids cute" lack of discipline style of parenting is what really grates, though. For instance, Like many movies this one ended up being too sappy and just plain sickening sweet by the end (which didn't come soon enough). The "aren't kids cute" lack of discipline style of parenting is what really grates, though. For instance, the neighbor parents are presented as uptight A-holes for not allowing their son to skate in the house, while the "good parents" allow their kids to play roller hockey in the house. Try explaining this to your 10-year-old son on the way home. Expand

The first 2/3 of this family comedy are hysterical. However, the last third act drags to the extremely conventional it had me cringing throughout. Also, the kids are occasionally selfish, and also twice brilliant. Great for the kids, okay The first 2/3 of this family comedy are hysterical.

Typical piece of so-called "family entertainment" that relies far too much on vomit jokes and mean-spirited slapstick. You can't blame the two stars, though: Steve Martin projects uncommon warmth (and when was the last time you heard Typical piece of so-called "family entertainment" that relies far too much on vomit jokes and mean-spirited slapstick.

(Supposedly she wrote a much more down-to-earth script that was, of course, immediately squashed.) Even these two excellent performances can't hide the fact that we're talking about two so-called parents who don't deserve one kid, let alone twelve: remember that they're so completely unaware of how completely ostracized one of the more sensitive members of their brood is that he not only runs away from home, but it takes them a while to even notice he's gone! Their story isn't a cause for celebration...it's a reason to call Child Protective Services... ASAP!! Expand
