Plot: With his wife doing a book tour, a father of twelve must handle a new job and his unstable brood. Runtime: 98 mins Release Date: 25 Dec 2003
One of the best family movies ever made! Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt are excellent in this modern day adaption of the classic book by Frank B. Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. Although not faithful to the original, this movie keeps the spirit of the original in that it shows family as the most important thing while still laughing at the humor of everyday life.The supporting cast is excellent! All of the actors playing the Baker kids deliver excellent performances. Most notable are Hilary Duff The Lizzie McGuire Show and Tom Welling Smallville . Hilary is great as always and gets <more>
to show that she has true potential as a dramatic actress. I'm not a big fan of Ashton Kutcher, but I must admit that he delivers an absolutely hilarious uncredited supporting part.This movie is a treat for any family. Most parents will find it acceptable for their kids. The only really offensive portion is some "thematic elements" involving the oldest 20-something daughter's living with a guy. This however is portrayed as an improper thing by her parents. Overall, an excellent and surprisingly clean movie. I strongly recommend this movie to anyone!
I truly enjoyed this movie! I've seen it over and over again. :0 I taped it off HBO many months ago, but I still wanted to rent the DVD from Blockbuster to see the "extras". : I loved the director's commentary, but wish they had included much more in the way of outtakes and 'behind the scenes/making of..' info. : I just loved the kids in this movie, but the kids' commentary was a waste of time. Just a bunch of silliness, really. : The Kinsman twins were absolutely darling!! They remind me of our middle son, who looks a lot like them. Those twins are just <more>
precious, CUTE little boys. They make me want to have identical twins! But we have four children now, and we're done! :0 :0 Can't wait to see the sequel to the movie! I'm going on opening night in our city, for sure.In my opinion, I don't think the movie is suitable for children younger than 13. We certainly didn't let our children watch it. But I loved it to pieces!! :
Obsession is Unhealthy but not for me (by yellobaseballgrl)
My name is Angela and I just turned 13 today. I just wanted to let whoever is reading this know, that Cheaper By The Dozen is the best movie I have ever seen. I have seen it twice in theaters and 10 times on DVD in the past 1 1/2 weeks. I don't know what it is about this movie, but I can watch it over and over and never get bored. I know the names of everyone in the movie, I almost have the whole script memorized, and it just makes me feel so happy to watch it. They say obesession is unhealthy, but since I've been watching this movie, it gives me motivation and overall has made me <more>
happier than my usual dullness. I have to go now, I have to watch Cheaper By The Dozen for the thirteenth time. Cyaz
Not as good as the original, but still very good (by BrandtSponseller)
Tom Steve Martin and Kate Baker Bonnie Hunt have a Baker's dozen--children, that is. When Tom, a football coach, gets a job offer to coach a college football team just outside of Chicago, and Kate's book about raising 12 children finally gets a publishing offer, they see bright things for their future. The only problem is that their 12 children do not want to move from their rural Illinois home, and things become nearly disastrous when Kate has to leave for a couple weeks to promote her book.While I didn't enjoy Cheaper By The Dozen as much as the original version of the film <more>
from 1950, the 2003 "re-imagining" is still a 9 out of 10 for me the original was a 10 out of 10 for me . It's a re-imagining rather than a remake because although the overall plot arc has some similarities, these are two very different films, with very different messages, and very different kinds of families. Both are rather cartoonish, which works for me--I don't require much realism in my films. For anyone who is looking for something primarily believable, Cheaper By The Dozen may not fit the bill.The major change from the original to the new film is a change from control to near-chaos. In the Baker's case, it doesn't take long to realize that the chaos arises from their lack of disciplining their children. While this may not be realistic surely anyone planning to have a family this large would realize that discipline and control would be necessary to not have one's home destroyed , it does lead to a lot of comic situations, and that's really the point here. Yes, there is a message in the end about putting family first, but what director Shawn Levy really wants you to do is laugh. My wife and I laughed quite a bit while watching the film, so Levy accomplished his goal with us. My only slight complaint on this end was that some of the funniest material involved the eldest Baker daughter's boyfriend, Hank Ashton Kutcher , and he just wasn't in the film enough. The material about the Shenk's, neighbors of the Baker's, was also funny and a bit underused. This was the reason for lowering my score 1 point.The rest of the cast is good, although like the original Cheaper By The Dozen, we barely get to know some of the children, but that's understandable when we have to deal with 14 characters as well as ancillary characters. Steve Martin was excellent, as always I enjoy his work in even his less popularly appreciated films , and although Hilary Duff as daughter Lorraine Baker seemed a bit odd in the context of the family, I enjoyed her performance a lot, also. There's something about her that I like, and it's not just her looks.
In my opinion "Cheaper by the dozen" is a very good movie. Not very creative...but still good!!!This film is perfect to watch with your friends or family when you just want to relax and don't want to reflect at all...you just have to laugh and have fun. It's a movie to the whole family...without restrictions. But...if you only like movies that make you think or dramatics stories with a very involving plot, "Cheaper by the dozen" is not for you. The cast is wonderful too!!! Steve Martin is fantastic he is always fantastic . Bonnie Hunt is very good too!! And the <more>
"teens" actors, like Hilary Duff, Tom Welling and Ashtons Kutcher are so good...This film is really very good and funny...If you like this kind of movie you have to watch!!!
Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt are wonderful in this family movie and I just loved it. Tom and Bonnie are highschool sweethearts, who fall in love, marry and have 12 children. You can see how much they are in love right from the beginning, however the trouble starts when Tom gets his dream job as a football coach and they move from their comfortable home where everyone is happy. Now they must adjust to a new life, which is always hard for children and to top it off Bonnie writes a book and makes it big time. Going on a book tour, she leaves the children to the charge of Tom, who is already <more>
dealing with the pressures of his job. Everything that can happen does happen and for a while their lives are going downhill. But, love pulls this family together and the wrongs are righted, it was great! If you want a good family, feel good movie then you need to watch this one. Acting was good, story was good and there was a lot of humor mixed in. Well worth your time.
A fairly amusing family comedy, with almost no relation to the book or the earlier film with this title. Steve Martin plays the father of the group of 12 kids who uproots them all to move to the big city where a football coaching job awaits.. suddenly the mom an amusingly bemused Bonnie Hunt gets called away on a book tour and dad has to raise all the kids himself. Interesting casting has Piper Perabo star of the gloriously underrated "Coyote Ugly" as the oldest daughter, Hillary Duff as the teenage daughter, Tom Welling of TV's "Smallville" as the oldest son and <more>
Ashton Kutcher taking an unbilled role as Piper's live-in boyfriend.. and poking fun at himself in the process. The rest of the kids are mostly of the unknown but cute variety,... and the kids get most of the laughs with their various schemes and screw ups along with Martin's reactions to it all. The ending drags a bit as things start to get serious and the family is on the verge of falling apart, but as long as it sticks to the pratfalls the film can be very amusing. GRADE: B
Cheaper By The Dozen is a great family fun movie. It is about a large family, The Bakers' who have twelve children and they have to juggle their careers and being a parent. They move from their small old house to a very large house in a suburban street because the father Martin gets a great job opportunity that would be following his life long dream, but at the same time his wife Hunt also gets a great chance at her dream of being a published writer and she has to travel and be away from her kids. The comedy is very fun and exciting as the children like to plot against their eldest <more>
sister's Perabo boyfriend Hank Kutcher and his "money making face".Hank is a very funny character and he brightens up this fun-filled comedy with his witty comments and his selfish attitude.In the end the family realise that having money doesn't necessarily make you happier.This movie was good and would have been even better if Hank was in it more as he brightens this light - hearted comedy.
After Martin's lackluster Bringing Down the House, this movie was a vast improvement. Martin is highly likable as a small town football coach who is offered the opportunity to move to Chicago to coach a major college football team. This opportunity is too good to pass up and since it is what Martin has wanted his whole life. The bad thing is that his large family, that is used to living the small-town lifestyle is forced to uproot and move to a totally alien environment in a rapid-paced big city. Martin's professional life clashes with his personal life, as his university boss wants <more>
him to spend all his waking hours concentrating on football, while his twelve children are all running into problems adjusting to the new environment and constantly need his attention. His problems get multiplied when his wife's career as a writer takes off and she is asked to go on a tour to promote her book, leaving Martin to be in charge of the 12 demanding children.It is highly entertaining seeing how Martin tries to have his football team practice at his house so he can also watch his kids. All of this goes on under the scrutiny of his controlling neighbors, who only have one kid, who they don't allow to do anything fun.There are some really touching moments especially involving Martin's youngest son, who seems to be ignored by everyone else. His best friends are his frogs and the move is devastating to him because he will not be able to bury all his frogs together when they die. It is an almost heartbreaking moment when his other frog dies and he gets on a bus or was it a train? by himself to travel back to his old house and bury his frog with his frog's friend.
