Cheaper by the Dozen Reviews

Life in the Baker house is as chaotic as life in the original 1950 Cheaper Gilbreth house was well-ordered and organized. I think I like the in-name-only remake better.

Sweet, syrupy and corny. But it made us laugh. DVD disc doesn't add much to what's on-screen.

A combination of clever writing, top-notch comedic leads, winning performances from the youngest Bakers, and a genuine affection for old-fashioned (read: big and loud) families elevates Cheaper above the dreaded kid-movie dreck.

This isn't a film made for reviewers, it's made for kids, and for them it's mildly successful.

Not a brilliant comedy, but sturdy and reliable, with plenty of laughs.

It's not just a feel-good holiday movie, though audiences, especially youngsters, will certainly walk out of it feeling good.

Steve Martin plays by the numbers in "Cheaper by the Dozen"... but it's a funny family flick nevertheless.

This is a movie that knows its audience and realizes it doesn't need much of a story to hit that audience, literally, where it lives.

Martin and Hunt give the production a mellow warmth. And Levy has cast an appealingly diverse bunch of kids to play the young Bakers.

The warmth, messiness and gentle humor Cheaper offers is nothing to sneeze at.

The cartoonish chaos will engage little ones, while Tom's struggle to balance career and home time should keep parents' eyes on the screen.

Good performances keep the movie from collapsing under the weight of its cliches.

From playful mugging to tender affection, Martin exudes a strong star persona, and he and Hunt share romantic warmth despite a dearth of alone time.

It's rare to see a film that is not just squeaky-clean in content, but in its very philosophy. The fact that it's also a funny, warm, entertaining film is almost just icing.

I am hard-pressed to come up with a reason why anyone should make a special trip to see this frivolous, formulaic comedy, but I also cannot in good conscience condemn it.
