Cheaper by the Dozen Reviews

It wastes Hunt's whiplash-quick timing and further reduces the once-wild, once-crazy Martin to the generic father figure he has collected checks for in too many recent movies.

"Cheaper By The Dozen" has clearly been bought and sold as a family comedy,and for that reason the true pathos of the story continue to get buried beneath unbelievable comedy

Wait to rent this mixed-bag family film -- it's much cheaper.

The script is slack and lazy, incapable of a satisfying resolution for even the most reliable family-movie plot devices like a mean bully or over-protective neighbors.

Remake bears no resemblance to the 1950 original.

This remake is perfect holiday fare for all those families who can't get enough of According to Jim, My Wife & Kids and Yes, Dear.

Tries to be as wholesome as Ward Cleaver, but is about as sincere as Eddie Haskell.

it's a good movie if you're kid thinks he's a bit of a misfit - or if there's any discussion about adding another mouth to feed.

The only thing more outdated than Cheaper by the Dozen's soundtrack is its hokey life lessons concerning the importance of family over career.

A disgrace. A spineless eunuch of a father allows his children to yell at him and bully him. They destroy a mansion. Their mother must be on heroin.

Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt, reliable pros though they are, don't stand a chance against the forces arrayed against them: the bald cliches, unspeakable dialogue, and cheap sentimentality of the script ...

So calculatedly cast with popular kid stars that it seems a focus group was guiding all the choices.

Another disposable and quick-witted vehicle aimed at securing the generic feel good vibes for those begging for conveyor belt family fare that's syrupy and indistinguishable.

'Cheaper by the Dozen' is not only one of the worst films of the year, it is also a perfect example of why so many foreign countries hate America so much.

Martin may excel at playing buttoned-down, neurotic men coming apart at the seams, but he is wholly unconvincing playing dad to a lot of cute, precocious tykes from central casting.

The script is credited to four writers and I wonder if any one of them realized how similar their climax is to The Brady Bunch Movie.

OK, so I haven't read the original book or seen the previous movie. But I'd bet the family dog never rooted its snout furiously in a kid-hating boyfriend's crotch.
