It's the snobs vs. the slobs! And this holiday's no picnic!

All in all, the emphasis in this title is less on the '2' and more on the 'Cheaper.'

Here's a sentence I never thought I'd write: Carmen Electra is more interesting than Steve Martin.

This cheerless, tiresome sequel is so tastless and flimsy that it proves big families aren't much fun after all.

I wonder how many meetings they had before they came up with that title. And didn't we just see this movie a couple of weeks ago, and wasn't it called Yours, Mine and Ours?

Any movie that stars Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt can't be all bad, and this one isn't.

... you may get a half-hour sitcom's worth of laughs, but little more.

... feels cobbled together by a committee fresh from a marathon of family reunion and summer camp comedies.

"Cheapr by the Dozen 2," is not as ghastly as one might expect. In fact, it has moments that are realistic and sweet.

Crammed with moppet mayhem, mawkish sentiment and bruising slapstick, it's a flat-footed retread only Right to Lifers could love.

Even the bloopers during the closing credits stink.

The humor in Sam Harper's script is as malnourished as Hilary Duff appears to be.

For the most part, director Adam Shankman keeps the mayhem comprehensible.

Running a painfully long 100 minutes, the movie is made up of a tiresome series of predicable, slapstick moments.

When cutesy family-oriented comedies start to show the strained buffoonery of its leading star (Martin), you know it's time to hang up the hat and call it the day.

It aims to be pleasant and good-natured, which it is. There are enough laughs scattered throughout to keep everything moderately amusing, and the cast is likeable.

While their last movie relied on boisterous physical humor, this is built on a family feud.

The movie may play better on video screens in the back of minivans, but I suspect even seat-belted children will remain unimpressed.

Shankman drops the ball at the finish line, jettisoning the tough-love fun for cheap sentimentality.

This by-the-numbers pratfall-fest is as synthetically generic as a "Happy Holidays" card from your realtor.
