The kids will love it; parents will just have to put up with it.

This film is funniest when it doesn't try so hard.

Sequels to comedies usually come with a risk to one's digestive system, and sequels to bad comedies should carry a warning label.

'Cheap' is the word for Cheaper by the Dozen 2.

Sequels tend to be stupider by the dozen, and part two is perhaps overshadowed only by the banality and pointlessness of say, Leprechaun 6.

Unfortunately in this instance, more doesn't make merry, only mayhem.

We likely have a sequel because the first Steve Martin family comedy successfully grossed 3 1/2 times its budget by teasing light humor out of family high jinks. That's all fine, but did it have to be set in summer camp-style?

Steve Martin is kind of like your uncle who still gets to play quarterback during the holiday family football game, even though he hasn't thrown a touchdown since 1992.

With three inspired comics -- Martin, Levy and Hunt -- as the adult leads, Cheaper 2 is not an entirely wearing experience. But its predictability borders on the insulting.

Moviegoers who enjoyed the PG anarchy the first time around should find amusement in the second Dozen. If the last picture left you with a migraine and a sense of claustrophobia, the sequel will be another bout of pain.

Unfortunately, this family comedy doesn't live up to its promising premise.

There is no hilarity, just a couple of veteran funnymen going through the hellishly predictable motions in this unimaginative and unnecessary sequel.

There is a good movie to be made about the difficulties parents have in letting go of their children. Actually, Ron Howard already made that movie. It was called Parenthood and it starred Steve Martin.

If the creators seem lethally bored with their product, most viewers will find their patience tested, too.

The film is at its best when it's not trying to be desperately funny, but that's rare.

Cheaper By the Dozen 2 dishes sweetness and sentimentality in holiday-sized portions. It has its heart in the right place. Too bad it only fitfully locates its funny bone.

In this Hollywood fantasy about a family with 12 kids, nobody does chores, we never see dirty dishes and mom (Bonnie Hunt) is always immaculately groomed, dressed and smiling June Cleaver-style, right down to the tasteful string of pearls.

Jimmy's kids' resentment is noticed only by the keenly attentive Carmen Electra.
