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

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.

As I watched this sequel, a certain good feeling began to make itself known. Yes, the movie is unnecessary. However, it is unnecessary at a higher level of warmth and humor than the recent remake Yours, Mine and Ours.

When a film makes $190M at the box office, you have to expect a sequel. This one is just as good as the first...actually a little better.

Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is predictable, manipulative, and probably funded by the Taliban, but that doesn't mean you won't enjoy it.

Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is so incredibly bland and by the numbers it's painful to watch ... it's just a collection of unfunny moments that are both uninteresting and annoying.

I was convinced I was going to hate this film. But, it didn't bug me as much as I thought it would.

I think it should be considered child abuse to inflict this tripe upon children.

A sequel every bit as bland, forced and flat as the generic 2003 comedy which spawned it.

There's a discernible lack of enthusiasm from almost everyone involved, and Duff, who's gone from wholesome to haggard in two short years, is flat-out scary.

There's something pernicious about a toxic mix of sitcom and snickering sex jokes getting packaged and effectively sold as wholesome fun for the family.

Its heart is in the right place, but a reliance on gimmicks and sentiment undermines the story. In the end, both the laughs and the tears here come just a little too cheap.

All I wanted to do was rent Ron Howard's Parenthood again just to remind myself that Steve Martin once made a film about families that was both honest and funny.

Martin and Levy mug for their close-ups and then retire to their trailers while the stunt doubles do the really hard work.
