Movie Info

With 12 children to take care of, Lillian Gilbreth (Myrna Loy) always had her hands full, but, after the death of her husband, life just got even more complicated. In this sequel to "Cheaper by the Dozen," the recent widow, needing to provide for her family, desperately looks for work. And although Lillian has an engineering background, finding employment proves to be a challenge given the rampant sexism plaguing the industry. Meanwhile, her children face the difficulties of young adulthood.

Critic Reviews for Belles on Their Toes

All Critics (2) | Fresh (2)

  • It's a folksy, semi-musical domestic comedy, quite pleasant in spots although sometimes straining too obviously to be oh-so-likable.

  • Doesn't completely hold up a half century after its release, but it is a nostalgic bit of innocent humour.

    It's as delightful as it's prequel Cheaper By The Dozen. It makes a great film for the whole family.
