It's a stupid movie based on shit that would never happen in real life!

-A grown-ass man telling prospective babysitters that all of his 12 kids needed to be supervised even though two of them are high schoolers and another is dating Ashton Kutcher (Huh? I never knew Demi Moore was Bonnie Hunt's kid)!
-A Division-Three NCAA head college football coach receiving a direct promotion to the same position in Division-One.
-A rich bastard college football coach putting his spoiled brat kids in public schools but not private.
-A ballyhooed fame seeking football coach not using his celebrity name to get his quarterback son to be a starting quarterback or prominent role player anywhere!
-Impromptu book tours ... as if the author (Bonnie Hunt) had no schedule! All authors have schedules ... even JK Rowling!
-Parents failing to emphasize free tuition! If your kids are so unwilling to move because they want to live in Shitville, USA instead of get free college, even if it was 2003, you should disown them and pray for them to each have a $500,000 in debt!

The closest thing to real this movie ever got to was the red-headed sibling feeling like the closest thing to shit and the fact that a family can have 12 kids. If the douche director wanted to make this a real-life movie, they should have just based this movie in Utah!

genial and enjoyable enough; good chemistry between Martin and Hunt

A very nice, funny, sweet film. It's a little hard to like Steve Martin's character at first because of how arrogant he is, but he turns into a very nice, loving dad. Great for kids and adults alike

Big family fun. A little corny perhaps, but I thought it was sweet. (First viewing - December 2003 in theaters)

Such a silly movie to watch that will make you laugh

WHAT I LIKED: 'Cheaper by the Dozen' is a pretty fun movie that will occasionally produce some giggles, but will always produce a smile. Yes the appeal of this so-called comedy can more so be found in the endearing characterisation and simple messages, rather than where its cheap, slapstick laughs are concerned.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: It really is nothing remotely profound, emotional or even at all funny, and as a result it's extremelly forgettable and lacks any sort of genuine purpose.
VERDICT: It doesn't stand-out in the slightest, and it isn't funny at all, but Cheaper by the Dozen is unquestionably a charming and fun film that the whole family can enjoy.

As a movie, it stinks. As a flick to watch if you're like 10, then it's entertaining.

Steve Martin is not funny. Write that down.

Cheaper by the dozen was a great movie to watch if you are looking for humor and family values. While the family faces problems when moving to a new place and having the parents trying to handle everything at once it becomes too much and forces them to take a step back and remember what really matters to them. Family is a huge theme and therefore something that is made important throughout the movie and something that is made important to the viewer. Overall this was a great movie to watch!

A boring ill timed comedy with lazy gags and a boring story to go with it. Skip this movie you'll be glad you did.

The kids are extremely annoying! That's my number one complaint for this movie. Although Steve Martin can be funny at times, he wasn't really the one I was laughing at. Ashton Cutcher did that for me. I still don't know if his character was intentionally funny or not, because he's supposed to be a real jerk. It's really not the best family comedy (mostly because the kids stress me out) but, for what it is, it's pretty harmless.

Ok but it's predictable and most of the laughs are silly and nothing new.

A fun and entertaining family film with Steve Martin. I recommend it.

Football coach and father of twelve moves his family and finds that nobody is happy. The comedy is forced and every one of the children are a stock character not worth caring about (i.e. the jock, the princess, the nerd, the trickster).

This is a funny movie Steve Martin is hilarious as all ways and this will make a good funny movie! So if you like funny movies see this one
½ February 12, 2016
This is a movie that has a genuinely warm heart. It's funny and has a surprising emotional touch that makes it worthwhile. It's not a masterpiece or anything but it's a movie that'll put a smile on your face and has a unique premise.
