Shawn Levy directs the family-oriented comedy Cheaper by the Dozen, a loose remake of the 1950 film starring Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy, which was itself based on a novel. Tom (Steve Martin) and Kate Baker (Bonnie Hunt) have made many sacrifices in their professional lives in order to raise their 12 children. When Tom is offered a job as a Division I college football coach, he moves the entire pack to a suburb of Chicago. This move shakes up the whole family, especially when Kate's memoirs get published and she takes off on a book tour. The lack of parental guidance creates problems for all the Baker kids, particularly handsome jock Charlie (Tom Welling), fashion plate Lorraine (Hilary Duff), and grown child Nora (Piper Perabo). Ashton Kucher stars in a cameo role as Nora's actor boyfriend, Hank.

This is a wonderful movie. When i first saw this movie i loved it. I bought this movie 4 days after i saw it. It is fun, entertaining, hilarious and great film. Steve martin and Bonnie Hunt do a wonderful job in this film so does the rest of the actors in this film. It teaches about family and things that a family goes through. It taught and showed me what is like when parents have 12 children. I recommed this movie to everyone young or old. You won't be disappointed.
This is definitely a family movie! I took my 7 year old son and 8 year old daughter to see it and they did not move. If you only see one family movie a year - this one is it!
I think taht this was the most entertainign movie that i've seen all year. It's funny without being innopropreate.(believe me, it's hard to find movies like that.) it's definately something for the family.
I think that Cheaper by the Dozen was a very good movie. It shows many aspects of a real family. No family is perfect, but that's what makes a real family. You all make your mistakes, but you learn from them. The cast and crew were awesome!! I really love Alyson Stoner. She is an amazing friend. I really love being her friend. She did a really good job in it. I also love her part in the awesome sequel Cheaper by the Dozen 2. Overall, I think the movie is recommended.
Comlete family fun! Do I need say more?
This movie is a really great movie. It is the perfect home movie. I think that those people who say that this is a bad Brady Bunch episode with way to many kids are sadly mistaken. This is a must see for everyone.
This movie is the best best best movie ever i owned it the 1st or 2nd day it is the best family movie ever and i know what it is like to have 12 kids in your family well i have 11 brothers and sisters it is great because everyone in my family loved it. I have a sister about Nora age and i am 12 my mom had 2 sets of twim instead of fraturnal twins thank you so much for makeing this movie it is the best.
This Cheaper by the Dozen needs improvement, to be more like the Cheaper by the Dozen (1950) and the book.
This movie really rocks!!! Awesome!!! Hilarious!!! Cool!!! Great!!! Brilliant!!! Entertaining!!! This is the family movie of the year.
This movie is so funny
This is the best movie ever my whole family loved it i have 3 sisters and 1 baby brother and well my mom dad and sisters loved it soooooooooo much we own it now we have owned it since the 2nd day it came out on dvd so thank you soooooooooooo much for making this movie it is the best movie ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone will LOVE this movie! I laughed and laughed and laughed! Hilary Duff made this movie EXTREMELY FUNNY! HA HA! THis will keep little kids and adults entertained and on there backs laughing!
Cheaper by the Dozen was a really fun movie to watch. The actors acting out all 12 children couldn’t have been better. They all captivated the ways a real child their age would act and that made the movie grand. You’ll also get a kick out of the things these children do! Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt were really impressive too. I liked the story line and thought that a real child’s life in any family could go through a similar situation. Overall, the movie was really cute and everyone should think about seeing it just once. Prepare to be surprised! They use a sister as a human dartboard. And the darts aren’t plastic if you were wondering!
I love this movie. I saw it in theatres and I loved it. Some bits were so funny and I mainly saw it because of Hilary Duff! Hilary was great in the movie and my little brother was laughing so hard. Great movie. A (8/10)
This is one of my favorite movie in the whole wide world. Im going to buy the movie when it comes out on DVD.
This movie was the best my whole family loved it. This is a grate family film
The movie titled 'CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN' is one of my all time favorite movie. I remeber when I went to go see this on MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY. I thought STEEVE MARTIN did an exellent job on this movie. I would highly recommend this movie in my library & it's definitly evan better then 'LEAP OF FAITH'.
