An average movie

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but since it starred Steve Martin, I thought I should give it a try. Through the years, I kept trying with Steve Martin, I gave him the benefit of the doubt so many times but, eventually, I came to conclusion that most of his movies are actually rather worthless. I mean, he has made a few good movies, not many though, and I’m pretty sure I ... read more

I did like this movie in general. There are some funny moments and the performances are spirited from the entire cast. Unfortunately, although as a remake it is acceptable it does have its weak spots. I didn't feel as though it had the charm of the original, by that I mean that doesn't quite have the irreverence and likability that made the original so endearing. There are some pacing problems and... read more

The Baker brood moves to Chicago after patriarch Tom gets a job coaching football at Northwestern University, forcing his writer wife, Mary, and the couple's 12 children to make a major adjustment. The transition works well until work demands pull the parents away from home, leaving the kids bored.

“I did like this movie in general. There are some funny moments and the performances are spirited from the entire cast.

I didn't feel as though it had the charm of the original, by that I mean that doesn't quite have the irreverence and likability that made the original so endearing. There are some pacing problems and major discrepancies in the screenplay, plus the direction wasn't as strong as it could have been. On the whole though, it is not too bad. There is some nice scenery and camera work. The performances from the cast are fun; Steve Martin does very well in the title role, and the ensemble of children have strong chemistry. And despite the weak script, there are some funny moments, like the mince-in-t” read more

Film Franchise Takes (160 movies items)

" Characters created by: Frank B. Gilbreth, Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey Years in activity: 1950 - 1952, 2003 - 2005, 2021 Number of films: 5 Decent in series: The Steve Martin films, were kind of meh. My take on the series: I haven’t seen the original or the sequel, yet. The Steve Martin films, were harmless. And pretty much have been done before."

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2018 (140 movies items)

" It's loud and chaotic, but amidst the chaos it forgets to be actually funny. I've never been much of a Steve Martin fan and this film just cemented that fact even more. In addition to the lack of laughs, it's also overly schmaltzy and quite possibly on the wrong side when it comes to morals and the message it sends out, as it glorifies and ultimately lets disobedience win.

My Top 150 Favorite Comedies (150 movies items)

"Bonnie Hunt and Steve Martin play a couple of parents who've spawned 12 children and are trying to raise 'em right in the white bread portion of the American Dream. Cheaper By The Dozen is family formula flick with a heart that is down-to-earth enough that it avoids the typical sugary distance that has desensitized the genre in the last decade or so. IMO, it is a film that can almost be perceived as a poor man's Parenthood. Even though these are the type of movies that have pretty much covered"
