Cheaper by the Dozen

6 years, 9 months ago at Apr 17 4:18
I cannot muster up much in the way of poisoned-pen enthusiasm for this one, in fact, I cannot muster up much of anything for it. Cheaper by the Dozen sticks its three major stars in thankless roles, has them acting out less than amusing vignettes, and feels much longer than its meager 85 minutes. ย  This was once considered a crown jewel of family entertainment, and I suppose changing tastes ha... read more

Forget the mediocre Steve Martin remake, this film is the Cheaper By the Dozen to see. Jeannie Crain is a little too old for her role as the oldest daughter that I have to agree with. The rest however is delightful entertainment. There is nothing hilarious here, but some lines and scenes are funny and very pleasant, plus some moments are touching. The film looks great, has a beautiful soundtrack a... read more

(OK) So effective, as almost all Walter Lang films. Webb is excellent and supports wverything, even the strange tonsils scene, the bathing illustration scene. A tragic climax ends with a monstruos patiarch and redeems him...

“Forget the mediocre Steve Martin remake, this film is the Cheaper By the Dozen to see. Jeannie Crain is a little too old for her role as the oldest daughter that I have to agree with. The rest however is delightful entertainment. There is nothing hilarious here, but some lines and scenes are funny and very pleasant, plus some moments are touching. The film looks great, has a beautiful soundtrack and a story to warm the heart, and it has a script that has its humorous and sweet parts. The film is short but not too short, and it is snappily paced. The children are very believable, Myrna Loy doesn't have as much to do but is suitably warm and sympathetic and Clifton Webb is absolutely wonderful. All in all, still a joy. 8/10 Bethany Cox” read more

"A mild family movie with a raucous nature. A fun film that really didn't add much to the evolution of cinema, in a year where there was much to be found."

Cheaper by the Dozen

“I cannot muster up much in the way of poisoned-pen enthusiasm for this one, in fact, I cannot muster up much of anything for it. Cheaper by the Dozen sticks its three major stars in thankless roles, has them acting out less than amusing vignettes, and feels much longer than its meager 85 minutes. ย  This was once considered a crown jewel of family entertainment, and I suppose changing tastes have rendered it a dated, faded relic of a by-gone era. Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy are parents to a never-ending brood of overly precocious brats, with Jeanne Crain stuck in the blandest role of her career as the narrator and eldest daughter. The only time Crain gets to emote is when she understandably goes into lusty contortions over the dreamy Craig Hill throughout the film. ย  Other than that,” read more
