Cheaper by the Dozen

3 years, 3 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.   This was once considered a crown jewel of family entertainment, and I suppose changing tastes ha... read more

Best Films of 1950 (26 movies items)

"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.   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.   Other than that,” read more
