CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Cheaper By the Dozen
features Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt in an amusing tale of challenges associated with taking on two demanding careers while raising 12 children. This film is not a true remake of the 1950 movie, Cheaper by the Dozen, as it does not detail the original Gilbreth family story but uses that movie’s original idea of the difficulties professionals engage when deciding to raise exceptionally large families in current times. Director Shawn Levy deserves credit for directing a good, family entertainment piece that is worth watching.
