We have taken some photos of "Cheaper by the Dozen 2". They represent actual movie quality.
This movie is an excellent family movie for many reasons, includingsince it is about two families, and stuff happens to the two familiesthat could happen in real life to actual families. I have seen thefirst movie and really like both of these movie, they have really goodactors and actresses and the complete plot is really good. I have foundlots of laughs and really hilarious moments out of this movie. I thinkthat once you see this movie you will feel the same way about it. Ihave watched this many times and has still not gotten bored of this. If you are renting this on DVD or if you own it on DVD, you shoulddefinitely see the bonus features, even though there are not many ofthem they are really good! I definitely recommend seeing this movie!
Any movie that stars Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt can't be all bad, and this one isn't.
I found this filma s entertaing as the original. It's a good film for the whole family but it's not a great film to win any awards but it's a perfect family film. You know your not in for a great film but you'll watch it anyways and you'll enjoy it. The story is fun but not much happneds in the hour and half. The acting is good and there are laughs and corny moments. I actually enjoyed it as much as the first to make it a good sequal and I would actually like to see a third movie.
The good thing about this movie is that it was not so boring I couldn'twatch it. I went with my sister and our 9- and 6-year-old cousins. Onlythe 9-year-old, a girl, liked it. My 6-year-old cousin, a boy, wascomplaining about the movie for three hours after we left. Personally Ithink this movie was terrible. The acting was at least good, but thestory line gets a huge NO. The end was the cheesiest thing I'd everseen. I mean, like they would take a pregnant woman about to deliverany second on a canoe race. And oh yeah, of course she'll go into laborright then, and because of this everyone makes up and they're allfriends again. Right.
Cheaper By The Dozen 2 isn't really an outstanding sequel, and it'squite a forgettable one too. But it's all in good fun, and there arescenes which will make you laugh a lot, or at least chuckle or smile.The fact that the kids seem older now and some of them have seemed tochange isn't very pleasing, but throughout the film you'll come toterms with it.So the film takes place a while after the first film, the kids arebeginning to grow up, and many changes are taking place. TomBaker(Steve Martin)feels that the family are breaking apart, anddecides that it's time for one last family vacation at Lake Winnetka.Only does he know his old rival and his family are staying for thesummer, and haywire gets loose! The movie has one of the most competitive rivals, Jimmy Murtaugh(Eugene Levy), and the best thing is; you'll love to hate him! And isn'tthat what you should think of rivals to the main characters in a film?And of course, there is the lovable work of Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt,and all the other members of the cast.So, what I would say is that Cheaper By The Dozen 2 would certainly notbe for anyone who hasn't seen or was negative of it's Preceder. But I'dalso say for real Cheaper fans and people who love family films andsuch, it's a fun treat.
I saw this movie on DVD and I laughed more than I did then the firstfilm. The Bakers return to action but this time, the Bakers decide totake a trip to their old vacation spot. There, they get involved withthe rich family and they compete in a tournament. I thought the actingthe was great. Steve Martin returns as a goofball and the rest of theBaker gang acted well. The older kids looks more mature and they actedbetter than the first film. Eugene Levy also cracked me up. He is greatas the role of Mr. Murtagh. The script was written well, better thanthe first film. I recommend this film for everyone especially youngerchildren, but don't expect this film to be Oscar-worthy. I rate thisfilm a 9/10.
Steve martin plays a Mormon exile who has many wives and many more kidsin this family movie about the epic battle between fundamentalistMormons and Jews. Eugene levy plays a sensational role as a land ownerwho also has a lot of kids and a wife played by Carmen Electra. a keycontradiction i noticed in the film is that martin's wife is played bysomeone who was in jumanji whereas levy's wife was married to Dennisrodman. i will never understand the casting director's decision in thisregard. i also noticed that martin's oldest son is superman but herefuses to own up to his powers. you can easily understand this whenyou watch the part at the end where the familes have a tournament tosee who is genetically superior. tom welling is in the egg on a spoonrace and drops the egg and then trips and thusly falling to the ground;however, i have seen many episodes of smallville and i know for a factthat welling has impeccable balance and that his reflexes are so fastthat he could have caught that egg even after it fell. probably themoral of the story is that they have a pet rat who steals all theirstuff (another allusion to the common practices of Jewish people) andyet they find all the stolen stuff in a wall. it was very emotional anddare i say shakespearean.
My husband and I saw this in the theaters, and we laughed and laughed. Steve Martin and Eugene Levy play off each other in great comedic fashion as two competing dads. Why haven't these two been teamed together until now? Carmen Electra is good as Levy's surprisingly-compassionate trophy wife. Cheaper by the Dozen serves up plenty of sweet moments, but none that cross the line into syrupy schmaltz.
A cheerless sequel to an uninspired remake.
This is actually better than the first film, CBTD. Theunder-appreciated Bonnie Hunt is excellent but gets less screen timeand less opportunity to ad-lib, where she is at her best. In spite ofthe fact you can see the resolution of the plot coming at the end, youare still moved by it...very well done in that regard. Carmen Electrawas actually quite good as well. Eugene Levy was surprising in the roleof a "together" super dad. All of the kids did a great job in theirroles. As an aside, Hilary Duff has certainly made a mistake by gettingplastic surgery. Who convinced her it was a good idea? Steve Martin isbilled as the star and he was good but Bonnie Hunt appeals to me farmore as a comedian and an on-screen presence.
Wouldn't be writing this except someone wrote they expected "better" ofSteve Martin. Viewed Cheaper with my 7-year old grandson and we boththoroughly enjoyed it! On Casey's Laugh meter (1 for seriousstuff.....10 for extended laugh and giggles) he'd give it a 12. For me(going from 1 for dry eyes to 10 for Beaches syndrome) I'd give it a 3,which is occasional misty-eyed dabs driven by extended parentalempathy. Don't misunderstand, though. I also laughed as long and ashard as Casey.Please don't compare this Dozen with earlier makes or remakes. Unlessyou're also inclined to do the same thing with Willie Wonka and theChocolate Factory-Gene Wilder and WWCF-Johnny Depp. The former alight-hearted romp, the latter something very different......sodifferent a lot of us still aren't sure where it was coming from.The 1950's Dozen took place in the late 1800's. It too was wonderfulbut it recreates a bygone time and we view it more as observers. WithSteve and Bonnie's Dozen we are drawn in as participants.....if onlyrooting form them instead of the Murtaughs. Steve and Bonnie's Dozen isa remake/follow up ONLY to the very funny, wonderfully updated CheaperBy the Dozen released in 2003 with who else? Steve Martin and BonnieHunt. Leave your comparisons at home.If you could pick your parents, why not Steve and Bonnie? Mute thevolume and watch Bonnie's eyes (which I could do so well in Casey'schosen 5th row from the screen!). And I would admonish the person whofelt Steve could have done better....been funnier.........It'spossible. But he played this one from the heart. The secret toparenting--on screen or off--is learning how to hold on to yourchild.......while letting them go.
i loved cheaper by the dozen 2 is a great family flick its better than the first 10/10
This review is from: Cheaper By The Dozen 2 (Amazon Instant Video) With so many sequels being giving nothing but the same cast with a trite story line CBtD 2 is still pointing out good life lessons in a hilarious way.
This review is from: Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (DVD) Product came as specified and in perfect condition. Thanks to the seller for packing it well. This was a hard to find DVD so glad to find it on Amazon. The family had so much fun revisting this classic. Thanks!
In 'Cheaper by the Dozen 2' Steve Martin plays Tom Baker, a dad with 12kids. Now that they are beginning to grow up, he wants to have one lastfamily trip to Lake Winnetka. But things have changed; most of LakeWinnetka has been bought up by Jimmy Murtaugh (Eugene Levy). TheMurtaughs are old rivals of the Bakers and the competition bug issparked between Tom and Jimmy. Now both families are pulled into arivalry among dads. But can they ever grow up? This is a fun family movie and about the same as the original. I thinkthe laughs are few and far between. I have come to expect a lot out ofEugene Levy. Unfortunately, he does not deliver the comedic performanceI have come to expect. Steve Martin is not bad, but not great either.This move does have a good message and will probably be fun for thewhole family, but do not expect a gut-buster. It will be more of atear-jerker.
This is a watchable but fairly disappointing sequel to 'Cheaper By TheDozen'. The contrived plot has Steve Martin and his family going on avacation and getting into a rivalry with Eugene Levy's family. It'sreally that simple. All the characters are clichÃ©s and the weakmaterial neuters both Eugene Levy and Steve Martin. Despite limitedlaughs, the film is watchable as a family movie with everyone learningsome familiar life lessons. Carmen Electra is surprisingly decent in abrief role. The film is watchable at home specially if you have kids.If not, than better avoid.Overall 4/10
This review is from: Cheaper By The Dozen 2 (Amazon Instant Video) My grandchildren love this movie, though Cheaper By the Dozen (the original) is their favorite. It's a fun movie and one that does not offend children nor adults.
Fun family movie for the season. Similar to the first one, this one issimply humorous good natured fun. If you are looking for a "plot" thisis not the movie for you. If you are looking for an easy don't have touse your mind fun with light chuckles kind of show, this is for you. Itis what it was intended to be and in that regard it is a very goodmovie - it was not designed, written or directed to be a blockbuster ofthe ages. If you want a great movie to take your younger kids to (nottoo young), or you just want to sit back and enjoy some light humourfrom the main adult actors... you get the point. cheezy endings arewhat ALL of these movies have :)cheers
This is a fun, predictable, good-for-the-family comedy with familiar-feeling jokes and mayhem. The entire cast returns for the family's trip to the mountain lake cabin they used to go to each year. Once there, Steve Martin resumes his rivalry with the father of another large family, played by Eugene Levy, largely wasted in this role. The jokes are clean and broad, parents will see most of them coming a mile away, but children under 12 will probably enjoy it. A daughter goes on her first date, it's handled very well, sweet and innocent as first dates should be. There is a good discussion between her and the mother about being liked for yourself.This would be a great movie to watch with your kids, and could start discussions on dating, being yourself, and the importance of family. This isn't one I plan to buy right now, but maybe later on. If you enjoyed the first one, this one is at least worth renting.
Thank goodness this one is just so so so much better than the remake of"Yours Mine and Ours", that one is inevitably going to compare "Cheaperby the Dozen 2" to, given that both stories claim to involve comedy andrather large families.The difference? "Cheaper by the Dozen" is a much better movie, at thevery least due to it's significantly lower rating on the Cringing AtOverbaked Cheesiness Scale. Acting, storyline, are much more realisticand believable in this movie, and make the characters very sweet andendearing to the audience. Can't say the same about "Yours, mine andours", unfortunately.Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt, and Eugene Levy really make this show great.It's as if the parts were written just for them - if you try to imagineother actors playing the same roles, the resulting movie could've beendisastrous.If you havekids/grandkids/siblings/cousins/rathersmallhyperactivechildren that youneed to bring to the movies this Christmas, you might as well bringthem to this one: it's fairly good.
