The Baker's dozen are back, but this time, another super-sized clan is joining in on the fun. Get Kidzworld's review to find out if Cheaper By the Dozen 2 is worth your ten bucks.

Cheaper By the Dozen 2 - More Family Values

When Tom Baker (played by Steve Martin) finds out that pregnant daughter Nora (Piper Perabo) is moving to Houston with her husband, and daughter Lorraine (Hilary Duff) is jetting off to the Big Apple for an internship with a fashion mag, he decides to take everyone to Lake Winnetka for one last family vacation. Expecting to have a relaxing summer with the brood, Tom is in for a rude awakening when he runs into his long-time rival Jimmy Murtaugh (the hilarious dad from American Pie) and his clan of eight seemingly perfect kids.

Cheaper By the Dozen 2 - More Family Fun

Before the two dads can start a war of Olympic proportions, the Baker and Murtaugh kids strike up friendships - and more. When Sarah Baker and Eliot Murtaugh (played by Taylor Lautner) start crushin' on each other, Tom and Jimmy turn into spies and follow them on their dates, which leads to a ton of fun and laughs that all dads will relate to.

Cheaper By the Dozen 2 - More Family Feuds

Since when did kids become more mature than their 'rents? Instead of being the father figures that they should be, Tom and Jimmy act like brats as they constantly try to one-up each other! From one competiton to the next, their childhood rivalry isn't about to stop any time soon. It starts out funny, but turns seriously unfunny in a matter of minutes. The only other bummer of this movie is that Hilary Duff's role is more of a cameo, so we don't get to see much of her.

Cheaper By the Dozen 2 - DVD Features

The latest Cheaper By the Dozen DVD may not include a dozen extra features, but there are quite a few that you'll dig. From director commentary to a casting session with the Fox Movie Channel, there are plenty of fun things to keep you occupied long after the Tom Welling/Hilary Duff action has ended.

Cheaper By the Dozen 2 - Bottom Line

Cheaper By the Dozen 2 is a fun movie for the whole family, especially during the holidays. Just don't expect it to be a gut-buster cuz it's actually more of a tear-jerker.

I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.
