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
