Product Description

Comedy superstar Steve Martin (Bringing Down The House) and film favourite Bonnie Hunt (Jerry Maguire) team up in this hilarious tale of two hard-working parents trying to manage careers and a household – amid the chaos of raising twelve rambunctious kids. With a crowd-pleasing supporting cast, including rising young stars Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire) and Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly), this heart-warming hit comedy delivers super-sized fun and laughs by the dozen!

From Amazon.co.uk

Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt corral a wild herd of rampaging children in Cheaper by the Dozen, an enjoyable family flick. When Kate Baker (Hunt) gets a book deal for her chronicle of their abundant family life, she also gets drawn into a book tour--leaving Tom (Martin) to run the house and cope with his new, high-pressure job as a football coach. Naturally, chaos erupts, bringing the family to the brink of meltdown. Cheaper by the Dozen is not a great movie or an important movie or even a surprising movie, but it is a warm-hearted crowd-pleaser. The Bakers' family life is a bit idealised and antiseptic, but anyone looking for an escape from their own less-ideal family lives won't mind. Also featuring Tom Welling, Hilary Duff, Piper Perabo and an uncredited Ashton Kutcher. --Bret Fetzer

Cheaper by the Dozen is a better than average family comedy. It's hardly ground-breaking stuff, but it's a pleasant way to pass the time all the same. The basic premise of the film is this: Tom (Steve Martin) and his wife Kate (Bonnie Hunt) decide to move from their small, yet much-loved country home into a larger house. Their twelve children however, aren't too keen on the idea. They begin to cause all kinds of mischief, and when Kate leaves for New York for two weeks, Tom is left with the overwhelming task of taking care of the brood.
There are some great scenes in the film, in particular the occasion when the younger children decide to split up their eldest sister Norah (Piper Perabo) and her boyfriend Hank (Ashton Kutcher). They soak Hank's underwear in meat, then watch with glee as every dog in the neighbourhood is drawn to the tempting smell of the item. I think it would be fair to say that Cheaper by the Dozen relies more on slapstick gags than witty repotoire, and is therefore more suited to a younger audience.
Due to the fact that there are fourteen main characters within the film, I frequently found it difficult not only to remember their names, but also to follow exactly what was going on. Saying that however, most of the younger children have small roles, whilst the likes of Charlie (Smallville's Tom Welling) and Lorraine (Hilary Duff) take the more challenging roles of angst-ridden teenagers. The film contains many cliches: the well-behaved boy next door (who the brood soon corrupt), the secret passages in the family's huge house, and Kevin, the odd sibling out, who must prove himself to his family.
Directed by Shawn Levy ('Just Married' and 'Big Fat Liar'), the film is not a bad one.

The storyline is basically about a family with 12 kids ranging from 22 to 3. years old and they live in a country town but dad (steve Martin) gets his dream job as a couch to a rugby team so they move back to the city. His Wife writes a book about raising twlve kids and she goes on a book tour which leaves tom (steve) looking after the kids and coping with a new job, which he finds very hard he realises what his wife does and puts up with every day looking after twelve kids, keeping house clean, cooking homework etc aint easy. It is a very funny film a mixture between problem child and three men and a baby. Although its basically a comedy it also shows how kids cope with moving to the city ie: what problems they face. I brought my neice to see this and we both enjoyed immensly. My verdict great all round family film you would watch again and again.

This film is well worth watching. Its not just the storyline that makes the film a laugh but the characters themselves.They manage to tell the story about an extrodinarily large family moving to another place where they feel that they dont fit in and start having a few problems out of the family and in it!
This film is great for all ages and should not be missed.

The Bakers, a family of 12, move from small-town Illinois to the big city.
Cheaper by the Dozen serves a lot of laughs and fun and entertainment. All of the actors are great, and all of the kids did a very good job. It is about Tom Baker (Steve Martin), who lives with his wife (Bonnie Hunt), and his 11 kids (that's nuts!) in the country town of Midway, and his twelfth daughter Nora (Piper Perabo) is living with her boyfriend (Asthon Kutcher) in Chicago. Then, Tom is offered a big job of a football coach, so he moves the entire family to Chicago. Then, his wife gets a publishing offer for her book about her family, and ends up leaving the house for 2 weeks. This leaves Tom with a whole house full of chaos. This movie had some funny incidents and captured the chaos of having twelve kids in your house. It was entertaining and kept you laughing. I give Cheaper by the Dozen a 10/10.

When i saw this being advertized i thought, boring. But then me and my family went to see it as a treat and i found it absolutly hilarious. Tom (Steve Martin) and Kate Baker (Bonnie Hunt) are the parents of 12 children. They live in the midlands in america but then Tom is offered a new job 3 hours away from where they live. So after hours of arguing with the children who don't want to move house, they eventually move on Tom and Kate's decision. They move but the children hate it there. Although they do have a good laugh when they soak Nora's (Piper Perabo) boyfreinds pants in meat which kind of gets the dog excited, and bites where the smell comes from. But then their mum (Kate) is offered a book tour with her recent book 'Cheaper by the Dozen' and that leaves Tom alone with the kids which he has never done because his wife has always been the one who looks after them. Tom makes her go, but chaos occurs in the house. While being coach of a 3rd division football team and being the coach of 11 sons and daughters (Nora lives with her boyfriend , Hank) he starts to realize he has to do something about it. He tries to get help, but when they hear the number 12 they just put the phone down. The mum finds out whats going on and comes home. Mark gets so fed up, he runs away. Will he be found? Will the family cope? This is a hilarious film for all the family. A good cast aswell including Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt, Tom Welling, Piper Perabo, Aston Kutcher and Hilary Duff. You will enjoy this and find it funny............ definitly get this!
