New Movie Reviews

"Cheaper by the Dozen 2"

by Jason Rzucidlo
AmericaJR@AmericaJR.com

Steve Martin. Bonnie Hunt. Piper Perabo. Eugene Levy. Hilary Duff. (Comedy)

This is the second movie in the series. It is about a family of twelve and all of it's experiences. You see Hilary Duff graduating from high school in the beginning. Later, there is a feud between two rival families. You get to see both families try to out-do each other.

Steve Martin (Tom Baker) and Bonnie Hunt (Kate Baker) have 12 children. Whenever you have twelve children, you know there is bound to be madness. That's exactly what you find in this comedy. The family decides to spend the weekend at a house on a lake. Everyone wants to do something different. Their house is small and its needs a lot of work done to it.

The kids notice a nice house across the water. It is the home of the competitive Murtaugh's. Their house is filled with the latest gear including high speed internet, plasma TV's and more. They even have a nice waterslide that leads to the lake. The Baker kids are very jealous of them. They want to spend more time with the Murtaugh's than their own mom and dad.

One of the Baker girls has a crush on one of the Murtaugh boys. He had asked her out to a movie. Both dads ended up going to the same movie to watch what their kids were doing. It was a bad move on both fathers part.

Both families are put to the test with the camp contests. There was an egg-toss battle, three-legged race, volleyball and other field events. During the last competition between the families, one of the Bakers were pregnant. Her water leaked and they decided to stop the race.

The Baker's and the Murtaugh's came together. They decided to forget the silly feud and rush her to the nearest hospital. This movie describes the unity that is needed within a family.

I think this was a good movie. I believe it was better than the first movie in the series. If you are a Hilary Duff fan, I recommend it for you. You get to see more of her in this film than in the last one. There are a lot of famous people in this movie which makes it interesting. You can see Carmen Electra, Jaime King and Tom Welling in addition to the main cast.

This movie is based off the book by Frank B. Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey titled "Cheaper by the Dozen." It was published in 2002. At the end of the movie, they show outtakes. Those are very funny.

Another Point of View on "Cheaper by the Dozen 2"

by Ashley Woodcock

If you enjoyed Steven Martin's "Cheaper by the Dozen", then you're sure to enjoy "Cheaper by the Dozen 2". In this funny comedy, the Baker family takes a camping trip to Lake Winnetka. Lorraine and Charlie have graduated from high school and Nora is married and expecting a baby.

The trip starts out just fine, until they are invited to a party and meets up with Tom's old rival, Jimmy Maruagh. The two start of as if they are just regular old friends, then their kids start acting up. This brings up the yearly competition held at the lake on labor day weekend.

When they both agree to compete, they start a training camp for the kids. On game day both families tie. While in the middle of the tie breaker, Nora goes into labor, and ends up getting rushed to the ER. Both families are there awaiting for the new exciting delivery.

Steven Martin star, along with Bonnie Hunt, Piper Perabo, Eugene Levy, and Hilary Duff. I really enjoyed this movie. It was definately worth the $7 and I encourage you all to go out and see it. There are expected and unexpected scenes that make this film enjoyable.
