Disgraced Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe is handed a new assignment: Protect the five Plummer kids from enemies of their recently deceased father -- a government scientist whose top-secret experiment remains in the kids' house.
Identical twins, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
The Bakers, a family of 14, move from small-town Illinois to the big city after Tom Baker gets his dream job to coach his alma mater's football team. Meanwhile, his wife also gets her dream of getting her book published. While she's away promoting the book, Tom has a hard time keeping the house in order while at the same time coaching his football team, as the once happy family starts falling apart. Written by
From oldest child to youngest child, the list of kids is: Nora (22), Charlie (17/18), Lorraine (14), Henry (12), Sarah (11), Jake (10), Mark (9), Jessica (7), Kim (7), Mike (6), Kyle (5), Nigel (5). In reality, Jacob Smith (Jake Baker) is 3 years older than Alyson Stoner, who plays his older sister Sarah Baker. As well, Morgan York (Kim Baker) is the same age as Alyson Stoner, and Forrest Landis, Blake Woodruff, and Liliana Mumy are all the same age when their characters are a year difference at least.

At the end when the family runs across the field to coach Baker, Charlie picks up one twin in each arm. In the next shot he picks up one twin again, but doesn't pick the other one up. See more »
Better Title: Cheaper to Make Because We Use a Dozen Commercials
In this G-d awful film (note: to enjoy this film a legal adult must either be brain-dead or intoxicated to the point of alcohol-induced blood poisoning), former humorist Steve Martin (he's not the least bit funny) plays a dad of 12 kids that do not look remotely like one another. Nor do any of them look like either of their space-alien parents. Dad gets his "dream job" as head football coach of his alma-mater and moves from your average farmhouse in Wisconsin (located somewhere in Canada) into a multi-million dollar mansion of a Chicago (also in Canada) suburb in a parallel universe. On this planet neighbor children don't look remotely like their parents either so it must be normal to mate with gorillas, donkeys, and farm animals in general. The everyday life shown to those duped into paying to watch this rubbish is shown. Such enormously "funny" lines as (paraphrasing): "I just Turtle-waxed my Chrysler LeBaron MXV Convertible", "Can you pass me the Kellogg's Special K cereal?", the Bekins moving van, "I don't have enough Kodak film for my Canon LRBB 35-mm camera" and so forth wanted to make me puke. Instead, I puked into the popcorn of the couple sitting next to me. But the absolute best part of this waste of Kodak XCVUYMX Wide-Screen Type R movie film are the two cameo appearances of the Motorola RSX boom microphone. Apparently the editors missed that part. Perhaps they were too busy counting their money from all the hundreds of product sponsors of this film to notice? For absolutely everyone on this planet - there is hope that we too could do, at a bare minimum, a better job of acting as well as writing than this bunch.
