This movie is not a remake and it is not based on the book by Frank Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Carey. The only similarity is the number of children. That is my main objection. I loved the book and the movie with Clifton Webb. I was looking forward to a new version of the real story. I was very disappointed that the entire story was changed. This movie was not based on the book any more than The Sound of Music was based on the story of the Jackson family.
They could have added one more child ( a baby girl) and called it "Bakers Dozen" and not said it was based on the book because it absolutely was not.
I don't care for movies about smart mouth kids who can't behave.
