"Cheaper By the Dozen", based on the real-life story of the Gilbreth family, follows them from Providence, Rhode Island to Montclair, New Jersey, and details the amusing anecdotes found in large families. Frank Gilbreth, Sr., was a pioneer in the field of motion study, and often used his family as guinea pigs (with amusing and sometimes embarrassing results). He resisted popular culture,railing against his daughters' desires for bobbed hair and cosmetics.Written by

In the movie, the last child born is a boy named "Robert", but in real life, the last Gilbreth child was a girl named "Jane". There was a son named Robert, but he was the second-to-last child born. See more »

Even though I think the remake may be funny, there is no comparison to the original. The actors were unique and cannot be duplicated. Even though the original came out before I was born, my parents introduced me to a lot of movies. I am glad they did because I know would have missed seeing these great actors.
