At the beginning of the movie, Kate reveals the title of her new book to be "Cheaper By The Dozen". Although this movie is loosely based on a book by that title about a real-life family, the book was written by one of the sons, Frank B. Gilbreth Jr., along with his sister, Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. Although this film is based on that same book that inspired the 1950 film (Cheaper by the Dozen (1950)), the only element it retains from the original is the idea of there being 12 children in one family. Even the names of the characters are changed. See more »

Cheaper By The Dozen is a great family fun movie. It is about a large family, (The Bakers') who have twelve children and they have to juggle their careers and being a parent. They move from their small old house to a very large house in a suburban street because the father (Martin) gets a great job opportunity that would be following his life long dream, but at the same time his wife (Hunt) also gets a great chance at her dream of being a published writer and she has to travel and be away from her kids. The comedy is very fun and exciting as the children like to plot against their eldest sister's (Perabo) boyfriend Hank (Kutcher) and his "money making face".
Hank is a very funny character and he brightens up this fun-filled comedy with his witty comments and his selfish attitude.
In the end the family realise that having money doesn't necessarily make you happier.
This movie was good and would have been even better if Hank was in it more as he brightens this light - hearted comedy.
