Kate 'Mom' Baker:
Honey you actually bought that shirt?
Hey every dad is entitled to one hideous shirt, and one horrible sweater. It's part of the dad code.

This move does have a good message and will probably be fun for the whole family, but do not expect a gut-buster.
In 'Cheaper by the Dozen 2' Steve Martin plays Tom Baker, a dad with 12 kids. Now that they are beginning to grow up, he wants to have one last family trip to Lake Winnetka. But things have changed; most of Lake Winnetka has been bought up by Jimmy Murtaugh (Eugene Levy). The Murtaughs are old rivals of the Bakers and the competition bug is sparked between Tom and Jimmy. Now both families are pulled into a rivalry among dads. But can they ever grow up?
This is a fun family movie and about the same as the original. I think the laughs are few and far between. I have come to expect a lot out of Eugene Levy. Unfortunately, he does not deliver the comedic performance I have come to expect. Steve Martin is not bad, but not great either.
This move does have a good message and will probably be fun for the whole family, but do not expect a gut-buster. It will be more of a tear-jerker.
