Cheaper by The Dozen 2
Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is a 2005 American comedy film that is a sequel to the 2003 film Cheaper by the Dozen. It was produced by 20th Century Fox. It was released on December 21, 2005 to extremely negative reviews.
Feeling that their family is separating as the children get older, Tom and Kate Baker decide to take their 12 children on one last family vacation at Lake Winnetka in Wisconsin, where they meet Jimmy Murtagh (Eugene Levy) and his 8 children.
Why It Sucks
- Tom has been flanderized. He went from a nice and caring father in the first film to a manic, highly-competitive father.
- Eugene Levy can't really act that well, hence why he's not in many movies today.
- It completely ignores the events of the first film.
- It relies too hard on slapstick comedy.
- Mark Baker barely gets screen time.
- Typical standard Family vs. Family plot.
- Dylan Shank, who appeared in the first film is absent.
- Carmen Electra is one of the best things about this movie.
- Mark isn't treated as badly as he was in the first movie.
- Sarah Baker is given a decent amount of screen time and character development.
- Like the first film the child acting is pretty good.
Cheaper by The Dozen 2 received much worse reviews than its predecessor. It currently holds a 6% on Rotten Tomatoes.
