Plot Summary
Tom Baker (Steve Martin) and his wife, Kate (Bonnie Hunt), take their children for what they hope will be a relaxing summer at a lakeside resort. When the Bakers end up with the shoddiest unit imaginable, a clueless but well-meaning Tom struggles to repair it himself. To make matters worse, Tom's old nemesis -- Jimmy Murtaugh (Eugene Levy) -- and his similarly gigantic family appear on the scene and engage the Bakers in a not-so-friendly rivalry that threatens to spoil their trip.

  • There's something pernicious about a toxic mix of sitcom and snickering sex jokes getting packaged and effectively sold as wholesome fun for the family. show more

  • A textbook example of how not to mess with success, Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is every bit as forced, synthetic, banal and mawkish as the first edition. show more

  • What I liked the most about the second "Dozen," was another performance, the one by Alyson Stoner as their daughter Sarah. As a girl poised on the first scary steps of adolescence, she finds the kind of vulnerability and shy hope that Reese Witherspoon projected in "The Man in the Moon." show more
