Didn't find most of the humor funny and the rest felt too much like a by-the-numbers film.

There is some slapstick humor and cheap jokes that don't work, but the general energy and charm of this family comedy makes it funnier and wittier than expected. Steve Martin seems at home as a harried father of 12 and anchors the film.

Amiable enough family flick with a few laughs, a lot of heart-warming and pretty much the perfect picture of a 12-person family (what, no rampant drug use or promiscuity!? Damn!) Yes, it's idealized and too perky, but it's not that bad.

Tom (Steve Martin) and Kate Baker (Bonnie Hunt) have a Baker's dozen--children, that is. When Tom, a football coach, gets a job offer to coach a college football team just outside of Chicago, and Kate's book about raising 12 children finally gets a publishing offer, they see bright things for their future. The only problem is that their 12 children do not want to move from their rural Illinois home, and things become nearly disastrous when Kate has to leave for a couple weeks to promote her book. Over all this is a really good family film that does give some gracious nods to the original movie from 1950. If you need a good kids movie this one will be a decent choice.
