Almost as unnecessary a sequel as Baby Geniuses 2—but not nearly as funny—Cheaper by the Dozen 2 follows the gaggle to their old summertime getaway where the age-old rivalry between Tom (Steve Martin) and Jimmy (Eugene Levy, on par here with his pedophilic turn in the Olsen Twins' 2004 classic New York Minute) drags on. As expected, Steve Martin says things like "It's all good" and a dog humps Carmen Electra's leg. CBTD2 does hold a pleasant surprise, however—Hilary Duff now looks like a 35-year-old anorexic slut.

A tired retread of the maiden film in which the usual pratfalls ensue and the usual lessons are learned; there's really not much for anyone to do here, including the viewer. Final Grade: C-

Steve Martin and Eugene Levy have always done a great job together. This movie wasn't poor because of their acting, their acting was great, the script was the problem. The idea of the movie was good, but it was poorly written and conceived. 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. It was ok, but could have been a lot better.

Fun family movie

"Tom" (Steve Martin) and "Kate Baker" (Bonnie Hunt) are starting the part of parenthood that many parents dread -- their oldest kids are starting to enter adulthood and are beginning to move out of the house. And out of the two, "Tom" is taking the changes hardest since he is so close to his 12 children.

After the graduation party of their daughter "Lorraine" (Hillary Duff), "Tom" gets an idea for a family vacation at the lake they use to go to when the kids were younger.

However, when they get there, they have to deal with the highly competitive "Jimmy Murtaugh" (Eugene Levy) and family, many of which befriends the "Bakers," against "Tom" and "Jimmy's" wishes.

There are a bunch of comical moments in this film. Many are predictable as they are being set up, while others will o...
