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.
