The best performance in Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is by an actress you've probably never heard of: 11-year-old Alyson Stoner, who plays Sarah, one of twelve children of Tom and Kate Baker (Steve Martin, Bowfinger , and Bonnie Hunt, Return to Me ). The movie follows the popular clan of the previous remake of Cheaper by the Dozen as they go to a camp in the mountains, where Tom renews his rivalry with Jimmy Murtaugh (Eugene Levy, Bringing Down the House ). To the movie's credit, it doesn't quite degenerate into a National Lampoon's Vacation knock-off, though it comes perilously close. But thanks to the grace of Bonnie Hunt and general good spirits of the cast of kids (including Tom Welling, Smallville ; Hilary Duff, The Perfect Man , who in some scenes becomes uncomfortably Lolita-esque; and Piper Perabo, Coyote Ugly , among others), this unnecessary sequel manages to remain enjoyable to anyone with a taste for broad family movies. But Stoner--as a tomboy getting her first crush--brings considerable charisma to her generically-written part, and her scenes give the movie a much-needed emotional lift. Otherwise, it's a movie in which Carmen Electra plays the voice of reason (in a series of tight-fitting tops). --Bret Fetzer.

Cheaper By The Dozen 2 is the hilarious and amazing sequel to Cheaper By The Dozen. In this film, the Baker family goes on what was meant to be a nice, relaxing family vacation but turns into complete chaos and competition with another family who are also on vacation. This movie even features the fantastic actor Eugene Levy, who is actually from Hamilton, Ontario. This sequel might actually be even funnier than the first movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good laugh and family movie. Rating 5/5 stars.

What are all you pessimists talking about?? I come from a family of seven and honestly, this is just an exaggerated version of what goes on inside my house which makes it pretty damn good!

A travesty of the original movie, which had the great actor Clifton Webb as the main (and real) character.

Unless you absolutely loved the first one, I would suggest you skip this. It is a dreadful piece of garbage.

My daughter loves these movies as being a single child allows her to dream what it would be like to be from a bigger family.

Lorraine Baker: Still smells the same. Old gross stuff, dead animals, and murky lake water.
Tom Baker: It's called fresh air sweetie.
