Cheaper by the Dozen 2

Director: Adam Shankman
Year: 2006
Stars: Steve Martin, Eugene Levy, Bonnie Hunt

This isn't funny. I'm pretty sure it's meant to be, but it's not. Mind you, I'm also sure it's meant to be good, and it's not really that either. When the scenes you are enjoying most in a bad Hollywood movie are the really cheesy ones, it hasn't worked.

The premise is that a family with 12 kids go on holiday to the lake, to reminisce about the past. Clearly, dad (Steve Martin) is feeling old - and has some scores to settle with a face from his past. Clearly meant to be a star vehicle for Steve Martin, quite frankly, he's seen better days. And been in much funnier films.

Rating: 1 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
