Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: Unfortunately… rather bad.

    ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’ undoubtedly has its heart in the right place but what a mess of an execution, they basically come up with as many messages as possible and cram them together – but there’s one problem, they forgot the glue! It’s just a sequence of points, as it culminates with a woeful, forced family drama.

    The cast make it slightly more watchable than it would’ve otherwise been, I will say that – they aren’t great, but are predominantly hindered by the lame dialogue and yawnful character development. Zach Braff and Gabrielle Union are a solid pairing, while Mykal-Michelle Harris and Leo A. Perry are the pick of the younger lot – I would’ve liked to have seen more of their characters, as those two definitely had the best comedic timing of the kids. Others I note: Talking Dead favourite Ron Funches and White Chicks alum Brittany Daniel.

    The only hero from this 2022 flick? Larry Sims. That dude went ham on Union’s hair – I’ve never noticed a character go through so many hairstyles before! Hope he got paid enough.

    I feel a tiny bit bad for disliking something that tries to come out meaningful, but man this is a cringefest. If you want a film adaptation of the 1948 novel, I’d recommend the 2003 remake with Steve Martin.
