Cheaper by the Dozen

Watched “Cheaper by the Dozen“. It is a nice family movie, but I wish it would have benn done more like a comedy. There is a lot of humor, but it could have been so much more, especially with such actors as Steve Martin and Ashton Kutcher who can really deliver comedy.

The story was pretty straight forward, except for few minor details, like 12 kids in the family. Some places were overedited or underdone – there was a feeling of unnatural. Lots of kid stunts like inhouse hockey and stuff like that. I wish there were more of this too. Also the amount and combination of comedy and drama left me kind of puzzled. The mix was just odd.

In all the other regards it is a pretty average film. Barely 6 out of 10.
