Movie Reviews

Cheaper by the Dozen/Belles on Their Toes
L. Lynes | Alta Loma, CA USA | 10/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A wonderful story based on a real family with 12 children. It shows the changing times in the early 1900s--shorter skirts, shorter hair, "modern" thinking--against the "old set" ways, and the strength of family members supporting each other. It is funny, touching, sad and heartening. I loved them both. (The books are great too!)"
Both of these movies

"I must say that I grew up watching both of these cheaper by the dozen movies (the other being bells on their toes), and they tell the real story of this family, not the newer version. The newer version with Steve Martin is silly, and has nothing to do with the real family. It's all Hollywood. Watch these two movies first, than compare to the newer ones, and you'll see the difference. The new ones are all about disrespect, which Father wouldn't of approved of back in the early 1900's, not to mention, the new version is in the now, not the early 1900's when this family really existed. This movie is close to the book, and is wonderfully acted. It's a must see in my library of DVD's."
The Older Version is the Better Choice
F. Rosenbaum | Abilene, TX | 06/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Clifton Webb was most often case in dramatic roles. In ""Cheaper by the Dozen"" we get to see Webb in his comedic best. The original version of this film surpasses the newer one for many reasons: 1)the adults in the original had a wisdom and dignity sadly lacking in the modern setting, 2)the work ethic of the Gilbreth children is enchanting in the original, and, finally, 3) touching on the subject of death in the original adds even more depth to the story. ""Bells on Their Toes"" is not as unexpected as the original, but knowing more history about the Gilbreth family and their amazing mother is a nice sequel. This DVD should be in every family video library."
Good family fun.

"I purchased this set of DVD's for my granddaughters, who had listened to an audio book of the novel Cheaper by the Dozen and had enjoyed it. They were excited to see the characters come to life and had many questions about life "back then". Both DVD's are a good choice for a night of family viewing."
