Cheaper by the Dozen is a well-known movie about a pretty large family known as the Bakers.  Tom and Kate have changed their careers and lifestyles to raise their 12 children. The Baker family ends up moving from their small town in Indiana when Tom gets offered a job coaching football in Evanston, Illinois and they decide to move his whole family there.

Kate, who has written her story into a book and hopes to get it picked up for publication, finally accomplishes her dream as  an author when her family is settled in their new home  15 years later . As she is getting ready to head to New York, she leaves Tom to manage the household while she is away. He starts to realize that he can’t necessarily handle the children by himself as they are getting in trouble at school and messing up the house. They were out of control to the point where Kate had to fly home from New York to reprimand them, destroying all hopes of her dreams.

Toward the end of the movie, the members of the family make amends and they learn to actually work together as a family. They learned the real meaning of family and what it is all about.

Overall, I believe that this movie was really good. I feel that what made it a good movie was the humor portrayed by the children I would recommend to anybody who is looking for a good family movie to watch in their free time. I think this movie taught a lesson to people on how your family can be dysfunctional but still love you no matter what happens or what your family fights about.
