Over the weekend I was invited to my cousin’s birthday party. So me and my sister went to their house and had a great time. We ate pizza and ice cream cake and that kind of sweet stuff. We also watched “Cheaper By The Dozen 2” and i loved it. It was really funny and very real. There is so much drama in it and a lot of things people could relate their problems too.
“Cheaper By The Dozen 2” is about a Baker family that begins to undergo many changes, beginning with Lorraine (Hillary Duff) and her desire to go to study in New York. Their oldest daughter, Nora (Piper Perabo), is now married to Bud McNulty, and pregnant. But the couple intend to move to Houston Texas, Because of Bud’s new job promotion. Feeling that the family is breaking apart, as the children grow up and move away. Tom presents the entire family to take one last family vacation all together at Lake Winnetka. Tom’s old riva Jimmy Murtagh (Eugene Levy), and his large family are also there for the summer. Jimmy constantly flaunts his wealth and success to Tom as well of the accomplishments of his children constantly suggesting to Tom that the Baker children ae less successful because of Toms parenting style. The two family’s end up going against each other to prove which one is better. A fight that they will never forget.
What I like about this movie is how they took shots that made you wonder how they could actually do for real life. For example when Tom and Jimmy were both on a big log running on it without falling because they were actually outside and in water. I was also surprised with the fireworks. It was surprising to me because it was real fireworks blowing up a boat and everyone else in the movie watching it blow up.
I really loved the characters such as Tom and his “daughter” Sarah Baker because they are so funny. Tom always gets these funny expressions on his face that just crack me up. He also acts like a kid a lot. For example when he was over at Jimmy’s, he comes up to Sarah Baker and asks her to look at the view and as they are doing that he asks her to put meat under Jimmy’s chair pillow so that there dog could attack him in front of everyone at dinner. Sarah Baker is also very funny because when she’s mad, she’s mad but the way she acts just makes it even more funnier because she looks serious but the things she does while looking serious makes it funny.
I would recommend this movie to everyone. It’s really funny and it has to do with family and teaches you a little about how family is worth having. It is also a movie where you can just lay back and know that there won’t be something jumping out unexpectedly. When I watched it I got really excited for summer because it reminded me of summer. My cousins loved it as well even my nine-teen year old cousin laughed when she saw it. This movie is a “have to watch” movie.
