Since I've always wanted a big family with lots of siblings, I do enjoy movies featuring large families. I'm a die-hard Brady Bunch fan, and thought Cheaper by the Dozen was awesome-- both 1 and 2.
Having said that, the plot was totally unrealistic, with entirely too many chaos/disaster scenes that I guess were supposed to be funny. There was a lot of "fluff" and not much "stuff".
But because I really enjoy movies featuring large families, I "curved" this rating and gave it a 6-- Otherwise it would probably be a 1 or 2. Because from an unbiased point of view, it looked like something somebody slapped together this morning.
