Cheaper by the Studio


Inexplicably, Twentieth Century Fox has released a sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen, the 2003 film remake that showed us that Steve Martin clearly has a price and will sell out, regardless of the project. I love Steve Martin, but I was so offended by the shoddy production values in the first film, which revealed in the theater that a major studio can put out a film in which the boom microphone appears on multiple occasions throughout the course of the movie. Also, although not noticed at the time, I found a link on the Internet Movie Database, which lists all the other goofs in the movie. The site has also showed that the film made $136 million domestically, which explains the sequel.

Anyway, the best quote I have seen so far is from the Sacramento Union: 'Cheaper By The Dozen 2' is Lousier By The Bushel. If anyone goes to see it, let me know if you can see the boom.

I wondered if this would be any good. Sad to say we now see all the best scenes on the previews... hate that!

I think Steve Martin is hysterical. I also am a HUGE Gene Wilder fan and Marty Feldman but sadly he is gone.
