Tom (Steve Martin) and Kate Baker (Bonnie Hunt) have made many sacrifices in their professional lives in order to raise their 12 children. When Tom is offered a job as a Division I college football coach, he moves the entire pack to a suburb of Chicago. This move shakes up the whole family, especially when Kate's memoirs get published and she takes off on a book tour. The lack of parental guidance creates problems for all the Baker kids, particularly handsome jock Charlie (Tom Welling), fashion plate Lorraine (Hilary Duff), and grown child Nora (Piper Perabo). Ashton Kucher stars in a cameo role as Nora's actor boyfriend, Hank. Andrea LeVasseur, RoviRead Less

Two parents, twelve kids? That's how to sum up the movie in four words. Sounds like it'd be very entertaining, yeah?
The answer to that: Funny at a few points, but it just gets too messy, repetitive, and dull.
It's a comedy, it's a drama. The flaw is that there is too much going on at once that when it comes to the drama aspect, it doesn't flow nicely into the movie. Why? Not enough character development. It gets OVER-dramatic... leaving the audience hanging.
Of course, there are quite a number of good name actors/actresses in it... Steve Martin, Tom Welling, Hilary Duff, and others... but overall... it was a disappointment... but I guess it's alright for a family movie night. Don't expect too much out of it otherwise.
