Cheaper indeed.

From the poster for Cheaper By the Dozen 2:

Normally I wouldn't take pot shots at a movie as unapologetically stupid as this one is, but seriously, what are they talking about? Watch out for what? The movie doesn't even take place during Christmas, they're at a summer camp or something in the trailer. Why isn't the tag line "It's beginning to look a lot like... Cheaper by the Dozen 2!" or "On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me... Cheaper by the Dozen 2!" or even "Good King Wenceslas looked out on the feast of Stephen, something something, Cheaper by the Dozen 2."

Aside from that, the movie should either be called Even Cheaper by the Dozen or Cheaper by the Baker's Dozen. Or you know, shouldn't have been made at all.

Gotta love Steve, though.

You know I just saw that ad today & thought, "Hey, that doesn't make any - ah - who cares?". Will cares, internet. Will cares.

I have always had the hots for Bonnie Hunt.

Evidently, Steve was originally against that as the tagline. He wanted it to read: "This movie will blow your fucking head off, you fucking family haters. Stay the fuck away from my hot, big family!"

Bonnie was on Steve's side and they replaced her with a robot.
