Consensus: A sequel to a remake, Cheaper 2 wastes its solid cast in scenes of over-the-top, predictable humor.

Andrea Gronvall
Chicago Reader

There's a discernible lack of enthusiasm from almost everyone involved, and Duff, who's gone from wholesome to haggard in two short years, is flat-out scary.

A family fantasy that plays at being happy and picture-perfect but primarily comes off as fake and dismayingly unfunny.

Joshua Starnes

Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is so incredibly bland and by the numbers it's painful to watch ... it's just a collection of unfunny moments that are both uninteresting and annoying.

This is definitely a family trip to stay home and skip.

I wonder how many meetings they had before they came up with that title. And didn't we just see this movie a couple of weeks ago, and wasn't it called Yours, Mine and Ours?

Paul Chambers

I was convinced I was going to hate this film. But, it didn't bug me as much as I thought it would.

Rolling Stone

There's something pernicious about a toxic mix of sitcom and snickering sex jokes getting packaged and effectively sold as wholesome fun for the family.

Randy Cordova
Arizona Republic

It aims to be pleasant and good-natured, which it is. There are enough laughs scattered throughout to keep everything moderately amusing, and the cast is likeable.

Cinema Crazed

I think it should be considered child abuse to inflict this tripe upon children.
