Yours, Mine, and Ours - * * 1/2
I took Cameron to see this film because I knew it would make him laugh. And I was right.
This should have been named "Cheaper By the Dozen 2," but that sequel is coming soon. Dennis Quaid plays a Coast Guard Admiral and widower (I never quite bought it for some reason) who is searching for love, and just happens to have a lot of kids. Rene Russo plays a widow and just happens to have even more kids. Back in the day, they were the King and Queen of the Prom. Now they rekindle their lost love, and throw all the kids together. Of course the kids don't like each other and fight every chance they get.
The one thing I just could not get over was the house they moved into. It was an old lighthouse right on the water. But every time I saw it in a shot, it looked like it had been digitally altered to death. For example, sunsets become "the-most-gorgeous-sunset-you-have-ever-seen."
A good kids' movie, but I wouldn't pay theater prices to go see this film.
