A cast of A-list Hollywood superstars led by Martin captures the [predictable] bedlam and farcical experience of a 12-children household – light on plotting & could’ve used more laughs beyond career-sacrifice, but a feel-good family film with humanization that will hit its target demographic. 5/10.
Full Review Coming Soon
Plot Synopsis: Tom (Steve Martin) and Kate Baker (Bonnie Hunt) have compromised their careers to raise 12 children. Tom coaches a high-school football team, while Kate has retired from journalism to raise the family. Things change when Tom is offered a college coaching job in a new city at the same time a publisher buys Kate’s parenting memoir. After moving, Kate goes on a book tour, leaving Tom in charge of the children, who — already unhappy about relocating — plunge the household into chaos.
