Steve Martin sequel for fans only

If you like Steve Martin (and I do in doses) then you’ll probably enjoy Cheaper By the Dozen 2 (Fox, €21.99).

If you like Steve Martin (and I do in doses) then you’ll probably enjoy Cheaper By the Dozen 2 (Fox, €21.99).

Tom Baker (Martin) and partner Kate (Bonnie Hunt) decide on one last holiday together, but rival Jimmy Murtagh (Eugene Levy) gets in on the action, and pretty soon both clans are trying to outdo each other.

Funny in parts, but not as good as the first one, and even that wasn’t particularly great.

Extras yes, but not by the dozen, although they have their hilarious moments.

Comedy

Star rating: 2/5.
