let’s see what Parents need to know before letting their children watch Cheaper by the dozen 2022.

Language: Cheaper by the dozen 2022 contains soft language, with a few select words that parents need to be aware of. Watchwords include: d*mn, silly, whack, and phrases like “Jesus Christ,” “shut up,” and “fat ass.”

Adult content: The film has a heavy theme around race, given that the family is diverse. The kids are being bullied because of their race, there’s a policeman making a noise reference (assuming the family was loud because of their race), and there’s a scene in which someone thinks that the mother was the nanny because of her race. Although there is no sex or nudity in the film, there are a few scenes where the couple alludes to sex, and the woman even changes into lingerie. There’s a fight that takes place at school, and a cousin who stays with the family because his mother is in rehab.

General thoughts

Cheaper per dozen 2022 takes a popular classic movie and gives it a reboot, the way reboots should be done, that is, with a fresh, modern take on the story. Too many reboots either tell the same old story or change it completely, ruining the parts that grabbed audiences in the first place. This time around, we have the Bakers and their group of twelve, stuck in a house far too small for them and running a family business: a breakfast-only restaurant. Oh, and did I mention, the bakers in this new rendition are a multi-race blended family? Not only have the Bakers had kids from previous marriages and a few sets of twins together, but they also have an adopted South Asian son and two dogs named Bark Obama and Joe Biten.

This new take on Cheaper by the dozen not only provides the opportunity to shine a light on the barriers faced by interracial families, but also the intolerance that children of color experience on a daily basis. Truth be told, when it comes to the interacial marriage, Zoey bears the brunt of it, as she’s mistaken for the nanny because of her skin color and approached by security when the family moves into an affluent neighborhood. It’s something we’ve seen covered often in the movies. However, I was a bit taken aback by the bullying target the film took. With a family of black, white and brown faces; he’s the boy of South Asian descent who falls prey to bullies, who are made fun of for the way he speaks and what he wears. With hate crimes in Asia skyrocketing in recent years, this element of the film is a poignant reminder of the racism that exists towards a multitude of cultures in our country.

Ultimately, Cheaper by the dozen 2022 offers many lessons for audiences to learn from the film. The heart of the story is about family and the importance of unity. There is a popular saying: no one ever said on his deathbed: “I would have liked to spend more time at work.“As the bakers’ business begins to grow and their finances allow them to provide a ‘fancier’ life for their families, they soon realize that this success comes at a price, and that price is having a parent often gone to work No amount of money or success can replace the importance of being present.

Cheaper per dozen 2022 is by no means a perfect film. While raising awareness of social issues is appreciated and important, there were times when issues were raised that felt out of place and forced. Adding that to the fact that the writers touched on the issue of race while calling two of the film’s blonde-haired white businesswomen “Barbie’s” seemed a bit contrary to the message of acceptance they were promoting.

Zach Braff and Gabrielle Union were great in the film, and they had a great on-screen relationship. It’s no surprise that Braff is the comedy of the film, and he brought on laughs with his nerdy attitude and silly TikTok dances. The couple was a storyline where opposites attract, as Union exudes class and sophistication. The marriage between the two was another portrayal that looks and money are not what make a happy marriage.

Cheaper by the dozen 2022 won’t win any prizes and may even be overlooked as another pointless reboot. In all honesty, this author had the same thought in the movie, but was pleasantly surprised at how fun and enjoyable to watch it was. The filmmakers could have done themselves a favor and shortened the film a bit, since a two-hour runtime isn’t necessary for these home movies. I wouldn’t be surprised if this film spawned its own sequel in the near future, and I would expect it to continue to tackle issues of race and the importance of family unity.
