January 17 2006

Baker is back! A popular family again came to the big screen in the new comedy "Cheaper by the Dozen 2." At this time, they will match themselves against the numerous other family clans. Viewers will see again all my favorite actors involved in the first movie (Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt, Hilary Duff, Tom Welling and Piper Perabo), they "make company" little family, headed by Eugene Levy.

Tom Baker (Steve Martin) and his wife Kate (Bonnie Hunt), hoping to arrange their twelve offspring of an unforgettable summer vacation in a rustic house on Lake Winnetka, Wisconsin. But the rest very soon becomes a torment when they come into competition with an ambitious family, headed by longtime rival Tom Mertafom Jimmy (Eugene Levy).

Starring: - Steve Martin, Eugene Levy, Bonnie Hunt, Tom Welling, Piper Perabo and Hilary Duff. Director - Adam Shenkmen. Composer - John Debney. Producer - Shawn Levy and Ben Myron. The film is based on the novel "Cheaper by the Dozen» (Cheaper by the Dozen) Bunker Frank Gilbert Jr. and Ernestine Gilbert Carrie. Screenwriter - Sam Harper.

In 2003 was produced comedy "Cheaper by the Dozen." Funny mishmash liking the audience. The film became the highest grossing in the career of famed comedian Steve Martin. "Cheaper by the Dozen" is a declaration of love for large families.

In the continuation of the history of the vast family, the filmmakers have decided to withdraw virtually all the actors who played Baker in the first film. Re-assemble such a large ensemble is not easy, but all fourteen actors so love their heroes, their reunion has passed relatively smoothly.

Directed Shenkmen commends the work of screenwriter Sam Harper, who decided almost impossible task of striking a balance between all of the 25 th movie roles. "Sam wrote for the three stars (Steve Martin, Eugene Levy and Bonnie Hunt), who are behind the scriptwriting experience and have their own opinion on all issues - says Shenkmen. - All three actors say that you have found time in his busy schedule, and starred in "Cheaper by the Dozen 2", read his script, and the merit of Sam. "

This confirms Steve Martin: "The script was good to begin with. "Cheaper by the Dozen 2" preserves the spirit of the first film, developing in new directions. "

On Scene aria Harper Tom and Kate Baker are experiencing "empty nest syndrome": Nora (Piper Perabo) married, expecting a baby and lives in Houston, Lorraine (Hilary Duff) left school and moved to New York to work in the fashion industry, and Charlie (Tom Welling) became a mechanic.

That collects all your litter in your favorite vacation spot Baker - on Lake Winnetka, to mark the end of summer and the glory of having fun, "just like old times."

But the holiday is under threat because of the surge in ancient feud between Tom and Jimmy Mertafom. Some of this hostility is fed by different approaches to raising children in two families. Tom and Kate Baker did not hinder the development of personality of their children and did not seek to make them perfect personalities. Mertaf, by contrast, has always been a proponent of strict control. He keeps their kids on a short leash and groom them to, according to Harper, showed the best side of his gene pool. "

In "Cheaper by the Dozen 2" all these topics and issues given the highest priority, despite the fact that the funniest places and tricks here more than in the first film. Steve Martin's talent has helped bring together a sense of humor and moments "for the soul."
