What is the significance of the number 12? The number of children Tom (Martin) and Kate (Hunt) Baker have. That is an atrociously huge number even for a modern American family, but apart from being a pain like what most of us envision it to be, Tom and Kate love it and are doing just fine. The family lives in the small town of Midland where Tom is a football coach and Kate is a budding author. Tom gets the big break in his life when he gets an offer to coach his dream football team. The only compromise is that the family would have to move to Chicago. The children are not happy moving but are left with no choice. Their eldest daughter, (Perabo) is staying in Chicago with her boyfriend Hank (Kutcher) who is a budding actor. Tom's life starts getting busy and he cant spend time with the family the way he used to. Kate got an offer to get her book published and went on a national book tour. With no mom and dad too busy working, the house becomes one huge mess. The bottom line that the movie gets at is that rather than career and money, happiness and family should be ones goal and priority in life. The movie does well with some good performances and a decent garnishing of humour everywhere. The movie is not an outright comedy, but its a smooth, simple and enjoyable watch with the family. The typical family entertainer and does exactly what it is supposed to do.

Thumbs up: Great family entertainer
Thumbs down: Average plot, could have more humour

Rating: 7.3/10
