Cheaper by the Dozen

"Growing pains? They've got twelve of them!"

The Baker brood moves to Chicago after patriarch Tom gets a job coaching football at Northwestern University, forcing his writer wife, Mary, and the couple's 12 children to make a major adjustment. The transition works well until work demands pull the parents away from home, leaving the kids bored -- and increasingly mischievous.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • After the meat soaking scene, Steve Martin's character (Tom Baker) says, "Where did they come up with soaking his underwear in meat?" Actually, the idea of the kids soaking Hank's underwear in meat was Steve Martin's idea.
  • Mason Williams (II)' musical composition, "Classical Gas", features prominently in this film. Williams was lead writer on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1967), where he hired a fresh-out-of-college Steve Martin -- Martin's first big Hollywood break.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Dylan is being wheeled out of the hospital, Tina accidentally runs into the wall as the gurney passes through a doorway.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Sarah grabs a handful of meat from the kitchen she is wearing a purple shirt, a moment later when Jake also grabs some meat he is wearing a red shirt. Both Sarah and Jake are wearing different shirts in the basement when the kids are soaking the underwear.
