“This special Baker’s Dozen Edition of Cheaper by the Dozen has so many fun-filled extras as the Bakers have kids and then some! We’ve included 13 all-new, never-before-seen special features, including an exclusive sneak peak at Cheaper by the Dozen 2!
Comedy superstar Steve Martin pairs up with Bonnie Hunt in this hilarious family comedy about two loving parents trying to manage careers and a household amid the chaos of raising twelve rambunctious kids.”
Cheaper by the Dozen is rated PG for language and some thematic elements.
There are 6 new deleted scenes, none of which are that memorable. One shows the kids plotting their trick against Ashton Kutcher (and wasting a lot of meat in the process). Another deleted scene shows a really long ad-lib sequence between Kutcher and Dax Shepard (the astronaut from Zathura). Also new are four featurettes highlighting the frog scene, the moon bounce exploding scene, the dog from the film, and director Shawn Levy. Each of these features is quite extensive. You’ll also find an Easter Egg, storyboard to screen comparisons, and a sneak peek of a scene from Cheaper by the Dozen 2. It is introduced by one of the kids and Carmen Electra.
Do the extra bonus features make it worth buying a second copy of Cheaper by the Dozen? I don’t think so, but if you’re a crazy fan of the film, you’ll probably want to check it out.
