Address Comments To:
Although CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN is not the classic novel, it is a wonderful movie which makes a positive, redemptive, and moral points including affirming the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the midst of messy situations. Forgiveness, love, family, decency, and morality triumph in a big way. The director keeps all the balls in the air, which makes the movie the most enjoyable feature film that’s been released so far this Christmas season.
