In the 2003 version, Baker has to take care of his 12 children and start a new job, while his wife is away on a book tour.
In the 2005 version, Baker convinces his family to go on their last vacation before many big changes happen and some kids grow up.
When will Cheaper by the Dozen 2022 release on Disney Plus?
The long-awaited 2022 film Cheaper by the Dozen will be available to stream on Disney Plus starting Friday, March 18.
The trailer is available to watch now.
What is Cheaper by the Dozen about?
The original Cheaper by the Dozen was released in 1950, based on the 1948 novel.
The true story was based on the Gilbreth family and the book that Frank Bunker Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey had written about their life as a family of 14.
As a result, the parents used humorous methods to raise and care for their 12 children.
In 2003, a second film with the same name and script was released.
This time the film was about the Baker family. The Baker family’s father, Tom, had to care for the 12 children while his wife worked.
Two years later, in 2005, the family is back and Baker persuades them to take one last family vacation by a lake in Wisconsin, before Nora moves in with her husband and Lorraine interns at New York.
Now, in 2022, a fourth version of the film should be released – also around the bakers.
However, the family and the story are slightly different – Zoey and Paul Baker are getting married and want to merge their households into one.
This means the couple now have 10 children and pets living under one roof, while trying to run a family business.
