Where does Cheaper by the Dozen land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to another weekend of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a film. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a film hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a film hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the film hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Our next film to hit the Banana Meter is Cheaper by the Dozen

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the film:

Ashley Saunders

Banana Meter Rating: 80%

Cheaper by the Dozen (2022) is a laugh-out-loud, heartfelt look at what it means to be a family. It lovingly showcases diversity, inclusivity, adoption, and blended families. Plus it is a wonderful example of what it means to be loving, supportive, and present for those in your life.

Banana Meter Rating: 75%

This new delve into blended families not only highlights the craziness and difficulties that present themselves, but it showcases a family whose diversity represents the world that we live in. It’s silly and lively tone help to balance the real world issues that the story wants bring attention to. There’s a lot to like as well as a lot to learn from.

Edward Douglas

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

Gets corny at times, but it’s also frequently cute and even quite charming, so it eventually did grow on me.

Banana Meter Rating: 30%

Cheaper By The Dozen is a bad Disney channel movie trying to be a Disney+ Original. Outside of a few charming moments there’s absolutely nothing new here.

Matthieu Côté

Banana Meter Rating: 25%

If you’re looking for some decent entertainment, try to avoid it. If you’re forced to watch it with the kids, good luck… it’s bad. Eye-rolling, lazy, unfunny, I felt bad for the actors involved because Zach Braff & some of the kids are actually trying. It’s a sad excuse for shameful product placements and creating uninspired content from an existing IP.

Matthew Fox

Banana Meter Rating: 60%

This was a fun and entertaining film. It’s not incredible or incredibly original but its endearing heart gets you in the end.

Renato Vieira

Banana Meter Rating: 50%

A charming enough, funny enough, good enough family watch, but not much else, and that’s probably what it was always meant to be.

Tina Kakadelis

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

There’s a lot to love about this updated version of Cheaper By the Dozen, but where it falters is the sheer breadth of areas the film valiantly tries to cover.

Banana Meter Rating: 60%

Honestly, this was way better than it had any right to be. Braff and Union are great together.

Maxance Vincent

Banana Meter Rating: 30%

Zach Braff and Gabrielle Union have terrific chemistry together, but the entirety of the film just doesn’t work. It tries to juggle many touchy subjects at once, without a cohesive tissue to connect them all together.

Trevor Matteson

Banana Meter Rating: 10%

Cheaper By The Dozen is yet another lazy family film that accomplishes absolutely nothing except being an annoyance.

Michael Thomas

Banana Meter Rating: 65%

A harmless remake that you will forget about an hour after watching it.
