Cheaper By The Dozen Trailer: Brady Bunch Vibes With Way More Kids

We have a new trailer for the latest remake of "Cheaper By the Dozen." Though I've never seen the Steve Martin version, this one looks pretty darn cute. In a very "Brady Bunch" way, this is the story of a blended family that involves a marriage and a group of 10 adorable rugrats, and I'm tired just looking at it. Tired in the sweetest way though. I can see my entire family on the floor watching this and laughing, and really what else could you want? What can I say? I'm a sucker for feel-good movies these days. 

The Disney+ "Cheaper by the Dozen" is the second remake of the 1950 film of the same name, itself based on the the autobiographical book by Frank Bunker Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. But the 2003 film starring Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt is probably the best known version. This time around, our couple is Zach Braff and Gabrielle Union. They've blended in all the kids, and they seem to approach discipline with humor. I'm not sure how realistic that is with 10 children, but then again, I have three cats. I'm not qualified to weigh in. The thing that really sticks out in this trailer though, is a little scene where Union's Zoe is in a salon saying that she really likes spending time with her children. It's almost treated like a joke, or a quaint thing by the other characters. Again, I have cats, but liking your children is supposed to be a good thing, right? It's nice to see that addressed.
