Time has flown by! Cheaper by the Dozen premiered in December 2003, and fans have been obsessed with it ever since. The fan-favorite film spawned an equally hilarious sequel and is still high on the list of everyone’s favorite movies, thankfully, it’s available for streaming on Disney+
Starring Hilary Duff, Tom Welling, Alyson Stoner, Piper Perabo, Liliana Mumy, Morgan York, Forrest Landis, Blake Woodruff and more, the flick followed the story of the Baker family and their 12 kids. When their mom, Kate, got called away on business, their dad, Tom, had a tough time taking care of them all. Naturally, chaos ensued, and the kids practically destroyed their house — and their parent’s careers. It was definitely a classic, even the cast thinks so!
Over the years, the stars have reunited a bunch of times to bring on all the nostalgia. In May 2020, multiple members of the cast took to Twitter and showed off the props from the movie that they still own while dressing up like their characters. That same month, the stars recreated their roles for a now-viral TikTok video in which they all posed for their most iconic moments in the movie.
Of course, while the stars were getting in on all the fun, director Shawn Levy — whose name fans may recognize from Stranger Things — also shared some behind-the-scenes secrets from the film’s set via Twitter.
“Hilary Duff was a huge GET for this part, so we rescheduled the whole movie so she could be in it,” she shared in one post at the time. In a separate tweet he added, “Yes I DID cry when we filmed the ‘we love the coach’ scene and I don’t care who knows it.”
Yes, the Cheaper by the Dozen movies are still total classics, but did you know Disney+ is working on a sure-to-be amazing reboot?! But when it comes to the original 12 Baker kids, some of them continued to act and landed some pretty major roles over the years. Others said goodbye to Hollywood once and for all, and stepped out of the spotlight to focus on their education or start a family of their own. But one thing’s for sure — they’ve all grown up and changed quite a bit since the movie premiered all those years ago! See for yourself!
