All of the cast, including Steve Martin, Bonnie Hunt, Piper Perabo, Tom Welling, and Hillary Duff, return as the Baker clan in this sequel. This time, a family vacation turns into a showdown when Dad meets up with a former high school rival (Eugene Levy) and feels the competitive urge again.
Why Is Cheaper by the Dozen 2 Rated PG?
Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is rated PG for some crude humor and mild language.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Cheaper by the Dozen 2...
Mild sexual innuendo and Carmen Elektra’s low-slung outfits will be the greatest concerns for parents considering this film. Comical pratfalls and an overzealous competitive attitude between two men create moments of conflict and a couple of mild profanities are included. Finally, two young boys accidentally set off a backpack full of fireworks during a formal dinner, sending a wheelchair bound man into the lake. This same man comically falls into the lake again during a later scene.
