  The effortless ability to imbue lackluster dialogue with wit and charm is a gift to be cherished. Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt share that skill, and they're the main reason that the remake of the good-natured 1950 family comedy "Cheaper by the Dozen" is at all tolerable. To be fair, this is not truly a re-do of the older film, which was adapted from a memoir of the huge Gilbreth brood. It takes the title and updates the basic concept of a loving family of 14 — two really fertile parents (Martin, Hunt) and a swarm of 12 boisterous, too-cute kids — by throwing out biographical bits and throwing in uninspired slapstick, squirts of schmaltz and an unbilled appearance by talent-challenged pretty-boy Ashton Kutcher. Tom Baker is a small-town high-school football coach; wife Kate's writing a manuscript about the joys of raising an unwieldy gaggle of brats. (Get it? Bakers' dozen! A screenplay Oscar awaits!) Dad gets a coaching position at a major college, just as Mom gets a book contract and must go on a PR tour, leading to chaos at the Bakers' new home. Youngsters may laugh. Oldsters will see the dissimilar-looking Piper Perabo ("Coyote Ugly"), Tom Welling ("Smallville") and Hilary Duff ("Lizzie McGuire") as Baker offspring, note little resemblance to Martin and Hunt, and think, "These lunatics adopted 12 children."
