Comedy. Adapted by Christopher Sergel. From the book by Frank Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey published in 1948.
Suppose you're an attractive high school girl and you're not only a member of a large and unique family but your father is, in fact, one of the great pioneers of industrial efficiency. Then suppose he decides, for no apparent reason, to apply his unorthodox methods to you and to the rest of your big family. The results are terribly embarrassing, funny and—it must be admitted—extremely effective! To Anne, the eldest daughter, the chief effect seems to be that of making them seem ridiculous to everyone else at school—especially to the boys! Dad pushes ahead with better organization for his large and delightful family. He uses a rug as an imaginary bathtub to demonstrate how to take a bath more efficiently and appoints a utilities officer to levy fines on wasters of electricity. This true story is told through the eyes of two of the siblings, Frank and Ernestine. At times Cheaper by the Dozen is uproariously funny, extremely heartwarming and touching at others. Most of all it is great entertainment.
