The new version of Cheaper by the Dozen is like a new edition that I didn’t know I needed. It’s honestly like a 21st century update of our current life. Which it touches on co-parenting, socialism, interracial dating, colorism, racism and more. This version is very relatable to anybody’s current life.

When talking to Durrett about dealing with colorism within your own culture. He opened up about people thinking he was “soft” because he is light skin and pretty much getting use to it while growing up.

Durrett plays the father of Union’s character which they have to learn how to co-parent during the film. Which his character also shows us that just because you have more doesn’t mean you’re a better parent.
