FOX KEEPS IT COOKING WITH A HOT THANKSGIVING MOVIE MARATHON!

Three-Night Lineup Features Consecutive World Broadcast Premieres And Star Power of Jim Carrey, Jennifer Aniston, Tobey Maguire and Steve Martin

FOX is fixing up a delicious star-studded holiday weekend with the World Broadcast Premieres of CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN on Nov. 22, SPIDER-MAN 2 on Nov. 23 and BRUCE ALMIGHTY on Nov. 24. Join Jim Carrey, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Martin, Kirsten Dunst, Tobey Maguire and Hilary Duff for a Thanksgiving to remember!

For the first course, FOX starts off with the World Broadcast Premiere of CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN Wednesday, Nov. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). When Tom Baker (Steve Martin) gets his dream job of coaching his alma mater�s football team, he uproots his family of 12 from small-town Illinois to the big city. Meanwhile, his wife, Kate (Bonnie Hunt), also achieves her dream of having her book published. While Kate is away promoting the book, Tom has a hard time balancing his family life while coaching his football team, and the happy family starts falling apart.

SPIDER-MAN 2 has its World Broadcast Premiere on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 23 (8:00-10:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Tobey Maguire returns as the mild-mannered Peter Parker, now struggling to balance his dual life as college student and superhuman crime-fighter. Peter�s life becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the brilliant Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled �Doc Ock.� When Doc Ock kidnaps Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst), Spider-Man must swing back into action as the adventure reaches unprecedented heights of excitement.

The next night (Friday, Nov. 24, 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), BRUCE ALMIGHTY, another World Broadcast Premiere, will be served on FOX. Jim Carrey stars as Bruce, a local TV news reporter who is dissatisfied with nearly everything in his life � and lets everyone, including his girlfriend, Grace (Jennifer Aniston), know it. God (Morgan Freeman), sick of hearing all the complaining, challenges Bruce to take on His big job and see if he can do it better.
