    Synopsis


    Parental Guidance
    Billy Crystal and Bette Midler star as Artie and Diane -- an old-school grandfather and his people-pleasing wife, who babysit for their three decidedly 21st century grandchildren while the kids' type-A parents (played by Marisa Tomei and Tom Everett Scott) are away for work. Artie's traditional ideas go toe-to-toe with the kids' (and their parents') cutting-edge, multitasking ways, but this modern family comes to learn that love, understanding, and an openness to trying new and old things, will always keep a family together. Andy Fickman directs from a script by Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      This is an overly mediocre film, despite the talented adult cast and direction by the usually reliable Andy Fickman, who done two pretty good family films Race to Witch Mountain and The Game Plan, but the screenplay is too average and annoying children too annoying and cloying. Despite it all, there is some OK laughs and Crystal and Midler have good chemistry, but chemistry only gets you so far. The picture quality itself isn't too great either, with alot of drab colors and pizazz, with an X-Games-esque scene shot with GoPros that featured noticeable pixelation that while a short scene, is noticeable enough to notice. The audio is the standard comedy soundtrack (lack of major surround use, LFE almost nonexistent) and the extras consisting of a slightly amusing commentary by Fickman and Crystal, deleted scenes that were wisely cut, outtakes, and a featurette that only offers a slight look at making this film. Recommend only if you love the stars, need something for the kiddies or just need cheap filler on your bluray shelf.

      Pretty Funny

      This is a great movie to let the stress of the day escape. It is funny, yet light drama here and there. It pokes fun at the parent & grown child relationships. Yet what I like most about this, is stays close to "reality" and doesn't get crazy stupid in poking fun. It actually has a good message to grown children, as well as parents in accepting the "differences" in raising children. Ahh, I won't give the ending away, but live and let live or give and take would be a good summation.

      This DVD has very nice sounds and picture quality. The movie itself is a fun and entertaining flick for the family to watch. If a person (or persons) are expecting some type of masterpiece, they might be disappointed- just take this film for what is worth and enjoy the time watching it with loved one's.

      A great movie for kids and adults! The rating was about rude humor, though I thought it was not that bad. Most of this humor would go right over most children's "heads". Billy Crystal was great as usual. Casting was excellent and believable. Would of liked more extras; like blooper's and and a behind the scenes short.

      Like explosions? Graphic violence? Full frontal? Then you need to watch this to take a break from that stuff! It's rare to find movies that are clean but not complete cheese. Funny shouldn't mean crass, and Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, and Marisa Tomei reminds us of that in this wonderful movie.

      This movie is a great chuckler throughout and we just love it. Sometimes I just have it on to keep me company. My kids love it too. Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, and the lovely Marisa Tomei will make you laugh and smile. Cute story, nothing overly emotional, but a good reminder that families need each other.

      For me Billy Crystal movies are hit and miss. This movie was a big hit for me. Reminded me a lot of the comedy from the city slicker movies, I was rolling laughing. Does have a child with a weird stutter that will slightly irritate because it is annoyingly fake but does not hinder the movie.

      I originally saw this on demand with the family and the kids loved it so much that we bought a Blu-Ray version for my daughter (9). Although we don't watch it everyday...we do enjoy watching it every now and again, and we get a few laughs from it too. Definitely one to have in your collection.
