Being the father of 3 daughters and watching their families grow I could really enjoy this one

I was suprised how well this movie turned out. This is the type of movie someone with a family would enjoy. Its probably going to be a one time watch but hey it wouldnt hurt to watch just once.

A simply fabulous movie!! We laughed until we cried:) As baby boomer grandma's, we could relate so well. It should have made the Academy Awards. We NEED more comedy and less violence!!

This was such a wonderful movie! Billy Crystal and Bette Midler duo was simply stupendous! This movie is a great on to see again, and should be in your DVD collection, once it drops!

Lazy, smugly self-satisfied movie. Full Review

Parental Guidance is an engaging comedy that bridges multiple generation gaps, making it that rare movie that grandparents, their kids, and their kids can enjoy. Full Review

Crystal and Midler are such confident pros that their crack timing elevates even substandard material. Full Review

Parental Guidance is one of those intergenerational embarrassment comedies in the "Meet the Fockers" line, where children can enjoy seeing grown-ups looking ridiculous. Full Review

It could be worse, and would be without Bette Midler or Marisa Tomei. Full Review
