  • 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. show more

  • Billy Crystal and Bette Midler hustle to peddle the threadbare material that makes Andy Fickman's comedy a perfectly tolerable, if uninspired, moviegoing experience. show more

  • The pathos: considerable. The sight gags, involving Crystal puking chili dog on a kid's face, or the grandson with an imaginary friend peeing and causing an X Games skateboarder to wipe out: artless. The results: tolerably amusing. show more

    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!!
