This grating family comedy resembles a sitcom in its flat lighting, patronizing music cues, and frames supplying little visual information apart from the actors' mugging faces. Full Review

An extended "in my day" joke intended to convey the superiority of old people over a lot of supposedly contemporary behavior that doesn't actually exist in real life. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- A more clichéd, cloying, and predictable treacle fest than 'Parental Guidance' you will not find-if you're an adult. That's why it's a pretty good film for small children! Full Review

Rating: C -- After a while it seems to run out of jokes, maybe to make room for all the crying and hug-it-out family redemption in the last half hour. Full Review
Entertainment Weekly
Dec 26, 2012
A series of contrivances born of some unholy union between America's Funniest Home Videos and Leave it to Beaver. Full Review
Aug 21, 2018
Rating: 2/4 -- One of those intergenerational embarrassment comedies in the Meet the Fockers line, where children can enjoy seeing grown-ups looking ridiculous. Full Review

It's definitely a feel good movie, making it the perfect family friendly holiday pick - just remember not to grumble when it doesn't offer any more than that. Full Review

Product Description:

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.
