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

A series of contrivances born of some unholy union between America's Funniest Home Videos and Leave it to Beaver. 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

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

[It's] nice to see Midler strutting her stuff in her first onscreen comedy role in years.

Rating: 2.5/5 -- There is nothing profound here, but if Artie being called "Farty" by a pre-schooler takes your fancy, then you'll have a laugh. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- A film with little else to commend it from the obvious. 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.
