Very enjoyable, and appropriate for the entire family

Very entertaining movie appropriate for the entire family. Captures the generational divide in obvious as well as more subtle ways. Don't let the first third of the movie discourage you, it gets better, especially after the parents finally leave town and the focus turns to the relationships between Grandparents and their Grandchildren. The young actors give excellent performances. Middler and Crystal are very good together and fun to watch. Their imrprov acapella duet in the ktitchen is adorable. The messages in the movie are touching and uplifting and at times hilarious.

The best part was the last 15 minutes

The best part of the movie was the last 10 - 15 minutes of the movie, as everything finally came together. The best part of the night was the previews of upcoming movies. I had high hopes knowing that Billy and Bette were in the movie, but was disappointed by the rambling, very slow story line. I actually had to leave the theater at one point because I needed a commercial a break from the boredom.

Seeing that there were no family movies out there for President's Day weekend, my sons chose to see Parental Guidance and I'm glad they did. It was not a plot-heavy movie but contained enough to move the movie and enjoy the cute moments. We all enjoyed it and I think most would if they were not looking for an Oscar winner!

This movie made me laugh until my throat hurt it is one hillarious movie. It's is rare that Hollywood could make a movie that's good for the entire family but this is the one no profanity or sexual content. It should be rated G.
