My husband didn't want to go to this movie, but he is really glad he did! Our whole family laughed so much...we absolutely loved this movie. Billy Crystal and Bette Midler were hysterical as grandparents. We highly recommend it as a fun family movie.

Funny and heartwarming, but takes awhile to get going

The first half hour is slow. The middle is pretty good, and it really comes together well at the end. Definately worth seeing. Once Billy Crystal and the kids catch their rhythym, it really gets good. I genuinely liked the kids and the grandparents (Crystal/Middler). Marissa was disappointing. This movie is certainly worth a few hours, on a Sunday afternoon, at the movies.

My wife and I saw this movie on Christmas day. We like both Billy Crystal and Bette Midler, and expected it to be funny and take a lighthearted look at parenting and generational child rearing attitudes. Wow! It was indeed hilarious, as we and the rest of the audience laughed throughout the movie. But......parts of it were very, very touching and relevent to the issues Grandparents face with their kids and Grandkids. The scenes that brought tears are what made the movie a "gotta see" for any one with kids or Grandkids. Very well written, just the right mix of humor and seriousness. This is a movie I will buy, and I'm not a real big movie buyer.

Billy, Bette and Marissa are fine, but the movie as a whole, is ho-hum. I expected some side-splitting humor with this cast, but there were just a few chuckles, and a few moments of near tears emotional content. So nice, but not great, especially for over $15 per ticket in NYC. Suitable for audiences that don't want to be challenged. Don't worry if you fall asleep (I didn't) duiring it - you wont miss anything.

This is one of the funniest movies we have seen in a long time. It's a great family movie. We saw it two days ago and we're still laughing over some of the lines. A must see for any parent or grandparent. Billy Crystal is hilarious !
