My husband and I went to see this movie on New Years Eve. I really liked it. There were laughs and there were tears, and of course, the happy ending.While the movie is rated PG, I don't think that my 7 yr old grandson would have sat still through it. Not enough real "kid stuff" in it. However, all the adults in the theatre totally related! Bette Midler and Billy Crystal are a great combo!
I would watch it again!

With such a horrible and often riduculous plot line, screenplay, and dialog, I actually felt embarrased and sorry for Billy Crystal, who prior to this had my respect for having given us some terrific and memorable comedic performances. Most tolerable part of the movie was Bette Midler's brief singing duet with Crystal.

It's a warm, inspirational story told by great actors. It is perfect for all ages from children to grandparents; there were no trashy words nor bizarre scenes. I hope this movie has a long life!

This is a very funny family movie with a wonderful cast. I highly recommend it. The chemistry between Crystal and Midler was great. Tomei was funny also.
Go see it!

I thought I would like this movie from watching the promos, and I was so right. Great cast, so funny and touching, with a story that everyone can relate too. Lots of laughs. Great ending. The lady behind me was laughing so hard, she was practically choking! Don't listen to the critics; go see it!
