Excellent Movie!

Parental Guidance was a hysterical "feel good" movie! I would feel safe taking any of my great nieces and nephews to see this. Yet the humor is good enough that my friend and I took the movie in and really enjoyed it ourselves!!

Cute story line but the acting was atrocious

I've seen Billy Crystal, Bette Middler and Marissa Tomei in other movies before and had come away with the notion that they were pretty good actors. Maybe it was the story line or maybe they were catering more to an audience of chidren but it seemed like they were forcing every line. Very overdone or maybe it was just poor acting. Of course I didn't pick this movie thinking I would see Oscar performances but these were really disappointing. Like they all phoned it in. Definitely a wait til it comes out in DVD , Blue Ray or on Netflix. I did find some parts very funny and one part quite touching but again because the acting was overdone it was on the whole disappointing.

Belly laughed 'til I cried. Bette and Billy are a great comedy team and must do more projects together. Marisa was perfectly cast and the kids, especially the little one, were great. Well written and and well executed. Great fun!

One of Billy Crystal's best roles - he was made for the part. Loved the premise of old-school vs new-school as it played out in marriage, parenting, and careers (subtle statement about out times) and how each has it's strengths and weaknesses. Well done and tons of fun.
