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.

this is a great funny family movie I saw with my kids; we all anjoyed and laughed through the entire movie and it had nice heartwarming moments. Go see it; there are no robots, explosions, digital Hobbit effects or quests for a ring, just old fashioned movie and acting.

Total Crap!

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.
