This movie is predictable, badly acted, and has characters that you struggle to like. The little boy is a huge brat that you wish would just go away. I saw some people leave the theatre in the middle of this movie. I wanted to join them, but the family was there with me. I stuck it out to the end. Ugh.

I saw this movie with my 11 year old son and his two friends and we all loved it!! Humor was appropriate for all ages. Very touching family movie. I would highly recommend it.

We thought this movie was hysterical ! All of us laughed until we cried ! The best movie my 10 year old ever saw ! A great way to end the year !

went to see this movie last night with my 6, 10 & 12 year old boys...we LOVED it! kids laughed and laughed...and my husband and I did lots of head nodding and laughing as we related to so many of the "new parenting" ways that frustrate us as well! a very "true to life" movie with a great script...parts played SO well by all. and i have to admit, i totally teared up at the end...it's got some really sweet and heart-wrenching moments as well. completely family-friendly...there was nothing inappropriate for my 6-year old...although he is a 3rd kid, so we are probably a little relaxed about some language. :/ a must-see for families...the wonderful "cross-generational" message that other reviewers mentioned is right!!!

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.
