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!

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!

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!!

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'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.
