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!

I went to see this movie with my mom and sister. We all thought it was great! We laughed a ton throughout the entire movie and felt a strong emotional connection to it. My mom even got a little teary and some points! I thought it had a great plot and that it's a great movie to see with the entire family.

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.

A solid film here, populated with A-list talent that doesn't disappoint. You simply can't go wrong with this one, especially if you like to laugh. See it and take the kids along. You'll neither need to cover their eyes or their ears. You'll enjoy it too. This film's a refreshing change from all the horror and ghoulishness that's been infecting theater screens these past months. A little love and kindness goes a long way and this is one of those movies that reminds us of what's really important in our lives.....children and family.

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!!!
