We enjoyed it. Time well spent. I was never a Billy Cystal fan. However, this movie is an exception. Gotta love Bette. We laughed and cried. A feel good for the Holiday season.

My husband and I took my two granddaughters 9 and 6. The 9 year old loved it and so did my husband and I. The 6 year old fell asleep for part of the movie so I wouldn't recommend it for children under 9. It was a really funny movie!!!

Good family movie for all ages. Billy and Bette both do a good job with their roles and while the story is semi-predicatable, it is still funny.

I saw this movie on Christmas day with my 7 year old boy. I like Billy Crystal and Marissa Tomei and to my surprise there were not that many family friendly movies out at this time. The movie was thoroughly enjoyable. There was a decent story line and in an age where gratuitous sex and things getting blown up are considered family friendly, this was a throwback family movie. There were story lines that Grandparents, Parents and kids could all relate to on different level. There was genuine laughter and genuine emotion. Some of it was predictable, but it didn't matter. The cast was able to pull it off regardless of the times you knew what was coming. I highly recommend this film to all ages. I don't think you will be disappointed.

My husband and I went to see this movie on New Years Eve. I really liked it. There were laughs and there were tears, and of course, the happy ending.While the movie is rated PG, I don't think that my 7 yr old grandson would have sat still through it. Not enough real "kid stuff" in it. However, all the adults in the theatre totally related! Bette Midler and Billy Crystal are a great combo!
I would watch it again!
