Thought the movie was hysterical! Most grandparents probably could relate to it. There were people literally cracking up with laughter and there were a few tears too. Loved, loved the movie. Loved Bette Midler. I know from an interview that it was Billy Crystal's idea and he sure had a great one. Between the two it was hysterical. Any age could watch this.

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.

One of Billy Crystal's best roles - he was made for the part. Loved the premise of old-school vs new-school as it played out in marriage, parenting, and careers (subtle statement about out times) and how each has it's strengths and weaknesses. Well done and tons of fun.

Quite possibly the worst movie I've ever seen.

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.
