My husband took our family to see this movie on Christmas Day. Originally we decided to go and see this movie for some laughs and were not really counting on it to be much more than that. We were happily surprised that this movie had a very good story line and had strong family values hidden in the movie. Good to see how much Grandparents love their Grandkids....I would watch this again, no violence, no sex scenes, appropriate for all ages.

THE THEATER WAS PACKED TO THE RAFTERS. IT WAS A DELIGHT TO WATCH AFTER BEING SUBJECTED TO WHAT SEEMED LIKE HOURS OF SI-FI PREVIEWS ROARING AND GROWLING AWAY.
THIS MOVIE IS ABOUT GENERATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS, AND THE HOUSE WAS FILLED WITH LAUGHTER AND THE NODDING OF HEADS AS WE ALL ENJOYED SEEING BITS OF OUR OWN LIVES WHIP ACROSS THE SCREEN.
THE SCRIPT, THE ACTORS AND TREATMENT ALL AER EXPERT AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE.

Good family humor. Great chemistry between Bette Midler and Billy Crystal. The kids in the movie were great. it was nice clean humor and worth seeing.

I was worried that the only funny parts in this movie were going to be the ones they show in the previews, but those were just the beginning! The entire movie was hysterical! A couple of times my eyes were tearing up because I was laughing so hard! My 8 and 11 year olds were both laughing through the whole movie, too, which says a lot because they have very different tastes in movies. I highly recommended this movie to my parents and in laws (who are always making fun of "new school" parenting) and I am highly recommending it here, too!

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. As with many movies it has a fairly predictable ending but the laughs along the way are wonderful. Bette Midler and Billy Crystal are wonderful together. Actually, the whole cast is just great.
What's even better - it's a whole family kind of movie!
