A truly endtertaining movie. Lets your emotions out. Tears, Laughter and not having to dredge that language would be an issue. It goes to show that movies can be entertaining without having to have sexual content and discusting language. A Good writer can get the message across to the viewer without being vulgar. Thank goodness the writers and producers of Parental Guidance did such a good job.

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.

The best part was the last 15 minutes

The best part of the movie was the last 10 - 15 minutes of the movie, as everything finally came together. The best part of the night was the previews of upcoming movies. I had high hopes knowing that Billy and Bette were in the movie, but was disappointed by the rambling, very slow story line. I actually had to leave the theater at one point because I needed a commercial a break from the boredom.

Parental Guidance not for kids

saw this with my 10 year old, too much potty humor, the main characters were likable enough butt the torment they went thru was too over the top, I guess that's the only way Hollywood can portray people that they have no common ground with. Sorry butt i give this a 2 out of 5 stars.

Good family fun

It's not edgy. Stuff doesn't blow up. There are no animated characters or talking animals. That said, "PG" is some good-hearted fun for the family set. And the kids are all great!
