How can you go wrong with exceptional actors like Billy Crystal and Bette Midler? This was a terrific movie with good values and funny lines. We went with three generations and everyone enjoyed it...the youngest being 8. It even made my teenager laugh and that's virtually impossible when he's "forced" to do "lame" family activities. LOL. A GREAT movie! I would see it again.

As a grandparent I really liked this show. It is a lot like my life. My chance to instill my lifelong beliefs into my GK's, which I think are important. Got to get those little slackers going!

It was a refreshing experience to sit in a theatre without hearing curse words or seeing racy scenes in what was called a family movie. This trully is a family movie. It is funny, entertaining, enjoyable movie. We sooo enjoyed it!

Billy, Bette and Marissa are fine, but the movie as a whole, is ho-hum. I expected some side-splitting humor with this cast, but there were just a few chuckles, and a few moments of near tears emotional content. So nice, but not great, especially for over $15 per ticket in NYC.
Suitable for audiences that don't want to be challenged. Don't worry if you fall asleep (I didn't) duiring it - you wont miss anything.

As a comedy I will give this an "average" rating, but as a mild heartwarming story of a mother and a son reconnecting with one another on an authentic level, I would give it a "go" rating.
