this is a great funny family movie I saw with my kids; we all anjoyed and laughed through the entire movie and it had nice heartwarming moments. Go see it; there are no robots, explosions, digital Hobbit effects or quests for a ring, just old fashioned movie and acting.

went to see this movie last night with my 6, 10 & 12 year old boys...we LOVED it! kids laughed and laughed...and my husband and I did lots of head nodding and laughing as we related to so many of the "new parenting" ways that frustrate us as well! a very "true to life" movie with a great script...parts played SO well by all. and i have to admit, i totally teared up at the end...it's got some really sweet and heart-wrenching moments as well. completely family-friendly...there was nothing inappropriate for my 6-year old...although he is a 3rd kid, so we are probably a little relaxed about some language. :/ a must-see for families...the wonderful "cross-generational" message that other reviewers mentioned is right!!!

We expected funnier with Crystal in the cast. The humor seemed a little below Crystal's talent but the movie was nice to bring the kids to see!

Parental Guidance was a hysterical "feel good" movie! I would feel safe taking any of my great nieces and nephews to see this. Yet the humor is good enough that my friend and I took the movie in and really enjoyed it ourselves!!

This is a very funny family movie with a wonderful cast. I highly recommend it. The chemistry between Crystal and Midler was great. Tomei was funny also.
Go see it!
