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!

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.

Great movie for people of all ages! No violence, sex, drugs, or foul language...quite refreshing for this day and age! It also has a great message about family, "unplugging" and communicating with others! I grew up seeing Bette and Billy in movies...they are as great today as they were then!

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.
