This is a great movie. A must see for the family, they just dont make movies like this much any more and Hats off to Billy Crystal and Bette Midler for such a great movie. It would pay some of the other writers to be more like this. Its shows you can have a great time a make a wonderful movie with out the potty mouth that nearly all movies have now a days. Thank You Billy Crystal for doing such a funny movie that the whole family can enjoy together. My husband and I laughed the whole time and so did everyone in the
theater. I love the Japanese chef, I have not seen him since he played Long Duck Dong in 16 candles. He was funny then and funny now. Great Movie!!!

Thought the movie was hysterical! Most grandparents probably could relate to it. There were people literally cracking up with laughter and there were a few tears too. Loved, loved the movie. Loved Bette Midler. I know from an interview that it was Billy Crystal's idea and he sure had a great one. Between the two it was hysterical. Any age could watch this.

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!!

I took my 12 and 4 y/o boys to watch this movie. I did laugh more than they did, but my 12 y/o said he enjoyed it too. I guess I got more of the humor than he did. It was a clean and family oriented movie with a nice life lesson to take with you. I loved Crystal/Midler and kids were adorable.

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.
