A solid film here, populated with A-list talent that doesn't disappoint. You simply can't go wrong with this one, especially if you like to laugh. See it and take the kids along. You'll neither need to cover their eyes or their ears. You'll enjoy it too. This film's a refreshing change from all the horror and ghoulishness that's been infecting theater screens these past months. A little love and kindness goes a long way and this is one of those movies that reminds us of what's really important in our lives.....children and family.

It's a warm, inspirational story told by great actors. It is perfect for all ages from children to grandparents; there were no trashy words nor bizarre scenes. I hope this movie has a long life!

With such a horrible and often riduculous plot line, screenplay, and dialog, I actually felt embarrased and sorry for Billy Crystal, who prior to this had my respect for having given us some terrific and memorable comedic performances. Most tolerable part of the movie was Bette Midler's brief singing duet with Crystal.

I thought I would like this movie from watching the promos, and I was so right. Great cast, so funny and touching, with a story that everyone can relate too. Lots of laughs. Great ending. The lady behind me was laughing so hard, she was practically choking! Don't listen to the critics; go see it!

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!
