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.

Belly laughed 'til I cried. Bette and Billy are a great comedy team and must do more projects together. Marisa was perfectly cast and the kids, especially the little one, were great.
Well written and and well executed. Great fun!

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.

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.

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!!!
