I am not a movie critic I just know what I enjoy watching. This movie has something for every member of the family. Its funny, sad and a story that we can all relate to.

A truly endtertaining movie. Lets your emotions out. Tears, Laughter and not having to dredge that language would be an issue. It goes to show that movies can be entertaining without having to have sexual content and discusting language. A Good writer can get the message across to the viewer without being vulgar. Thank goodness the writers and producers of Parental Guidance did such a good job.

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.

I love both Billy Crystal & Bette Midler, and was looking forward to an enjoyable & funny movie. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It wasn't nearly as funny as it should have been & became somewhat sappy also.

This was so good! Well worth the cost of the theater ticket. I could watch this over and over. I started laughing from the start. My husband even loved it. Well written, directed, and most of all the acting was superb. As a parent and grandparent, I could totally relate. WELL DONE!!!!!!!
