went to see this movie last night with my 6, 10 & 12 year old boys...we LOVED it! kids laughed and laughed...and my husband and I did lots of head nodding and laughing as we related to so many of the "new parenting" ways that frustrate us as well! a very "true to life" movie with a great script...parts played SO well by all. and i have to admit, i totally teared up at the end...it's got some really sweet and heart-wrenching moments as well. completely family-friendly...there was nothing inappropriate for my 6-year old...although he is a 3rd kid, so we are probably a little relaxed about some language. :/ a must-see for families...the wonderful "cross-generational" message that other reviewers mentioned is right!!!

My husband and I went to see this movie on New Years Eve. I really liked it. There were laughs and there were tears, and of course, the happy ending.While the movie is rated PG, I don't think that my 7 yr old grandson would have sat still through it. Not enough real "kid stuff" in it. However, all the adults in the theatre totally related! Bette Midler and Billy Crystal are a great combo!
I would watch it again!

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.

We expected funnier with Crystal in the cast. The humor seemed a little below Crystal's talent but the movie was nice to bring the kids to see!

I went to see this movie and I really enjoyed the fact there wasn't any foul language in it. It has a good storyline and the actors were really good. If you want a good laugh, go see it.
