Old school grandfather Artie (Billy Crystal), who is accustomed to calling the shots, meets his match when he and his eager-to-please wife Diane (Bette Midler) agree to babysit their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents (Marisa Tomei, Tom Everett Scott) go away for work. But when 21st century problems collide with Artie and Diane's old school methods of tough rules, lots of love and old-fashioned games, it's learning to bend -- and not holding your ground -- that binds a family together.

The basic premise of Mom and Dad needing a break from the kids, and having to call the out of favor grand parents, kind of reminded me of Uncle Buck as Billy and Bette are a barely known commodity to the kids and definitely not the first choice of their parents to watch them.
The movie focuses on struggles and resolutions. For parents, grandparents and kids. Not always perfect, but real, and well payed by Billy and Bette with a great supporting cast.
Another common theme throughout the movie (and one of the best springboards for Billy Crystal's humor...) was the generation gap. Struggles with a high-tech world that is normal for the kids, but like a foreign land to grandparents.
This movie isn't about a strong story line, it's about laughing your way through the absurdity that is sometimes our lives. The ups and downs of parenting, the wisdom of grandparents, children struggling to grow and the love that binds families amid it all.
If you're looking for a family film with strong comedic laughs, sweet moments with some tears, and a triumphant ending. You'll enjoy Parental Guidance.
As a grandparent, I was prepared for an assault that never developed. I enjoyed the movie. The entire cast worked well together. But I must warn you, there are no car chases, no explosions and no guns. When mentioning this film to my young friends, they shrugged their shoulders and asked why would I ever want to spend money to see this movie? This is a family friendly movie with enough substance to appeal to old and young.
