Parental Guidance

Minor-league baseball announcer Artie Decker (Billy Crystal) and his wife, Diane (Bette Midler), get to see their only child, Alice (Marisa Tomei), very seldom. To their surprise, Alice and her husband (Tom Everett Scott) ask them to watch their children so they can embark on a trip for work. It promises to be a fun time for all, until the three young ones turn out to be quite a handful for this old-fashioned couple. Artie and Diane may need to bend the rules to make everyone happy in the end.

The family-friendliest movie comedy this holiday season is also the sappiest and schmaltziest.

Funny Movie!

This movie is not worth seeing and I say that because some of the scenes were ok and others were funny. For example the part where Billy Crystal sang the toilet song in the bathroom scene I was laughing really hard. And the rest of the scenes were not so funny. And Bette Midler she was great and funny as well. But I think that "This Is 40" is better than this one.
