PARENTAL GUIDANCE blu-ray review

* I received the below product solely for review purposes.  As always, all opinions are completely my own and completely honest.

Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei prove that laughter is relative in this hilarious comedy that's fun for the whole family! Old-school grandparents Artie (Crystal) and Diane (Midler) get more than they bargained for when they get stuck babysitting their type-A daughter's (Tomei) overprotected kids. But things go from hectic to hysterical when Artie realizes the kids are running the house with their newfangled technology. By playing by his own rules, which include sugary snacks, old fashioned games and tough love, Artie manages to outsmart the kids and achieve the impossible- bring the family closer together!


I have been excited to see this movie since I first saw the trailer.  I personally love Bette Midler and of course Billy Crystal.  My fiancee and I sat down one evening after the kiddos went to bed and laughed our butts off at this movie.  I mean I had tears from crying so hard and I also cried at an emotional part in the movie ( no spoilers here ).  The movie compares old school parenting with new age parenting thus creating a surplus of laughter.

I also let my sister borrow the movie and her whole family was laughing out loud.  We both loved how the movie was family friendly and would make a great choice for FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT!  We also loved how each kid had their own "problem" and how old school parenting helped them solve it!  We both agreed Billy Crystal and Bette Midler did a marvelous job as the grandparents!  In fact, I would love a sequel and hope they will give us more of em.

The dvd is available now nationwide and also at online retailers like for $ 20.30.  This is  definitely a great movie to add to your movie collection so be sure to grab a copy today!  Also do not forget about Mother's Day since it would be a great gift for her!
