Parental Guidance Opens Christmas Day

20th Century Fox invited me to a screening of Parental Guidance last week. I really wasn't expecting too much, but it turned out to be an incredibly sweet film that is the kind of movie you can take every generation of your family to and they'll all enjoy it.

Of course, having Bette Midler and Billy Crystal star doesn't hurt it any either. There are lots of laughs, a few tears and some fun musical numbers, including one that takes place in a public restroom, that is not to be missed!

The story is the age old issue of grandparents thinking their children's child raising philosophy is ridiculous. I'll admit it is a bit corny in places but it serves the story. Experiencing failure turns out to be just as important for the grandparents and parents as it is for the kids.
