Parental Guidance


Love, love, loved this movie!  Billy Crystal and Bette Midler play grandparents who are asked to come babysit their grandkids that they don’t see very often.  There are 2 helicopter parents with a new age way of parenting, 3 kids that have their rules of governing themselves, and 2 old school grandparents who are in for the ride of their lives.  There is a lot of crazy stuff that happens, a lot of laughs as we see Billy and Bette trying to copy their daughters ways of parenting and kids that really don’t know their grandparents and aren’t thrilled about being with them.  The three kids all have personal issues they’re dealing with and along the way we see them getting closer to their grandparents and the family overcoming the obstacles that first separated them.  I am very sentimental about this film because I am a grandma of 9, so forgive me if I get a little weepy, but it really is a heart-felt movie about the little things in our lives that create the bonds and the memories that we will always have of our family.
