Parental Guidance Review: Meet the Grandparents

by at . Comments

Simply looking at the Parental Guidance poster and one could tell that Billy Crystal is hoping for a Meet the Parents-type franchise with Parental Guidance. And who could blame him? All the elements are there with two comically gifted leads portraying grandparents (Crystal and Bette Midler) and an onscreen daughter in Marisa Tomei who can play both straight and silly with the material she's given. Then, there are the three young kids who could not be more talented and prove that old adage of "don't work with child actors" not to be the case with this movie.
