Parental Guidance (2012)

Directed by
Andy Fickman

Busy working parents Alice (Marisa Tomei) and Phil (Tom Everett Scott) desperately need a holiday, but there's the small matter of finding someone to watch kids Harper (Bailee Madison), Turner (Joshua Rush) and Barker (Kyle Harrison Breitkopf) first.

Alice's parents Artie (Billy Crystall) and Diane (Bette Midler) are hardly top of the list, but in desperation, they are invited to Atlanta to take care of the Simmons brood. However, grandma and grandpa quickly find that Phil's tech-tastic 'smart-house' and Alice's uptight modern parenting methods clash chaotically with their own old-school sensibilities, leading Artie to try to redress the balance.

With tearaway tots, frazzled parents and sidelined seniors, there's something for everyone to identify with in You Again director Andy Fickman's generation-spanning comedy. Though it firmly takes the side of the golden oldies, kids will love the slapstick humour while fans of Crystal and Midler should enjoy their fun, freewheeling turns.
