Have you seen the preview for the new movie Parental Guidance? It’s a comedy starring Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, Marisa Tomei, Tom Everett Scott, and Bailee Madison about parenting and different generations in a family. I usually love these types of movies, and am looking forward to seeing this one. And I love Billy Crystal, he’s so funny! The movie comes out next week, on Christmas day. Here’s a brief synopsis, and the trailer.
Old school grandfather Artie (Billy Crystal), who is accustomed to calling the shots, meets his match when he and his eager-to-please wife Diane (Bette Midler) agree to babysit their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents (Marisa Tomei, Tom Everett Scott) go away for work. But when 21st century problems collide with Artie and Diane’s old school methods of tough rules, lots of love and old-fashioned games, it’s learning to bend – and not holding your ground – that binds a family together.
