Movie Review - Parental Guidance

We all wanted to go see Les Miserables. Unfortunately it was sold out for the showing we went to see. Instead of waiting around for an hour and a half, we decided to see Billy Crystal's and Bette Midler's new movie Parental Guidance.

And it was just what I expected: a little corney (okay a lot corney) but cute. It had funny moments that made me think back and smile and I even laughed a couple of times.

But the story was heavy-handed, predictable and, like I said, corney. So, it was a fun way to spend an hour or two but not high on my list of recommendations--especially if you aren't a parent. Only a parent can relate to a lot of this humor (and my kids made sure I knew...yeah, they whined a bit after the show) but still not a bad way to enjoy the holidays with family and friends.

All-in-all I'd give it a:

Wow, that plus really dresses up that D.

I am on the fence, but figure hubs and I will enjoy it because it's just that part of life we're getting to.

One thing that's driving me nuts lately though is that the people playing me at my stage of life are 20 years older than me. Way to make me feel ancient, Hollywood!

Ouch! I haven't seen it, and have no plans to see it. I would like to see Les Mis though.

It doesn't sound interesting to me at all. But then again, it takes a lot to get me into a theater these days, especially for what they charge.
