Old school grandfather Artie, who is accustomed to calling the shots, meets his match when he and his eager-to-please wife Diane agree to babysit their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents go away for work. Problems arise when the kids' 21st-century behavior collides with Artie and Diane's old-school methods.

Movie Talk
The film's gags are predictable and fairly lame, but the stars' diehard fans will enjoy Crystal's snarky one-liners and, yes, Midler's singing.

Chicago Reader
This grating family comedy resembles a sitcom in its flat lighting, patronizing music cues, and frames supplying little visual information apart from the actors' mugging faces.

Epoch Times
A more clichéd, cloying, and predictable treacle fest than 'Parental Guidance' you will not find-if you're an adult. That's why it's a pretty good film for small children!

I can't deny I did feel fonder of my own family afterward, mostly because I know none of them would ever make me sit through Parental Guidance.

Big Hollywood
A joyless and crude comedy that celebrates bathroom humor.

Windy City Times
The kids are mostly a drag and the schmaltz is poured on as thick as maple syrup, but if those by-the-numbers Disney '60s comedies with Suzanne Pleshette and Dean Jones...are your thing, Parental Guidance will warm you up over the holidays

People with brains they can't turn on and off for 90 minute stretches of holiday family togetherness will be driven to take some kind of painkiller before the final credits roll. Everyone else will be fine

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
Borscht Belt humor combines with serious schmaltz to produce this gummy formulaic family comedy.

Entertainment Weekly
After a while it seems to run out of jokes, maybe to make room for all the crying and hug-it-out family redemption in the last half hour.

A strong candidate for the worst movie I've seen all year.

Globe and Mail
One of those intergenerational embarrassment comedies in the Meet the Fockers line, where children can enjoy seeing grown-ups looking ridiculous.

Village Voice
An extended "in my day" joke intended to convey the superiority of old people over a lot of supposedly contemporary behavior that doesn't actually exist in real life.
