I saw Billy Crystal (one of my all-time faves) interviewed on a late-night show a few weeks ago and after seeing a clip from his new movie “Parental Guidance”, I thought it was worth checking out. It is a really good movie! Is it one that you’d absolutely need to see in the theatre? No. But if you’re looking for a matinee flick or a heartwarming story, this is as good of a movie as any. Definitely rent it if nothing else. The best scene is within the first 5 minutes of the movie when he’s being fired from his job – a classic! The rest of the movie is good so don’t think it’s all down hill after the first 5 minutes. The supporting cast holds their own as well. I’ve loved Marisa Tomei ever since “My Cousin Vinny” (probably one of her best roles). She really does a great job in this flick. Although I’m not a Bette Midler fan (generally speaking), she was better than I thought she’d be. Be prepared for a few tears to come out if you’re not careful (no, none shed from me, but did get awfully close).
