Story


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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's so busy being hip, edgy and metaphorical that it forgets to be funny, real or exciting..”
by Christopher Tookey [Daily Mail [UK]]
“..there are poo gags, too, and youngsters may find all of this a hoot, but grown-ups may feel a bit left out..”
by Stella Papamichael [Digital Spy]
“..the schmaltz is piled on thick, and if the comedy were any broader it would require an Imax screen..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
