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 offers up a friendly reminder of the important role the older generation play..”
by Chris Knight [Canada.com]
“..alas, prevents this from being a genuine crowdpleaser, with the better moments (mostly of the schmaltzy variety) more than offset by the irritating and tedious ones..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
“..there is nothing profound here, but if Artie being called "Farty" by a pre-schooler takes your fancy, then you'll have a laugh..”
by Francesca Rudkin [The New Zealand Herald]
