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.
From Jo: This movie is a mesh of the old school ways to the more modern ways and how they try to work it out. There’s a lot to be learned from old school ways. Billy Crystal’s performance is stellar. Very funny. It deals with the comedy side of parenting, but kids will definitely enjoy it as well.
