Parental Guidance Movie Giveaway (giveaway 12/22/12)

Coming to theaters on Christmas Day (December 25, 2012) is a new film from 20th Century Fox film called Parental Guidance. The film stars Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, Marisa Tomei and Tom Everett Scott.

Here is the film’s synopsis;

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.

The movie looks funny. I think Billy Crystal and Better Midler would have the ideal movie chemistry. They are both goofy, so together they must be hilarious.

Here is a trailer for the film. If you are reading this via e-mail you can find the trailer here, http://bit.ly/VhWV8S.


I think many parents can relate to this film. How many times have your parents, or in-laws, tried to “parent” your children they way you were raised, even though you are trying to do things your own way?

The movie opens on Christmas Day when many families will be getting together. This would be a fun movie to see with the whole family, including your parents and children.
