Parental Guidance (2012)

Director: Andy Fickman. Cast: Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, Marisa Tomei. 105 min. Rated PG. Comedy.

Crystal and Midler babysit the "perfectly" reared grandchildren they haven't seen in a year, with predictable terrible results. Some good upbringing messages here (notably, ridiculing the whole pathetic concept of not saying "No" to kids in fear of affecting their self-esteem), but the supposed comedic situations are so ludicrously lame and lousy, it would be embarrassing to recommend this to anybody. Crystal is a good comedian, but his zero flexibility in movies makes him forgettable.
