Parental Guidance (U)

Parental Guidance (U)


Artie and Diane agree to look after their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents need to leave town for work. Problems arise when the kids' 21st-century behaviors collide with Artie and Diane's old-school methods.

The critical consensus

Harmless family comedy.

They left it late, but the makers of Parental Guidance may just have clinched the palm for Worst Family Entertainment of 2012.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 27/12/2012

Will their unconventional parenting prove hit or miss with today’s mollycoddled kids? Just as ghastly as it sounds.

**(*)(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 28/12/2012

Parental Guidance is a brutal comedy of bad manners in which the grandparents from hell descend on the daughter and son-in-law from purgatory to dispute whose right it is to impose their values on a new generation emerging from the corner of the map bearing the sign "Here Be Dragons".

Philip French, The Observer, 30/12/2012

Cue too many gags about poo and getting hit in the crotch with a baseball bat.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 30/12/2012

Goes for easy targets.
