Some parts are pretty stupid, but intentional, I think. Pretty good movie.

I was randomly searching Netflix and this looked good. It was super funny and really good! Great for families, but the only problem is some crude humor. Stuff like mentions of private parts and one time Artie responds to his wife's comment about how sweet their son-in-law is, and he says : "Yeah, he's sweet. I think he breastfed the kids." There isn't tons of that stuff, but enough to notice.

I loved this movie. It's crazy...just like the actors that play the parts. I will borrow this one again.

I like Bet Miller and Billy Crystal, so it was nice to see them in a movie together. The movie was okay. There were some funny parts. I especially like the critique of today's parenting where no kid can lose, and how we shouldn't say no. Something to think about. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this movie. Overall, the movie was okay, not fantastic, so I gave it three stars.

An amazing, funny, movie. This comedy is first class, leaving me smiling. I loved the jokes!

The library description of the movie really isn't that accurate.

A family movie we all can enjoy. Not over the top funny....but funny enough to make you laugh.

Not hugely hilarious, but some good laughs and heart.

I had to agree with Farty in a lot of the things he said. It is okay to use your words and NO is a word, don't be afraid to use it. I am glad that R-Life is not part of my life. Good parts in this movie.

Great comedy. Two generations view on parenting.

My 8-year old loves this movie, she thinks it's hilarious!! I really like it too, and would recommend it for a family movie night with elementary/middle school age kids.

If you ever talk to my granddaughter like that again, all that will be left of you is some red hair and an accent.
