About Parental Guidance
Artie (Billy Crystal) is a student of the old school style of parenting: he calls the shots and he won't give in to spoiled brats no matter how much they whine. His daughter Alice (Marisa Tomei) and her husband (Tom Everett Scott) are loving but over-protective parents who coddle their three kids and seem content to hover anxiously over them at all times. When they have to travel for work Alice asks Artie and his wife Diane (Bette Midler) to look after the kids. Artie is not happy but Diane is delighted...until they have to deal with the kids' supersoakers and Ben10 obsessions and stickers and whatnot. Old-fashioned Artie doesn't approve of his daughter's more modern approach and tries to bully the kids into being well-behaved.
