This is a really great family film – I enjoyed it from beginning to end! Billy Crystal and Bette Midler are grandparents who get stuck babysitting their grandchildren of Type-A, high-strung, over-protective parents (Marisa Tomei). Hilarity ensues when a technological house and the grand-kids take over. It is up to the grandparents to keep the children safe and sound until the parents get back from their trip. One of my favorite scenes was the duet of "The Book of Love" between Midler and Crystal. All around a great comical family movie, and a positive overall message at the end about bringing families together. (Watch after the credits for funny outtakes, too – it looks like they had a blast making the movie!). -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
