Parental Guidance

Come on, Billy Crystal, you're better than this. In what is sure to be a holiday comedy popular with families this Christmas, Parental Guidance, with the once great star of City Slickers and When Harry Met Sally and Bette Midler, has a new trailer. Walden Media was able to send this trailer all the way from 1995 judging by the comedy on display. In addition, the frame of a holiday movie with the music choice, snow falling over production logos and more tries to sell it as a holiday movie even though there's no Christmas or even Hanukkah to be found. Did you know cake makes kids go crazy? How wacky! *facepalm*

Here's the new trailer for Andy Fickman's Parental Guidance, originally from MSN:

Old school grandfather Artie (Billy Crystal), who is accustomed to calling the shots, meets his match when he and his eager-to-please wife (Bette Midler) agree to babysit their three grandkids when their parents (Marisa Tomei, Tom Everett Scott) go away for work. But when 21st century problems collide with Artie and Diane’s old school methods of tough rules, lots of love and old-fashioned games, it’s learning to bend – and not holding your ground – that binds a family together. Directed by Andy Fickman (You Again, The Game Plan, Race to Witch Mountain) from a story written by Billy Crystal and a script from Lisa Addario and Joy Syracuse (the duo behind Surf's Up). The film hits theaters on December 25th for Christmas this winter.

The quality of the trailer seems to be from a VHS videotape.

Um this isn't a Christmas film - there's no sign of Christmas in it so why the Christmas graphics in the tites? Oh dear.

Awh, well at least all the younger actors and production people get to tell their parents and grandparents that they worked on a film with Billy Crystal. Thats nice

Nutshots! Home Alone music! A cameo from Tony Hawk! It's so 1990s, it's like someone put Uncle Buck in a blender with Cocoon.
