  1. Me n my partner r getting married in. December this is the best wedding gift sookk excited bette’s still got it n she looks amazing 🙂

  2. This makes a bitter old pill like myself absolutely giddy.

    I was just last night discussing how much I hope that Miss Midler takes this new period of her career playing some of those juicy Judi Dench/ Helen Mirren dramatic roles for an actress of “a certain age”. And I’m not a total a**hole, but I’m not usually a fan of the standard American family comedy. However…

    I think this is going to be something different! I mean, there are the obligatory scenes at the baseball field, the obligatory bat to the nuts scene, and the obligatory distance between family members, but this film looks like it’s got a lot of layers to it. Add to that the fact that Bette and Billy are kind of a perfect comic match (why hasn’t anybody ever thought of pairing them before?) and it’s golden. The icing on the cake are Bette’s mannerisms and all of the dancing that she does with her eyes and her face, and the realization that she has really gotten polished with her “hamminess”. I mean, how many of you all were totally grinning ear-to-ear when she told off the music instructor? Right?

    I LOVED Bette in “Then She Found Me” because I really enjoy watching the evolution of her career as an actress, and now “Parental Guidance” has me wanting even more from her. I can think of about a thousand of this type of movie (many also starring Billy Crystal) in the 90’s that would have done a lot better had they swapped out the forgotten actresses that populated the lead roles with Bette Midler.

    Merry Christmas, indeed!

    And think of all of the interviews we have to look forward to before Christmas, y’all!!!

    1. Great commentary as always, Gracie. From what I have heard it does have many layers like that of Parenthood. I’m really looking forward to this and hope it brings her many more roles….xx
