Comedy movies have never been my forte, but this one was better than I anticipated. Unlike other modern-day comedy films I have encountered, that usually are purely for laughs and streamed with inappropriate jokes, this movie actually had interesting characters. Along the story-line of old vs. new seems to be a bit cliche at first, the movie is left with a good message.
The situation in the movie is that an elderly couple is asked to watch their only daughter's children. The daughter and her parents haven't had such a good relationship in the past years, and by watching her children the grandmother hopes to gain her daughter's trust again. However, the daughter prefers a very gentle, sensitive, and over-protective approach to parenting, while her parents prefer to parent the old-fashioned classic way. This two sides clash, and the family struggles with some ups and downs, but eventually every character learns something about themselves.
I liked this movie better than numerous comedy movies, because while also making me laugh at several scenes, this movie had a good message and story that I cared about.
