In theaters this holiday season, PARENTAL GUIDANCE stars BETTE MIDLER and BILLY CRYSTAL as unconventional grandparents drafted into babysitting service when their daughter calls with an emergency request for assistance. Directed by ANDY FICKMAN from a script that was punched up by iconic screenwriters LOWELL GANZ and BABALOO MANDEL, the cast also includes MARISA TOMEI, TOM EVERETT SCOTT, GEDDE WATANABE, BAILEE MADISON, RHODA GRIFFIS and DWAYNE BOYD.
As adept at comedy as she is at drama, BETTE MIDLER has always leaned towards the laughs. Be it live concerts, big-screen films (even short-lived TV series’), MIDLER knows how to work a comic line. During an interview we did with her a few years ago, she talked about setting her sights on the funny. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO) LANGUAGE NSFW
