Parental Guidance
Blu-ray ($22.99 / 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment)

Veterans Billy Crystal and Bette Midler team up to co-captain this inter-generational comedy about a pair of old-school grandparents, their uptight daughter (Marisa Tomei) and her hi-tech grandkids, all of whom learn new things about each other and themselves when life puts them together for a few initially not-so-smooth days. Not surprisingly, Crystal, playing a canned minor league baseball announcer, gets to do plenty of shtick about his beloved sport, and fans of jokes about pee-pee will find plenty about which to tee-hee. Extras include outtakes of gags and goofs, deleted scenes, commentary and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
