Opening Christmas Day is director Andy Fickman’s (You Again) family comedy Parental Guidance. The film stars Billy Crystal and Bette Midler as two grandparents who have a hard time finding middle ground with their three modernized grandchildren. Marisa Tomei and Tom Everett Scott play the parents. For more on the film, here’s the trailer.
During the recent Los Angeles press day I spoke to Fickman. He talked about how he got involved in the project, how the project changed from what Billy Crystal originally pitched him, improv on set, deleted scenes and future projects. Hit the jump to watch.
