A new trailer for the family comedy Parental Guidance has been released.  Directed by Andy Fickman, the film stars Billy Crystal and Bette Midler as two grandparents who have a hard time finding middle ground with their three modernized grandchildren.  This trailer ups the ante in the physical comedy department, as it features all the hallmarks of a very lame family comedy in under two minutes: nutshots, someone’s pants getting sprayed with water, kids going crazy after eating sugar, etc.  Most of the gags and jokes seem really dated, and I’m not exactly sure Crystal and Midler’s comedy will translate well to modern audiences.  Nevertheless, I’m sure parents will eat this one up.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Marisa Tomei and Tom Everett ScottParental Guidance opens on Christmas Day.

Here’s the synopsis for Parental Guidance:

Old school grandfather Artie, who is accustomed to calling the shots, meets his match when he and his eager-to-please wife Diane agree to babysit their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents go away for work. But when 21st century problems collide with Artie and Dianes old school methods of tough rules, lots of love and old-fashioned games, its learning to bend – and not holding your ground – that binds a family together.
