Gregg's Review

I like being thrown for a curve, and Quentin Tarantino always does. I'm gonna tip my hat to him, this is a great movie.

5 Bags of Popcorn, 1 Toy Pistol Filled With Soft Drink

A western, with slaves in it. And very violent.

4 Bags of Popcorn

Artie and Diane agree to look after their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents need to leave town for work. Problems arise when the kids' 21st-century behavior collides with Artie and Diane's old-school methods.

Tim's Review

They managed to combine family values with comedy in a way that I haven't seen since probably Monsters Inc.

6 Bags of Popcorn, 2 Glasses of Soda

Gregg's Review

The whole Billy Crystal/Bette Midler pairing has always worked for me in other movies, and now in this. And you throw in these three lovable but difficult kids and it's just a recipe for fun.
