This is one amazing heart warming movie. If you’re looking for a nice cozy day movie, this is the best movie for you. George Clooney is out of the world ! Can watch it again and again and this movie would still be my favourite. No nudity, sex, swearing, just simple and classic. Underrated

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

Sometimes the parents' constant bickering threatens to bring the movie down, but the kids save these scenes from descending into nastiness with their cute antics. And when the adults' identical-looking cell phones accidentally get switched, this makes for an enjoyable running gag.

Melanie and Jack gamely try to balance their workdays with parenting, a tactic that yields both disastrous results and touching moments. A final romantic sequence feels a bit too long and slow compared with the rest of the movie's quick-moving plot, but overall it's entertaining.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
