With excellent box office receipts and acclaim, 2012's "Parental Guidance" was a return to form for comedian Billy Crystal, who starred with Bette Midler as an old-school grandparent who learns a few new tricks -- and teaches a few, too -- while his daughter and son-in-law go out of town. Andy Fickman directed the film; Marisa Tomei and Tom Everett Scott also starred.
