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.
The parents of Alice, a controlled mom, agree to take care of her 3 crazy children, Harper, Turner and Barker, because they feel they don't see their grandchildren enough, when Alice and her husband Phil go on a business trip for Phil. But when everything goes downhill, they need to find a way to prove to Alice, Phil, and themselves that they can be great grandparents.
The movie was shot in late fall-early winter. The grass at the Atlanta home was dead, and had to be digitally colored green. See more »
Artie mentions a kiss-cam and marriage proposal happening on the scoreboard, which is happening during a conference on the mound. These events typically are shown between innings instead of in the middle of one. And marriage proposals are typically done in the fourth inning, not the ninth. See more »
This is truly one of the most awful pieces of trash ever made.
How do I summarize this? I don't - it's awful.
The plot is utterly predictable, the acting awful, the (otherwise talented) cast horribly misused, and the whole exercise is pointless. On the upside... there simply is no upside. This movie has no redeeming features.
I endured this movie simply because I have never walked out on a movie ever. But it was an act of will power not to walk out on this rubbish.
How this utter bilge could score 5.8 out of 10 brings IMDb's rating system into utter disrepute.
