"Your family is your anchor," says a dear friend.

Despite the conflicts and any other heavy collision, I think our family's part and parcel a backbone. They form one of the firmest strands of our makeup and they can never be washed away, no matter how long you stand against this rushing life.

Among many things, I enjoy watching movies with my little sister. It's our kambal time (kambal is Filipino for twin). It's out bonding time, and true enough, every film we watch together affirms our love and fondness of each other! With that, I look forward to this upcoming laughter-rich movie, Parental Guidance.

Despite the great divide between generations that parents, grandparents and children now face – “Parental Guidance” demonstrates that families are always in high fashion since then and now.

                An entertaining film for every generation, “Parental Guidance” is unique in that it portrays grandparents as active, funny and relevant. The film is true to life, examining the friction that arises when family members don’t see eye to eye. Riotously entertaining, “Parental Guidance” is full of mishaps, misadventures and broad physical comedy.

“When people leave the theater after watching the film, I hope they say, ‘I know those people; in fact, that’s us,” Crystal says.  “Parental Guidance” is going to mean something different for grandparents, parents and children.  And I think if you’re doing that, you’re doing something good.”

                “Parental Guidance” opens January 16 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

How about you? How do you bond with your family?
