Award winning actor Billy Crystal sends his holiday greetings to the National Stuttering Association, and would like everyone to get out and see his latest film, Parental Guidance, premiering Christmas Day 2012. Parental Guidance is a family comedy in which old school grandfather Artie (Billy Crystal), who is accustomed to calling the shots, meets his match when he and his eager-to-please wife Diane (Bette Midler) agree to babysit their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents (Marisa Tomei, Tom Everett Scott) go away for work. One of the grandchildren speaks with a stutter that is touched upon throughout the film in a believable and lighthearted manner.
