A good family filmBy mistrom from Essex , 04 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This film is for all those who have a family.
Ron Howards film has Steve Martin in the role as a father and depicts modern family life. It shows generations of parents and all the stresses that being a parent brings.
With a strong cast this film is a comedy and well worth watching...

Parenthood reviewBy a customer , 17 Sep 2013This is quite an old film but its still relevant today. It is centred around Gil (Steve Martin) and the trials and tribulations of family life. Basically I think the message is that however hard we try when bringing up children we will make mistakes, they just might be different from the ones our parents made! However it is done in a funny and heartfelt way that ensures it doesn't border on the cheesy. There are some laugh out loud parts that ring true in our lives today. The ending is a little conveniently wrapped up but its no bad thing. Enjoy!
One of my favourite films of all.By The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 25 Feb 2013I have watched this film several times and have no hesitation in awarding it its perfect 5 stars. Great cast, script, and very poignant. Makes you laugh and cry all the way through. Every parent should watch this.
Tips for perfect parenting?By a customer , 10 Nov 2011This is one of my all time favourite films, a typical family who try to deal with all the ups and downs that life provides on a daily basis. The range of charcaters is just perfect and covers every aspect of family life, although this is an 80's film, it is still as relevant today. Ron Howard has an exceptional eye for detail and it is often the little moments that are the most poignant and meaningful, Steve Martin is not his usual 'slap stick' self but a Father struggling to do the right thing for his family. Watch this film and ride the rollercoaster that is their life!

Still good after all these years...By a customer from Billingshurst , 28 Jul 2009I last watched this film when I was a child and enjoyed it then. Now that I'm about to become a father for the first time I thought I'd check it out and I'm glad to say that despite the film having dated in many ways the overiding themes on family and responsibility still ring true. Check it out.
