Comedic Introduction by Ophira Eisenberg

Buckle up for a hilarious rollercoaster ride with the Buckmans, a bunch of lovable misfits navigating the ups and downs of parenthood with all the grace of a bull in a china shop. Through the spills, thrills, and bellyaches, Parenthood celebrates embracing the chaos, finding humor in the messiness, and realizing that the accurate measure of parental success isn’t in perfection but in the joy of the journey. Stuffed with an all-star cast including Steve Martin and a baby-faced Joaquin Phoenix, parents everywhere will relate to the warm and entertaining depiction of the foibles of family life.

"Ron Howard's Parenthood is a delicate balancing act between comedy and truth, a movie that contains a lot of laughter and yet is more concerned with character than punch lines."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
