Stuff That Makes Me Giggle: Grandma vs. Grandma


I've actually wondered about this before, whether grandparents ever feel competitive with their grandkids' other set of grandparents. Now there's going to be a whole movie devoted to the concept. Paramount is producing Grandma vs. Grandma, a film about "two women with very different styles of child-rearing who babysit their grandkids for a month and compete for their affections."

Maybe it's because I'm getting a little punchy this late in the week, but for whatever reason this movie just strikes me as so funny. I hope it lives up to my expectations because now I have stupidly high expectations for a movie titled Grandma vs. Grandma. Anyway. What fierce older actresses can you envision playing these dueling grannies?

Lots of good choices! How 'bout Bette Midler as one of the grannies?

This does sound funny! I know that when I get old I will hope my gran-babies like me more than their other grandma!

I could totally see Gena Rowlands playing one of the grandmothers. I'd have to think about who should play the other one....

I imagine the actresses being in their 60's, so Susan Sarandon qualifies. I'd like to see Jane Fonda in a funnier comedy than "Monster in law".

I like the idea of Betty White and Cloris Leachman in the movie. It could be funny or stink worse than horse poop.

ok she's not old but I can see Susan Sarandon playing one of the Granmothers. And maybe for a complete opposite type Goldie Hawn (I initially thought Meg Ryan but she's probably too young) for the other Grandma? I think alot of actresses could pull this off.

Sounds like a cute plot for a movie, and I know of grandparents who felt kinda proud when they found out their grandkids have more fun with them than with their other grandparents :PI'd like Fionnula Flanagan (Lost, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood).
