Parental Guidance

Parental Guidance Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Director: Andy Fickman
Writers: Lisa Addario, Lowell Ganz, Babaloo Mandel

Parental Guidance Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Parental Guidance was filmed predominantly on 35mm, with a few select scenes shot with the Panavision Genesis HD camera and—by the looks of it, though I haven't verified—maybe a GoPro or two during the skateboarding sequence. All this transfers relatively well to Fox's 1080p/AVC Blu-ray encode, which seems true to both the source materials and the film's generic family comedy visual aesthetic. The combination of a chunky film stock and spherical lenses means that grain is quite pronounced, even in brighter scenes, which has the inherent effect of softening the image, leaving facial and clothing textures looking a little muddled. Still, there's plenty of high definition detail here, and the thick grain is far better than the alternative—a picture that's been smeared over with digital noise reduction and then artificially sharpened with edge enhancement. There are a few moments when black levels get the best of shadow detail—see the screenshot of Artie in the public restroom with Barker—but otherwise, contrast is balanced and color is as dense and vivid as it needs to be. I didn't spot any other notable compression or source issues besides some pixilation/jagginess during the few POV skateboard shots. Overall, a suitable but short of impressive high definition picture.


Parental Guidance Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Similarly, Parental Guidance features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that does its job but doesn't particularly exert any special effort, which is fine considering this is a low-key family comedy. The rear speakers are only sparsely utilized for anything other than quiet ambience—light room noise, raining falling, that sort of thing—with only one or two notable cross-channel effects, like the back-to-front plane engine roar near the start of the film. Composer Marc Shaiman—Bette Midler's longtime producer/musical director—pads the onscreen action with a score that cries "light hijinks," and the mix has a great sense of clarity, if lacking in engagement or dynamic breadth. Most importantly, dialogue is always clear and easy to understand. The disc also includes an English descriptive audio track, Spanish and French Dolby Digital 5.1 dubs, and optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
