Before there was the excellent show Parenthood (that’s about to enter its final season on NBC and has all previous seasons available on Netflix so go watch them!), there was the 1989, Ron Howard-directed film. What made Parenthood such an enormous success with both audiences and critics, aside from the stellar cast that included Moranis, Steve Martin, Mary Steenburgen, Martha Plimpton, and Keanu Reeves (among many others), was the realism of the movie. No matter the size or personality of your family, there was something intrinsically relatable about the characters in Parenthood, and that’s what made it such an enjoyable film for many.
