Photos: Amanda Bynes' Parents And Grandmother Are Totally Normal-Looking

Amanda Bynes was recently ordered to stay in a psychiatric hospital for another 30 days, with doctors saying that she would be a danger to herself if she were to be released. As she straightens things out, her parents are hoping that they'll be granted conservatorship when she's released.

And judging by these pictures, they'd be just the people for the job.

Taken when they went to see a movie in L.A. on August 9, we just had to point out how lovely, together and downright normal they seem. Not a stage mother in sight; nary a philandering or drunken dad on the horizon. And yes, that's her grandmother, also looking delightfully grandmother-ly.

Here's hoping that Bynes can get better and turn out, in the end, like these wonderful folk.
