The Guilt Trip

ages 14+ | 45 % Say It's Worth Your Time

Before embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime road trip, Andy Brewster (Seth Rogen) pays a visit to his overbearing mother, Joyce (Barbra Streisand). That proves to be a big mistake; Andy caves in under pressure to take his mom along for the ride. Early on -- as the miles roll by -- Andy feels nothing but aggravation at her antics. Eventually however, he comes to realize that they have more in common than he first thought and that Joyce's wisdom might be just what he needs.

    No Maturity Rating | Worth Your Time

    The Guilt Trip stars Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand, who do really well with the source material they’ve been given. Seth’s dry delivery and Barbra’s spot–on portrayal of an obsessed mother nearly save a mediocre script and a fairly run of the mill plot. There is a nice little twist at the end, however, and while there aren’t as many laughs as there should be, it’s good enough to watch once. Mothers with grown, neglectful sons will probably enjoy it the most... See Full Review

    It's not so much of a comedy as it is a reality check for those of us who could probably spend a bit more time with our folks

    This movie was a waste of my time. I was hoping that this movie would be funny. I felt like I was waiting the whole movie for it to take off. This is a movie that I will not be buying. If you want to see it get it on a redbox and take it back the same day.

    This is a very good character movie. It rolls along, just like the trip they are on. If you need lots of noise and blood to keep you entertained, this one isn't for you. If you like real character stories, this will do just fine!

    By turns amusing and touching, director Anne Fletcher's picture, which sees both Streisand and Rogen in top form, registers as enjoyable fare for grownups... Read full review here

    ...painfully unfunny movie with this dull slog across America... The inevitable irritations, revelations, accusations, and reconciliations occur, and through it all, Rogen and Streisand almost never change expression... Read full review here

    The only remotely funny moments are saved for the outtakes that appear after the closing credits. Mostly what audiences will come away with after sitting through this predictable, cliched and ultimately gooey mother-son bonding experience is how good Streisand looks at 70...
