I enjoyed THE GUILT TRIP a lot. It is a very sweet film. Don't let the trailers fool you into believing it's a raucous FOCKERS-like comedy. There's no dirty jokes or special effects or explosions in The Guilt Trip?just some great Streisand/Rogen chemistry ... and a big heart.
It's a small movie about a mother and a son.
And what a pleasure to see Barbra back on the big screen! As Joyce, she hits all the right notes. Barbra is so relaxed and natural in the movie. Rogen plays "embarrassed son" well, and his character does some growing up over the coarse of the movie.
Bring your mom, a date, or a friend. The end is touching and might bring a tear to your eye.
