After a slow start the movie takes off... triggering smiles and outright laughter. Excellent script, great performances. But as a mother of two grown single sons who live far away, I must admit that much of the joy of this movie for me was that I "related" so much to the story. My daughter easily communicates her love for me, but over the years it as been different with my unmarried sons. This movie is a wry take on the complex communication problems between mothers and sons. While it is fun for everyone, it resonates particularly for single mothers who have reared an independent, loving, but sometimes confounding son.
My advice to anyone interested in "grown-up" movies that touch your heart and your funny bone: Don't miss "The Guilt Trip."
