Not only does Barbara Streisand somehow manage to look like she's still 50 in this film, but she's actually funny, annoying and touching at pretty much the same time. The casting for this film (which both stars also produced) generates just the right chemistry for entertainment and the result is an enjoyable film that touches the heart of a mother and son relationship from the valleys to the peaks. I liked it a lot and can confidently suggest that you see for yourself during the holidays. You won't regret it, especially f the popcorn was as good as mine was.

I knew it wasn't going to be a serious drama (certainly not with Seth Rogen sharing top billing), but it was enjoyable.
Babs was funny and neurotic and a nudge, but lovable nonetheless.
Go in with expectations of having fun and laughing and you'll be rewarded.

I rated this movie a "MUST GO" because I loved it and enjoyed myself very much but I can see how not everyone would feel this way. The whole movie is just Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand going back and forth. There isn't a lot of interaction with other characters and there aren't any 'just-for-laughs" scenes. It's what it claims to be: a mom and a son on a trip. It's very raw and enjoyable because they're both such good actors. The movie really touches your heart and makes you want to go hug your mom. If you're looking for an over the top, fun ride (which is what I was expecting) don't go but if you want to feel some warm feelings and have a good laugh (or develop a crush on Seth Rogen) then this movie is just for you!

I think that most people can relate to this movie in some way. A mother and son on a trip can be funny, but this is more than a comedy. Without his mothers knowledge Andy plans on taking his mother to see an old boyfriend. The scene when they find his house is priceless. I really enjoyed the whole movie and I think most adults will too. Not for small kids though.

Guilt Trip was an overall slow tempo-ed movie with a mash up between two generations of movie goers, the 20-30 year olds who are drawn in by Seth Rogen and the 40-60 year old Barbara Streisand fans. We expected a movie full of laugh out loud moments, but found ourselves halfheartedly giggling several times. The movie does have a good story line but is a bit slow paced. Not your typical Set Rogen movie, better suited for the Streisand fans.
