It's hard to believe Seth Rogen can be consistent for all these years considering how much weed he smokes. I hit up the vaporizer once a week or so and I find it hard to do anything other than to drag myself to work monday through saturday. Anyone with an overbearing parent, or at least one that acts that way to make it look good, will appreciate this movie as it explores the typical dysfunctional family. When mom and son hit the road for this trip, each stop along the way is not only funny but provides a deeper look into the relationship and how both are dependent on the other. Barbera Streisand somehow looks like she hasn't aged in some time and Seth Rogen pulls off the perfect awkward only child. When they get to their final destination you get an unexpected surprise which make the ending perfect in my opinion. And get yourself some scio-clean.

A perfect New Year Eve movie ...easy going ... laughter ... especially if you know or are on either end of mother -son relationship. We enjoyed it and recommend seeing it ... well written, acted and directed.

If you want to see a lighthearted comedy, without the dirty jokes or a lot of explosions, go see this one. This was a great film. I thought Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand had great chemistry in this one. There is a message being delivered here. I would highly recommend seeing this one. If you are expecting the dirty jokes and graphic scenes, u wont see it in this one. Just a good all around comedy....Go see It!!

Film okay. I really didn't like the combination of actors, both of them made me somewhat uncomfortable. I think Seth is a little too unpolished to have "a masters degree in chemistry" and not very refined to be the son of someone represented by B. Streisand. Eventually it seemed like the film dragged--I wished it would end; I was tired of a replay of the same events in different settings. Recommend: Barbra Streisand was better in "The Fockers"; save her talent for a much better, more believeable movie.

Although this movie won't win any academy awards, it was good light hearted entertainment. With all of the troubles in this world it was nice to go watch something that was not so heavy. Go see it!
