As a mother with grown sons I understood exactly how the mother ( Barbra Streisand) felt. I laughed, but also shed a couple tears during the hotel scene when she told him exactly how she felt. Young children would not understand this movie. My husband found it very funny.
It summed up a lot of the things a mother feels. I loved the ending!

Barbara Streisand is fantastic in this movie....she is clever, funny and heartwarming.......I would recommend seeing this movie if you are looking for a really good uplifting family movie.

This was an unexpectedly sweet movie and the previews and trailers don't adequately capture this. Streisand and Rogen have great chemistry and play off each other very well. I saw this in a preview viewing on Dec. 2nd and there were non-stop laughs all the way through by a packed theater. But it is the tenderness of the story and relevance in my own life that is especially moving. I cried nearly as much as I laughed. If you are a mother and have a grown son and can talk him into going, then do it. If not, take a friend. Regardless, don't miss it!

This movie was super sweet and I personally found it hilarious because it really reminded me of my own mom! Long story short, great movie to watch with the family for just with the parent(s)!
