Good movie!

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!

Sweet Movie-Great Chemistry

By ladywalker68

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!

GUILT TRIP

I was disappointed in this film, it is slow from start to finish. The acting is fine; but nothing great. The storyline is OK yet mundane. There's not much more to say or review. There is no excitement or suspence to remark on. It's simply a slow non eventful film. Sorry I couldn't add to the hype on this film. I would pass on it at the theater and the DVD when released.

The Guilt of not staying at home

By gaillewisus

While the characters add body to the film. The film lacked interest. Too much lag time between conversations, and too much dialogue that didn't capture excitment. Sentiment was there, but didn't tug at heart strings enough
