Annoying start, strong ending! Barbra Streisand is a natural! Seth Rogen - Perfect!

The annoying nagging in the beginning almost lost me but surprisingly this show comes into its own very quickly. There are many laugh-out-loud moments. Barbra Streisand is a natural on screen. She hit the mark playing this part. Seth Rogen was perfect. As a mother of an adult son, I have to say there is a lot of truth in this film and it was captured in a light-hearted way. The Guilt Trip comes full-circle with a strong ending.

This movie was really good! It was so relevant for a mother with a 20 something child. Both of us were in stitches.Seth and Babs had great chemistry! It's also refreshing to see a movie that kept the time to an hour and a half.

Pretty good movie to pass a rainy afternoon with your girl. Didn't like the sound in the theatre (AMC) - way too loud, and at times, painful (Sony Digital Sound).

A wacky dramedy about family that's worth a trip to the movies

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.
