If only this interminable road trip would have just covered the state of New Jersey instead of an eight day jaunt from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean; tedium reigns, with intermittent levity. A mother/son "Joyce" and "Andy" (Barbra Streisand/Seth Rogen) bond over predictable quips and tons of shtick; weary of the overbearing stereotype of the smothering "Jewish Mother" and the smothered, pampered boy (who is approaching forty); Jewish mothers do not have a monopoly on suffocation of their progeny. Avoiding blatant heavy-handedness, religion is never addressed in "The Guilt Trip"...
Streisand and Rogen, also producers, have chemistry and save the scenario from topping (or toppling) the saccharine scale; their histrionics realistic, salvaging, placating their emotional commitment...
TWO & 1/2 STARS!!

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!!

My husband and I loved this movie with Barbara Streisand! She is a great singer and comedian. She makes the whole movie worth while. Enjoyed all of it!
A fun movie to see compared to the junk and violence of other movies to be seen. Thank you for an entertaining evening!

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.
