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 Trip is guilty of trying to be a comedy

The best laughs were in the TV advertisements. Barbra Steisand is excellent as the neurotic Mother. Seth Rogen is good at being the continuously anxious, socially uncomfortable and unaware son who is trying to pitch a product with no idea how to accomplish his goal. Interesting trip across country with some expected outcomes. Not what I would recommend for a good set of laughs, more moments of anxiousness watching people stumble round each other. Would wait till on pay per view of NetFlix

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.

Not bad for a Chick-Flick

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).

Go See It

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!!
