After a slow start the movie takes off... triggering smiles and outright laughter. Excellent script, great performances. But as a mother of two grown single sons who live far away, I must admit that much of the joy of this movie for me was that I "related" so much to the story. My daughter easily communicates her love for me, but over the years it as been different with my unmarried sons. This movie is a wry take on the complex communication problems between mothers and sons. While it is fun for everyone, it resonates particularly for single mothers who have reared an independent, loving, but sometimes confounding son.
My advice to anyone interested in "grown-up" movies that touch your heart and your funny bone: Don't miss "The Guilt Trip."

B.S. has not lost a beat. She brings her best, but it's not really enough to carry this slow drive. It has some sweet moments, but most of it is just too realistic to be entertainment. Dudes & kids will hate it. I with with my 74 yr. old mother and 65 yr. old friend and they found it 'ok'. I think I was the youngest chick in the audience and I'm 51.

Awh! This is a mood movie for those who are close to their mother and mother's who want to spend more tme with their child(ren) when the child is grown and really doesn't interact much. It will make you smile a bit and touch your heart when you see how each sacrificed for the other. All I can say is kisses!

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.
