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.

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).

but this movie wasn't bad. There were some really funny parts, and Barbara Streisand was perfectly cast as an overbearing Jewish mother. I just wish Seth Rogen was funnier? The movie felt so contrived and predictable, but at least it was sweet and delivered on good natured.

Film okay. I really didn't like the combination of actors, both of them made me somewhat uncomfortable. I think Seth is a little too unpolished to have "a masters degree in chemistry" and not very refined to be the son of someone represented by B. Streisand. Eventually it seemed like the film dragged--I wished it would end; I was tired of a replay of the same events in different settings. Recommend: Barbra Streisand was better in "The Fockers"; save her talent for a much better, more believeable movie.
