This was an unexpectedly sweet movie and the previews and trailers don't adequately capture this. Streisand and Rogen have great chemistry and play off each other very well. I saw this in a preview viewing on Dec. 2nd and there were non-stop laughs all the way through by a packed theater. But it is the tenderness of the story and relevance in my own life that is especially moving. I cried nearly as much as I laughed. If you are a mother and have a grown son and can talk him into going, then do it. If not, take a friend. Regardless, don't miss it!

This movie was one of the worst I've seen in years. Don't waste your time. The only funny lines (of which there were few) were all shown in the coming attractions.

Myself and thirteen others of my " Red Hat" chapter went last night.
We loved it!! Laughed our 'butts' off, it was perfection. Even better
than any of us thought it would be. What a perfect duo these two
were, super believable as mother and son, even if your not Jewish!
I am, as well as everyone else with me last night, are telling every
one else to see this movie, it was excellent. I personally would expect
nothing less from Barbra Streisand - she is perfection and so real.
An exceptional movie for anyone over 16.
Wish I had a chance to do a road trip with my mom while she was
still on this earth...it would have been a hoot.

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.

While the characters add body to the film. The film lacked interest. Too much lag time between conversations, and too much dialogue that didn't capture excitment. Sentiment was there, but didn't tug at heart strings enough
