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).

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!!

Although this movie won't win any academy awards, it was good light hearted entertainment. With all of the troubles in this world it was nice to go watch something that was not so heavy. Go see it!

This is a sweet and funny movie that will warm you up. Seth Rogan fans will recognize and like his grown up character and the chemistry with Barbra Streisand seems genuine and well done. The plot is somewhat familiar because this is a road trip, but there are some twists that make this a more grown up version. There are laughs and some tears, but overall I rate this as a comedy well-done. I enjoyed it a lot and the audience seemed to agree as there were many laughs heard throughout the theater. Lots of movies out at this time of year, but this one will really fit the season.
