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.

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.

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 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.
