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

It was one of the worst "comedy's" I have ever seen. No-one in the theater was laughing. MY friend and I left after a gruelling 45 minutes!!!!!! Perhaps the laughs came towards the end of the movie. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!!!!!!! Total waste of my time.

This movie was super sweet and I personally found it hilarious because it really reminded me of my own mom! Long story short, great movie to watch with the family for just with the parent(s)!

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.

If only this interminable road trip would have just covered the state of New Jersey instead of an eight day jaunt from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean; tedium reigns, with intermittent levity. A mother/son "Joyce" and "Andy" (Barbra Streisand/Seth Rogen) bond over predictable quips and tons of shtick; weary of the overbearing stereotype of the smothering "Jewish Mother" and the smothered, pampered boy (who is approaching forty); Jewish mothers do not have a monopoly on suffocation of their progeny. Avoiding blatant heavy-handedness, religion is never addressed in "The Guilt Trip"...
Streisand and Rogen, also producers, have chemistry and save the scenario from topping (or toppling) the saccharine scale; their histrionics realistic, salvaging, placating their emotional commitment...
TWO & 1/2 STARS!!
