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.

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.

Bring a pillow, you'll thank me for this advice ten minutes after the movie starts. Barbara Streisand's character is very annoying, this movie would be more enjoyable if it was a silent film.
A slow moving picture, if you must see, wait for the DVD.

The best laughs were in the TV advertisements. Barbra Steisand is excellent as the neurotic Mother. Seth Rogen is good at being the continuously anxious, socially uncomfortable and unaware son who is trying to pitch a product with no idea how to accomplish his goal. Interesting trip across country with some expected outcomes. Not what I would recommend for a good set of laughs, more moments of anxiousness watching people stumble round each other. Would wait till on pay per view of NetFlix
