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.

Loved this movie and laughed most of the time! You'll only like this if you have grown children, especially boys! Barbara Streisand was wonderful, and she and Seth make a terrific pair.

I was pleased to see an almost filled theatre with a wide range of ages enjoying this funny, touching movie...
Barbra and Seth were very good together. I would not mind seeing them together again...

Film okay. I really didn't like the combination of actors, both of them made me somewhat uncomfortable. I think Seth is a little too unpolished to have "a masters degree in chemistry" and not very refined to be the son of someone represented by B. Streisand. Eventually it seemed like the film dragged--I wished it would end; I was tired of a replay of the same events in different settings. Recommend: Barbra Streisand was better in "The Fockers"; save her talent for a much better, more believeable movie.
