Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "The Guilt Trip" is tripe, but it's tripe that knows its audience. Seriously, take your mother. It'll be a mitzvah.
Rotten: Andrew [Rogen], who has invented an organic cleaning compound, pitches it to retailers in a succession of meetings across the country that have no grounding in any known reality.
Rotten: [A] lifeless comedy about an overbearing mother and her exasperated adult son ...
Rotten: [It] doesn't take every predictable detour, but it takes enough that the movie never ceases to feel overly familiar.
Barbra Streisand is the best
When I first heard of this movie I thought wow Barbra is back doing a movie and she's traveling across the country! But she didn't travel it was all Hollywood magic
A FUNNY BUT FORMULAIC ROAD TRIP COMEDY
"The Guilt Trip" is really more of a guilty pleasure than anything else. It stars Seth Rogen as an inventor who plans to drive cross-country in order to pitch his latest product. He invites his overbearing mom (Barbara Streisand) along in an attempt to fix her up with a past boyfriend in San Francisco (and of course, things don't exactly go according to plan). Rogen and Streisand share an easy chemistry as a charmingly dysfunctional mother-son duo who can never seem to agree on anything. Unfortunately, the comic talents are largely wasted in a formulaic plot that feels all too familiar. Still, the flick does benefit from a few undeniably funny moments and some heartfelt scenes of mother-son bonding. Even if the script is packed with one too many sentimental clichés, this is still a fun little movie to watch if you're in the mood for some lighthearted laughs. Take it for what it is, and you'll have a pretty good time.
Barbra is amazing!!!
Barbra is back and this movie is really cute! It's mostly for a mom and her son to watch. It reminded me of how me and m mother act on road trips. It's funny and will laugh and cry a very heartfelt movie. It's worth watching! I took my own mom to the mouse to see this and he liked it. I love you Barbra Streisand your my idol and I love everything you do!! Xoxo. Charlie Matanane. Escondido,CA
