Synopsis


The Guilt Trip
In Anne Fletcher's family comedy, Barbra Streisand plays Joyce Brewster, a sixtysomething widow who has given up on men and seems to spend most of her free time phoning her son Andrew (Seth Rogen), a chemist who has created an all-natural cleaning solution that he's bet his career on and is trying to sell to retailers (a wager that he's losing thus far). As the movie opens, Andrew returns home to spend some time with his mom before going on a cross-country road trip to pitch his product in various cities, ending with a trip to Las Vegas where he'll shoot a Home Shopping Network demo. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Boring, predictable, unrealistic.

    This movie was a disappointment to me. After hearing how they went out of their way to get Streisand in the movie, she simply isn't that good. The plot is very predictable and boring, as well as unrealistic. I will never watch this again, it was that bad, and it wasn't even good enough to give to my kids to watch ... it's a waste of their time compared to so many other good movies out there! If you are looking for this "type" of movie, PARENTAL GUIDANCE is much better.

    I really enjoyed the movie. I like Barbara Streisand when she plays an off the wall character like in this and in Meet the Fockers series. It was just a touching movie about the relationship between a Mom who loves her son so much and her son who is struggling in his life.

    Overall the movie was very good. I thought it was funny. I felt that it was totally unnecessary to put that one foul word in. It kind of ruined the movie a little for me. The movie would have been super if they left that word out.

    Worthwhile movie to watch if you like comedies. The acting is excellent with a funny plot. I am glad we watched it on DVD but, I do not think it would have been worth the price of admission to a theater.

    I thought I would like the movie, but I most certainly did not. I get the feeling the movie was specifically made for Streisand -- as it was all about her. There really was no part of it I liked.

    Not as funny as what I thought these 2 would be.

    The point of the story was a good one, however the movie dragged along a little. Could have been funnier parts left in instead of edited out and left for Deleted scenes.

    A must see film for Barbra Streisand fans! If your looking for a comedy about the relationship between a mother & son, this is it. They reminded me of my family :)

    I thought the previews made this movie look good but the story really never went anywhere. Can you say boring?? I actually fell asleep trying to watch this one.
