THE GUILT TRIP

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

It could have been so good. Seth Ro­gen play­ing lovelorn, sin­gle, nerdy son and Bar­bra Streisand as his over­bear­ing, track­suit-wear­ing, wid­owed mother stuck in a car to­gether for sev­eral days trav­el­ling across the United States. But it isn’t. While the premise is promis­ing, the de­liv­ery is atro­cious. The jokes aren’t funny and the plot de­scends into a se­ries of pre­dictable mo­ments as mother em­bar­rasses son un­til he re­alises – you guessed it - mum’s ad­vice isn’t al­ways wrong. This is one movie that both stars prob­a­bly wish they hadn’t made. ★✩ Ex­tras: Deleted scenes, gag reel, al­ter­na­tive open­ing and end­ing. On set with the stars. ★★
