The Guilt Trip Reviews

February 9, 2019
A pat, old-fashioned comedy that fails to capitalise on the substantial potential for humour of its leading duo.
August 21, 2018
Rogen and Streisand share adequate chemistry but seldom seem like the real deal in Anne Fletcher's fourth movie... Under her direction, Streisand and Rogen look like a pair of actors saying jokes written for them by a comedy think tank.

The whole thing gets duller by the minute.
June 29, 2018
A mild and forgettable road comedy.

A bit 'eww' in that it's essentially a romcom with a mom and son, it's the perfect Mother's Day outing for people who don't like their mums much.
May 23, 2016
The script has let Streisand and Rogen down.

The Guilt Trip struck me something best viewed on an airplane.

It just cruises along in second gear, being genial.
June 27, 2014
The laughs are gentle, of the chuckle rather than laugh-out-loud variety and they're plentiful enough to overlook the episodic sequences.

Rogen's deadpan misery meshes well with Streisand's oblivious idiocy, making the laughs roll in.

On paper, it must have seemed like a solid idea

Contrived and mostly medicore, but may satisfy Streisand fans
March 10, 2013
It's all kvetch this and kvetch that, with few jokes or amusing encounters ...

It never quite delivers juggernaut-sized laughs, but the sharp-tongued sparring between the two leads pops and fizzes throughout, with Streisand in particular showing she's still an intuitive and naturalistic comedian.
March 8, 2013
Streisand has lost little of her gawky, pesky touch in comedy, while Rogen knows just how to be the charmingly daft slob.
March 8, 2013
Rogen plays the science nerd Andrew, who has just invented an organic cleaning product and is taking a cross-country trip to find a buyer. In a moment of weakness, he invites his meddling mother Joyce (Streisand).
March 7, 2013
Barbra's speed-yapping makes her mollycoddling mum Joyce even more annoying than she is supposed to be.
March 7, 2013
What we're left with is a bafflingly dull road movie. Maybe Alexander Payne could have done something with this.
March 7, 2013
It is the makers who should feel guilty.
