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

It just cruises along in second gear, being genial.

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

It's all kvetch this and kvetch that, with few jokes or amusing encounters ...
Terry Staunton

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.

Streisand has lost little of her gawky, pesky touch in comedy, while Rogen knows just how to be the charmingly daft slob.

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).

Barbra's speed-yapping makes her mollycoddling mum Joyce even more annoying than she is supposed to be.

What we're left with is a bafflingly dull road movie. Maybe Alexander Payne could have done something with this.

It is the makers who should feel guilty.

Enjoyable mother-son road movie that swerves the potential potholes of broad or outrageous comedy in favour of an engaging, emotionally convincing and ultimately moving portrait of the central relationship ...

It's been more than fifteen years since Barbra Streisand has taken a lead role in a movie...and after suffering this you can see why.

There are OK performances but the cast are better than this. Very occasionally it's vaguely amusing, but it's mostly just annoying or cringeworthy.

Think of it as a Sunday drive, easy and breezy, with good company to pass the time.

Despite the odds, both stars strike a few sparks in Anne Fletcher's slight comedy.

You've seen this film already. That's how predictable it is...the film is surprisingly light on laughs.
