The trailer for “The Guilt Trip” has finally arrived. Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen star in this movie about an inventor who takes his mother along with him on a road trip to secretly help reunite her with her long-lost love. Don’t let that sweet description fool you, because it seems like their story quickly goes off the rails from there.
Yahoo! Movies has the trailer, and there are certainly plenty of laughs to be had. We totally buy Streisand and Rogen as mother and son, which is something we never thought we’d say. The film has plenty of other familiar faces as well, including Adam Scott, Colin Hanks, Yvonne Strahovski, Danny Pudi and Dale Dickey.
Anne Fletcher directed “The Guilt Trip,” and we see plenty of elements of “The Proposal” in this film. It clearly will go off the handle at least once (hopefully that Streisand steak scene is as fantastic as “The Proposal” sequence with Betty White in the woods), but it also seems to have plenty of heart. What’s not to like about that?
So what do you think, Zap2it readers? Is this a movie you’re interested in seeing?
