Road trips can forge bonds and build everlasting memories. But when that road trip is taken with your mom, things may get a little awkward towards the final destination. That’s the basic premise for the new Anna Fletcher (The Proposal) comedy, The Guilt Trip. The film stars Seth Rogen as an inventor who must trek across the country promoting a brand new product, while his mother (Barbra Streisand) comes along for the ride.
Check out the first trailer here below.
Rogen seems to be turning in the raunchy humor he is so well known for, for an honest, genunine, toned-down comedy about a boy and his mother. I love how Rogen’s character is just so frustrated with some of the things Streisand’s character does. The two look like they have such wonderful chemistry, it’s no surprise that we are seeing this film hit theaters on Christmas Day.
The film also stars Adam Scott, Danny Pudi, Colin Hanks, and Yvonne Strahovski.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Andy Brewster is about to embark on the road trip of a lifetime, and who better to accompany him than his overbearing mother Joyce. After deciding to start his adventure with a quick visit at mom’s, Andy is guilted into bringing her along for the ride. Across 3,000 miles of ever-changing landscape, he is constantly aggravated by her antics, but over time he comes to realize that their lives have more in common than he originally thought. His mother?s advice might end up being exactly what he needs.
