THE GUILT TRIP Movie Review




It takes a special kind of creative insanity (and I mean this in the nicest possible way), to take the traditional American road-trip and turn it into a road-trip from ‘hilarious-hell.’ Just imagine being an only child and being stuck alone with your overbearing mother on an eight-day cross-country odyssey. Director Anne Fletcher and Writer/Co-Writer Dan Fogelman certainly had their work cut out for them with this one. This movie is simply one big comedic torment for anyone who fears being stuck anywhere with their parents, for an extended period of time. 

Needless to say, there is nothing particularly ground-breaking about the premise, as numerous flicks have previously shown friends and/or family members bonding over the crazy misadventures that they encounter on a road-trip. However, the movie does show that Seth Rogen and Streisand share an unlikely strong on-screen chemistry as they trade one-liners, and express touching moments of family gratitude and appreciation. And as the title might suggest, the plot seems to be like a rolling collection of pit-stops with cheap motels, the always obvious Grand Canyon detour, the almost always Vegas casino regret and many insanity-ridden interspersed scenes with mother-and-son stuck together driving each other over the edge.
