Reviews: The Guilt Trip (2012)

Guilt_TripReviews for this film from our members:

  • Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
    • Excerpt: Streisand and Rogen have decent chemistry together and better than you’d expect given the different circles they run in.
  • Simon Brew @ Den Of Geek
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …this one works because of the great pairing of Streisand and Rogen and the genuine warmth Streisand brings to the vehicle.
  • Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: Road trip movies in recent years have tended to be deservedly R-rated comedies geared towards the young, post-adolescent audience. “The Guilt Trip,” by contrast, is so inoffensive you have the feeling they threw a few profanities in just to get the PG-13.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [A]n experiment in seeing how long a movie can present a series of awkward situations before the entire affair seems awkward in and of itself.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Mildly funny – with the biggest laughs coming during improvisational banter in the ‘outtakes’ during the final credits.
  • Oktay Ege Kozak @ Oregon Herald
  • R. Kurt Osenlund @ Slant Magazine
  • [New – 7/18] | Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]
  • Tom Santilli @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: …a not-so-funny, not-so-memorable comedy that gives us a refreshing, positive mother-son relationship, one we aren’t used to seeing portrayed.
  • Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com
    • Excerpt: All of the complimenting chemistry between Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen — playing mother and son — can’t compensate for an lethargic comedy by screenwriter Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”). Barely a blip of an audience chuckles ever erupt.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guy’s Opinion
    • Excerpt: Has the look and feel of an extended sitcom, and a mediocre one at that.
  • Phil Villarreal @ Becauseitoldyouso.com
    • Excerpt: Yet there is no hope of escape, and that’s why the movie works so well. The mental and emotional torture Rogen endures translates to comic bliss. His sacrifice is filmdom’s gain.
