The Guilt Trip 2012

The Guilt Trip     Andrew is a chemist and he has bet his career on selling an all-natural cleaning product.  He has meetings lined up with retailers to pitch his product on a cross-country road trip.  Before starting his journey, he returns to his family home to spend time with his mom.  She tells him she used to date someone before his father and mentions the man’s name.  Andy does a computer search and discovers this former date has a big company, maybe this will be the sales opportunity he needs.  He asks his mom to go on this trip with him as an intro to meeting this possible business contact.
     I don’t know if there are enough bad things I can say about this movie.  I have no idea why Barbara Streisand would even take this role?  Maybe on paper and during the filming this seemed like a good idea but on the screen it’s a bore.  2* (I didn’t like this movie)

95 min, Comedy directed by Anne Fletcher with Seth Rogan, Barbara Streisand, Kathy Najimy, Colin Hanks, Brett Cullen, Adam Scott.

Note:  Blockbuster 3*, imdb 5.7 out of 10, 38% critic 43% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
