The trailer for The Guilt Trip is every Jewish boy's worst nightmare
A few weeks ago we brought you a clip from THE GUILT TRIP featuring Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand taking a mother-son road trip full of wacky misadventures. Well, now we have the full trailer courtesy of Yahoo.
Plot: Andy Brewster (Seth Rogen) is an inventor who lives in Los Angeles. He’s come up with an amazing organic cleaner but can’t get anyone interested in manufacturing it. Andy plans a business trip to promote the product and decides to take his recently-widowed mother (Barbra Streisand) along for the ride. She’s been despondent since his father died, so he comes up with a great idea—during the trip he’ll surprise her with a stop in San Francisco, where one of her ex-flames lives.
This seems like a very Jewish version of DUE DATE. Having grown up in a Jewish family, Barbra Streisand evokes all of the stereotypes of the typical Jewish mother/grandmother. It seems to work here, in a MEET THE PARENTS kind of way. It looks like harmless family fun. I would have no problem taking my mom to see this on Christmas Day when it opens. I mean, what the hell else do us Jews have to do on Christmas?
What do you think? Does THE GUILT TRIP look funny to you?
|Extra Tidbit:||Seth Rogen got chubby again.|
