Goodviews: Guilt Trip

guilt trip   Ever have someone in your life you love, but who loves you so much it’s suffocating? Welcome to Guilt Trip. Andrew “Andy” Brewster (Seth Rogen) is a down-on-his-luck inventor trying to sell his all-natural, non-toxic home cleaning product. Andrew’s mom, Joyce (Barbra Streisand), loves her son to no end and while her son loves her, he wants his space. While he’s talking to his mother about the trip he’s going to take driving here and there to different stores and events to try and promote his product. As sometimes happens, Andy is plagued by guilt because his mother lives alone and he lives quite a distance from her and he breaks down and asks his mother to come with him on the trip. Right from the start his mother is getting him to change things. Such as taking a smaller, more gas efficient car instead of a large doesn’t-matter-what-weather-the-vehicle-has-no-issues gas guzzler. As time passes arguments arise and Andy learns a lot of things about his mother that he didn’t know before. This is a feel-good movie, without a doubt. It’s family, it’s funny, it is rated PG-13 because of some language and innuendos, but it’s one of the movies that’ll make you go “awww”. Make sure you watch this movie all the way through, because Andy does something towards the end that really makes you question a few things about cleaning products. Heather: I adore Seth Rogen’s acting. To me, he’s hilarious and he tends to play a character that everyone can relate to in some way. Be it a down-on-his-luck character or a character who’s a little bit of everything with crazy ideas and no brain-filter. This was my first experience with Streisand’s acting and I deeply enjoyed it. Streisand and Rogen make an awesome comedy duo.
