    The Guilt Trip surprises by avoiding the obvious. It zigs when you expect it to zag. It's perceptive and thoughtful as it swerves around potholes that easily could have broken an axle.

  • Connie Ogle

    The humor is mostly gentle in nature; The Guilt Trip is clearly targeted at older audiences less than receptive to the crude jokes that made Rogen famous in movies like "Knocked Up" and "Zack and Miri Make a Porno."

  • Mick LaSalle

    There are laughs throughout, but Guilt Trip isn't joke-happy. The humor is light and well observed, as when Mom keeps playing the audiobook of "Middlesex," and the son gets uncomfortable hearing about anything sexual in front of his mother.

  • Michael Phillips

    Well, it's a masterpiece compared with 'Little Fockers,' the last movie featuring Barbra Streisand.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Chris Packham

    Pairing Rogen and Streisand turns out to be inspired.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Though intermittently bathed in a halo of golden light and desired by at least one handsome, distinguished older man with a thing for mature women with healthy appetites, Streisand in The Guilt Trip is largely devoid of her famous vanity and narcissism.

  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The Guilt Trip is not about Rogen, bubbeleh. Streisand is her own once-in-a-lifetime trip, looking gawjuss with that divine voice and those killer fingernails, and the sight of the lady scarfing down four pounds of beef at a Texas steak joint is one a Streisand lover can now cross off her bucket list.

  • Ty Burr

    The movie's silly, predictable, and surprisingly sweet - the sort of thing you can and probably should take your mother to.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Guilt Trip is cinematic comfort food for road trip fans who aren't given indigestion by Streisand.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    The film's feel-good message is undermined by its ultimate purpose: As a vindication of the rights of Jewish mothers to annoy their children as much as they please.

  • Mary Pols

    The Guilt Trip works because we all know and like a Joyce Brewster (or dozens of them).

  • James Adams

    The premise (and the promise) here, of course, is that, as the miles pass, the two will be as chalk is to cheese, oil to vinegar, an apple to an orange. And indeed this is what happens. Unfortunately, it's about the only thing that happens.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Louis Black

    Watching this movie is not a complete waste of time, but it is little more than a sitcom-lite diversion.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Mothers and sons deserve an amiable comedy they can share, but this one proves to be faulty long before the requisite freeway breakdown.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    It's a one-joke movie, if "Jewish mothers are annoying" is a joke. But just as a film about boredom should not actually be boring, no movie should credibly simulate the experience of being stuck in a car with Barbra Streisand for eight days.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    It is to her everlasting credit that a famously exasperating perfectionist like Barbra Streisand could survive a limp noodle like The Guilt Trip.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    The chief pleasures of this mild-mannered dud lie in watching two resourceful comic actors go through their paces like the pros they are.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    A timid, modestly pleasant time-passer distinguished mostly by its unexplored potential.

    Variety Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A creakily old-fashioned comedy that forgot to pack the laughs along with the nudging and kvetching.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Overall, there is a fundamental lack of excitement or energy; it's a 95-minute movie that feels twice as long as "The Hobbit."

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The jokes mostly fall flat and the dramatic scenes fall even flatter.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Simon Braund

    Crazy, Stupid, Love writer Dan Fogelman can't rebottle lightning with a humdrum comedy that doesn't play to its stars strengths.

    Empire Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Bickering turns to bonding over the course of a predictable affair that only comes to life during a Texan steak-eating contest that has Babs ingest a mountain of meat.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The pretext of the movie, which was directed in broadbrush-cartoon style by Anne Fletcher from a coarse-textured script by Dan Fogelman, is a road trip taken by mother, Joyce, and son, Andrew.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    There is something promising about the match-up of an old-school show-biz kid like Streisand with the modern, anxiously self-aware Rogen, but what could have been the multigenerational Thunderdome of Jewish Humor instead turns out bloodlessly disappointing.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    While the actors are appealing, their weirdly co-dependent characters aren't. And they don't learn enough to balance out the bland, intermittently irritating nature of their adventures.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Fear

    What's surprising is that Rogen and Streisand have a genuinely complementary chemistry, feeding off each other in a way that suggests that, given a halfway decent script, the two would make a better-than-decent screen duo.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Anne Fletcher's lifeless comedy about an overbearing mother and her exasperated adult son, has no flawlessly delivered punch lines. It doesn't even have a hangnail.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Audiences deserve a resounding "mea culpa" for the embarrassing dreck, masquerading as comedy, in The Guilt Trip.
