The Guilt Trip (2012)

[boring and predictable]

The Guilt Trip (2012)
IMDB- 5.6
RottenTomatoes- 38%
RJG Ratings- 15

A mother and son take a cross country trip.

Starring- Barbra Streisand,Seth Rogen
Director- Anne Fletcher

Seth Rogen and Barbra bring nothing new onscreen.Both play a standard cliche role of a lonely mother and a busy son.Seth seems too tired throughout the movie and doesnt have any spark in him.Barbra on the other hand is a bit more better but due to the high predictability nature of the movie ,audience might not have the patience to listen to her character's whining.

The storys only selling factor is the combo of Seth-Barbra as son and mother taking a trip.Thats it.Theres nothing else interesting.Within 15-20min ,you can predict the entire movie.Comedy is poor.

Direction is dull.Anne Fletcher doesnt try to make anything new ,and follows a standard ,tried to death , formula.

Overall Guilt Trip ,is guilty of being too predictable with boring performances.

Acting- 1.5/5
Story- 1/5
Direction- 1.5/5
Comedy- 1.5/5
Drama- 1/5
