It’s been a busy day for movie trailers. Early this morning we got The Lone Ranger, this afternoon we were treated to Jason Statham’s Parker, and now you can round it out your trailer fix with a look at the Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand comedy/road movie The Guilt Trip.
In the film, Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen star as mother and son. Rogen’s character is an inventor who takes his mother along with him on a road trip to secretly help reunite her with her long-lost love, but, of course, nothing goes to plan (road films rarely do).
Though everyone has an opinion about Rogen (Green Hornet sucked, there’s mine), The Guilt Trip actually looks fairly promising. I agree with Zap2it on this one – Rogen and Streisand as mother and son is a good sell, even though you’d never expect these two to headline a film together.
Other funny people rounding out the cast include Adam Scott, Colin Hanks, Yvonne Strahovski, Danny Pudi, and Dale Dickey.
Anne Fletcher, director of The Proposal, is behind this comic venture, and, though you might have an opinion on that film (it sucked, there’s mine), the film feels familiar enough to that formula for fans of it and different enough to appeal to a wider audience. I, for one, am excited to see it.
The Guilt Trip opens Christmas Day. Perfect time for a mom date. Check out the trailer below, and tell us what you think!
