Consensus: Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand have enough chemistry to drive a solidly assembled comedy; unfortunately, The Guilt Trip has a lemon of a script and is perilously low on comedic fuel.

Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal

Andrew [Rogen], who has invented an organic cleaning compound, pitches it to retailers in a succession of meetings across the country that have no grounding in any known reality.

To its detriment, The Guilt Trip opts to work gently on the heart rather than hard on the funny bone.

A bit 'eww' in that it's essentially a romcom with a mom and son, it's the perfect Mother's Day outing for people who don't like their mums much.

The Guilt Trip pairs Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand in the hope, no doubt, that sparks will fly. They don't.

A breezy, funny and warm road-trip comedy.

The script has let Streisand and Rogen down.

Rogen and Streisand are reasonably funny together, though Rogen, always best when he's angry, is crowded into the role of a well-mannered straight man.

The Guilt Trip is clearly targeted at older audiences less than receptive to the crude jokes that made Seth Rogen famous.

The Guilt Trip struck me something best viewed on an airplane.
