Seth Rogen And Barbara Streisand Hit The Road Together In The Trailer For THE GUILT TRIP!!
The Kidd here...
So when did today suddenly become trailer day as every few hours it's been one after another after another being sent my way.
The latest is for the Seth Rogen-Barbara Streisand buddy road movie THE GUILT TRIP, which puts a guy in a car with his mother for eight days and then watches them accept the challenge of not killing each other. That's really how this should all go down, and I'm calling dibs on turning this into some sort of reality show, but the film goes for a much lighter tone in that the trip is sure to bring them closer together and provide a few laughs and some feel-good resolution.
I got a chuckle out of the Grand Canyon bit, but that's about it, as it feels like there should be much more to a comedy with Rogen and Streisand involved.
Take a look...

Won't be surprised if this does well but holy shit that would be hard to watch.

And the actors involved cinch it.

She's only one of the most talented interpretive singers alive, and a fine comic actress. Oh, but this is anti-semitism, isn't it? So none of that matters.

Barbara Streisand is pulling off the brooklyn jew accent about as well as she played crazy in Nuts.....

That's what killed John Candy, you know.

Wow, your pretty quick to pull the Jew card.

Compared to what I expect for Holiday fare (looking at you, Elf), this looks fine and I could see watching it with the fam. Not something I'd pick out, but something I could sit through. Mother-son tension is a pretty old story. Remember reading The Odyssey? And it could be much worse: just imagine if Adam Sandler had landed it. You'd have to listen to him sing with Barbara. Ughhh. Streisand actually impressed me in Meet the Fokkers. I like Seth Rogen and actually find them believable as a mother and son. A part of me hopes it is a bit more mean spirited than the trailer lets on.

you jews are so touchy, the lack of interest in this movie stems from the fact that it looks like shit and that no one wants to stair at the giant banana nose for 2 hours straight

It isn't horrible, it's just not good...

I maintain all the Streisand-hate has to do with her being Jewish and not traditionally pretty (although she was pretty sexy when she was younger)
I mean, the guy talking about the "big banana nose" is just baiting me, but I do notice that whenever Streisand is mentioned, a lot of hate and anger and cruelty follows - whether these schmucks know they're being anti-semites or not is besides the point. You don't like her because A) she's old and B) she looks jewish. I may have jumped the gum in calling "anti-semitism" - but I knew it would pop up soon enough.
Oct. 3, 2012, 5:26 p.m. CST
Cause it certainly can't have anything to do with what she's (by far) most famous for: her astounding voice.
I'm not gay. I am Jewish.

You could recast this movie with Hispanic Catholics and would still be obnoxiously cliched & awful-looking.

but it seems to me one can both dislike Streisand and not be anti-Semitic. I personally love Babs and dispise racists and most of my buddies think she sucks... but they don't hate her or the rest of the Jews. So, case closed there. Conversely, one who does hate Jews must hate Barbara Streisand as well. If not, they really can't be very good at anti-Semitism, can they?
Oct. 3, 2012, 6:23 p.m. CST
Babs is obnoxious and annoying. And it has nothing to do with her being Jewish because Seth Rogan is Jewish too and I don't find him annoying at all. But Babs opens her yap too much about pointless Barbara Streisand (B.S.) so the less of her we see the better. - End of Line --

from the fact she's a loud mouthed arrogant shrew. Hindu. Buddhist. Or Jewish. A bitch is a bitch. Talented? Absolutely. But so is Michael Vick, he still electrocuted dogs. I like Rogen a lot but this doesn't seem to have an ounce of originality to it. Just some funny set-up scenes with embarrassing mom stuff we've seen a thousand times.
Oct. 3, 2012, 6:56 p.m. CST
Can't pull the jew card on them becasue it was probably Stone's idea.
Oct. 3, 2012, 9:38 p.m. CST
This wasn't funny at all. I love to laugh. I wanted to laugh but it wasn't funny. this movie won't be good unless it's free and I'm hungover with nothing else to do.
The idea, granted is funny, but nothing I saw there is even remotely funny. It's cliche after cliche after cliche. Who watches this shit?! Why would you when you've already seen it with different faces?! Who watches this?!

What an odd pairing. I wonder if Rogen will introduce Striesland to pot just as the fucker turned Kevin Smith right on it...and now look at his career. Bastard! I don't care if he gets the likes of Striesland on it. Maybe a gateway for something worse. Go

He pulled the race card before anyone said something offensive. This movie is a simple premise comedy. Matter of factly, there hasnt been any momma's boy movies out in recent years. It looks funny. They didnt show off every joke in the commercial like that Movie 42 did (which looks like a Warner Bros, 30 actors in a genre stamped and stomped movie)

Krinkle, there probably are not enough Senior Citizens on this forum to defend BAAAABRA. The rest of us would rather tie our genitals into knots than see a BAAABRA movie. Yes, mine is long enough to tie into a knot.

And the answer is...no. It's not. It's also bad for people who enjoy funny jokes in their comedies.

And all of you are going to puke all over yourselves in self-righteous disgust. Every jewish yenta mother is going to drag their families to see this thing. You can take that to the bank. I will admit, even I laughed at a few things, and given that this is a holiday release, while nerds are beating off at the temple of Jackson, other people will be seeing this.

This isn't trying to be zany. It's heartfelt. I think it looks good, and it could very well be my Christmas Day movie. BTW, Streisand is and always will be gorgeous, funny and talented!

So many of my friends on the right simply refuse to watch any movies with: Sean Penn, Tim Robbins & Susan Sarandon, Jane Fonda, etc, etc... Some of my friends on the left go apeshit with fury over Arnold Schwartzeneggar, Ronald Reagan, Clint Eastwood, Ron Silver (rip), Dennis Miller, etc, etc... Amazing how we cut people loose simply for not agreeing with our bullshit views. For the most part, I've never heard anyone rag on Streisand for her work, appearance, religion, or artistry *first* - it always seems to boil down to the politics at some point. Sorry to bring up politics here..was not my initial intent...but I doubt in the EXTREME that any real Streisand hate has anything to do with her religion or her talent (always liked her as a singer first and foremost). Not anti-semite but anti-liberal. That's the twist here methinks.
