The Guilt Trip, Movie Review
I took my father-in-law, who currently resides with us (that’s a whole other story), to watch The Guilt Trip tonight. The main actors of The Guilt Trip are Seth Rogen from Knocked Up and Barbra Streisand. I remember watching Barbra Streisand movies as a kid, where she use to dance and sing. Earlier today at work while waiting for customers to exit their theatre to clean it, I overhead a group of older ladies say the movie was cute and funny.
After watching The Guilt Trip for ourselves, we agree. The movie is about a son who goes on a road trip with his mother, as he tries to pitch his cleaning product to major companies. The movie depicts the relationship many people have with their mother. Sometimes they drive us crazy but they mean well. As a son or daughter you’ll find yourself relating with Andy, played by Seth. Even in some scenes you’ll hate to admit, like snapping at your mother. Not one of my proudest moments. This is why Dad, my father-in-law, described the movie as funny and sad.
The Guilt Trip also reminds you that the job and role of being a mother never ends, even when you, the child, become an adult. You’ll always be their baby. At the end of the movie, you’ll want to go home and call your mommy!
