Guilt Trip (December 19)
It’s "Dumb & Dumber" meets "Due Date" — only, one of the dudes is Barbara Streisand. But the premise looks promising for holiday movie watching. If you’re planning on spending some time back home, why not watch an awkward family drama with your awkward family?
Seth Rogen stars as an entrepreneur about to hit the road who sympathetically asks his rut-stricken mother to join him as he attempts to hook her up with an old flame. Along the way, there are plenty of road trip antics and clever mother-son situations dealing with puberty and hitchhikers that’ll give you a half-wincing giggle.
Expect Streisand to carry the weight, Rogen to speak awkwardly in monotone and the occasional cheek pinch, but we won’t spoil it and say which cheek.
