Seth Rogen is no stranger to the buddy-comedy genre, but this Christmas he's trading in his bros for . . . Barbra Streisand? In The Guilt Trip, Rogen plays a guy who comes home to visit his mom and decides to invite her along on his cross-country car ride. Along the way, they encounter hitchhikers, the Grand Canyon, and strip clubs (obviously).
There's not much that feels new or fresh in this trailer, except for the fact that we rarely see Rogen playing the polite, buttoned-up guy. Streisand is believable as the mother that mortifies him, but the odd-couple road-trip-from-hell premise has been done before. The film opens Dec. 25, and you can watch the trailer when you read more.
