THE SCREENING ROOM: Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen in "The Guilt Trip" Trailer (Video)
03 Oct 2012
The trailer has been released for the new comedy "The Guilt Trip," starring Tony and Academy Award winner Barbra Streisand and "Muppets" star Seth Rogen.
Streisand, who is set to make a concert stage return next week in Philadelphia and Brooklyn, stars as Rogen's mother in the new comedy that will hit theatres December 19.
Here's how it's billed: "Andy Brewster is about to embark on the road trip of a lifetime, and who better to accompany him than his overbearing mother Joyce. After deciding to start his adventure with a quick visit at mom's, Andy is guilted into bringing her along for the ride. Across 3,000 miles of ever-changing landscape, he is constantly aggravated by her antics, but over time he comes to realize that their lives have more in common than he originally thought. His mother's advice might end up being exactly what he needs."
Anne Fletcher directed the film by Dan Fogelman ("Crazy, Stupid, Love," "Tangled") that also features Colin Hanks, Yvonne Strahovski and Adam Scott.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
