Next week I will attend a screening of The Guilt Trip, starring Seth Rogen & the amazing Barbara Streisand. I have seen the previews & it looks hysterical. I'm eager to see this especially since its about the bond between a mother & son which I can relate to all too well. I feel that the bonds between sons/moms are different than daughters/moms. My ever growing fear is that Andre will leave me one day for another "woman" in his life and I'm not sure how I would handle that. I'm sure after seeing this film it will only make me want to build a stronger yet fun bond with him.
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.
Check out this preview trailer:
Hilarious right? I don't think they could've picked a better comedic duo. They seem to mesh well together.
His mom seems to embarass him more often than not. Who's mom doesn't do that on a normal basis? I know my mom has a few times but I love her for that. Recently we've tried to teach my mom how to text message on her phone. She's always complaining how her phone sucks or she never gets the message. Well come to find out, she didn't know the little envelope icon on her phone were messages she never opened up! Duh!
