Well, it's a masterpiece compared with 'Little Fockers,' the last movie featuring Barbra Streisand.

Pairing Rogen and Streisand turns out to be inspired.
The Guilt Trip is not about Rogen, bubbeleh. Streisand is her own once-in-a-lifetime trip, looking gawjuss with that divine voice and those killer fingernails, and the sight of the lady scarfing down four pounds of beef at a Texas steak joint is one a Streisand lover can now cross off her bucket list.
Guilt Trip is cinematic comfort food for road trip fans who aren't given indigestion by Streisand.
A timid, modestly pleasant time-passer distinguished mostly by its unexplored potential.
The chief pleasures of this mild-mannered dud lie in watching two resourceful comic actors go through their paces like the pros they are.
A creakily old-fashioned comedy that forgot to pack the laughs along with the nudging and kvetching.
There is something promising about the match-up of an old-school show-biz kid like Streisand with the modern, anxiously self-aware Rogen, but what could have been the multigenerational Thunderdome of Jewish Humor instead turns out bloodlessly disappointing.
The pretext of the movie, which was directed in broadbrush-cartoon style by Anne Fletcher from a coarse-textured script by Dan Fogelman, is a road trip taken by mother, Joyce, and son, Andrew.
Audiences deserve a resounding "mea culpa" for the embarrassing dreck, masquerading as comedy, in The Guilt Trip.
