What’s it about?
A talented chemical engineer is about to embark on a business trip across America to sell his new product. After a brief stop in to visit his heartbroken mum ,he invites her along hoping to reunite her with her new boyfriend.
What we think?
Elodie says: It reads more like a horror movie – a road trip with your mother! While the nagging might be a deterrent for some, Seth Rogan and Barbra Streisand work well together. Streisand’s overprotectiveness and the duo’s light banter fuels their journey across America in a way that’s entertaining enough albeit cliched. Light enough fare but I was reminded of my own sentimental moments as I left the theatre. Sometimes you have to smile and take their pestering as love – in fact, bring your mum along with you to see it.
