Check it out, it’s the first still from The Guilt Trip, the upcoming romantic comedy starring Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand. The movie, formerly known as My Mother’s Curse, will be directed by Anne Fletcher (the director of The Proposal), with a script by Dan Fogelman (who penned Crazy, Stupid, Love).
For those unfamiliar with the project, the synopsis is as follows:
Andy Brewster (Rogen) is an inventor who lives in Los Angeles. He’s come up with an amazing organic cleaner but can’t get anyone interested in manufacturing it. Andy plans a business trip to promote the product and decides to take his recently-widowed mother (Streisand) along for the ride. She’s been despondent since his father died, so he comes up with a great idea—during the trip he’ll surprise her with a stop in San Francisco, where one of her ex-flames lives.
Hm, sounds like your typical rom-com flick. Seth Rogen and Streisand are certainly an odd pair, though. I think both are great comedic actors, but I would’ve never imagined them in the same movie together – much less playing mother and son.
As well, Crazy, Stupid, Love was one of the smartest romantic comedies in recent years, so who knows? Perhaps Fogelman will churn out another terrific screenplay this time around.
The Guilt Trip also stars Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Danny Pudi (Community), Colin Hanks (Dexter), and Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck). It’s due in theaters on December 25th.
