Rogen Streisand Guilt Trip

Awww, now that's one delightful duo. Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand aren't exactly two names you'd expect to see share top billing on any feature but the pair play mother and son in Anne Fletcher's upcoming road-trip comedy "The Guilt Trip."

Based on a script by Dan Fogelman ("Crazy, Stupid, Love"), the story follows an inventor who embarks on a road trip with his mother as he tries to sell his latest product, while he has a secret plan to reunite her with a long lost love. So, yeah, pretty much that Rogen movie you've been waiting to take your grandmother to which you'll now be able to do under the pretence of catching Streisand's first starring role since "The Mirror Has Two Faces" in 1996.

On top of all that, there's also a talented supporting cast in place as well with Adam Scott, Yvonne Strahovski, Colins Hanks, Danny Pudi, Casey Wilson, Kathy Najimy and Dale Dickey all co-starring. "The Guilt Trip" will help cure that hangover on Christmas Day if you're in no state for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." [The Film Stage
