Paramount has sent us a new trailer for the Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen ‘buddy comedy’ The Guilt Trip. It may not seem like an obvious pairing, but it comes to us from director Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) and writer Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love). Previously titled My Mother’s Curse, it also stars Adam Scott, Yvonne Strahovski and Danny Pudi. It is released in the US on 25 December 2012, and in Australia from 24 January 2013 from Paramount.
Andy Brewster (Seth 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 (Barbara 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.
