GET READY FOR ONE MOTHER OF A ROAD TRIP.
Inventor Andrew Brewster (Seth Rogen) goes on a cross-country tour of sales pitches and brings his overbearing mother (Barbra Streisand) along; there’s obviously an ulterior motive… Streisand’s first leading-lady vehicle in decades thankfully never turns raunchy like so many other contemporary comedies, but preserves its star’s dignity. She does a fine job and Rogen matches her as the long-suffering son. Never less than enjoyable, but nothing much happens in the movie and there are no big laughs, only chuckles.
