(kr) wrote: Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand have been in a number of comedies over the years, but 'The Guilt Trip' marks the first time the two shared the screen together. Directed by Anne Fletcher, the movie is a C-rate laugher that follows Rogen's traveling salesman/entrepreneur as he tries to pitch an organic cleaner to big box stores as he asks his overbearing Jersey mother (Streisand) to tag along in an attempt to reunite her with a long lost love on the west coast. The plot sounds like it should be one that would offer up a good amount of humor, and there are a few funny scenes, but overall 'Trip' is just not that funny. There are some weird ups and downs that really do a number on the flow of the film, with some bits of drama just feeling really "off" and out of place considering the set up. Additionally, Rogen is not his usual self, he just seems to be out of his element for some reason. Streisand does well, though, and her portrayal of the crazy mom is in line with what you'd expect. Everyone knows someone in their life who shares characteristics with Mrs. Joyce Brewster. Still, somehow 'Trip' ends on a nice note, which is all you can really ask for. While 'The Guilt Trip' is far from a great film, it's not the worst road trip that's ever been chronicled on screen.
(mx) wrote: A wonderful gem of a film. "Ushpizin" is a great indie about an Israeli couple that only recently has become religious that are struggling to have a child while also struggling financially all before Succot, one of the most joyous Jewish holidays on the Jewish calendar. The film immediately gets points for beautifully showing the real modern day Israel. On one hand it looks downtrodden, but the beauty of the spiritual wealth coming from the communities is what brings a sense of awe. The film's writing is great, building up all the elements of the recently converted main character to an absolutely intense moment towards the end where his faith is put at its most powerful test. Like others have said, this movie depicts a realistic trial of a faithful couple who are like the Israelites in the desert, relying upon God at every move because nothing else is going to get them through it. The themes of the presence of God, miracles, dealing with shocking circumstances in the everyday holy life, and others are all very present. The direction is very good. The overhead shots of Jerusalem were nice. The director was great at keeping the film feel calm during every scene no matter what was occuring but going all out in the scenes that needed the drama, which allowed those dramatic scenes to truly stand out and reveal the difficulty of the trial the couple is going through.

(gb) wrote: Motel Hell has some clever writing, fun moments, and memorable scenes. The characters could be a little more developed, but they work for what they are. It's not a solid picture, but it's just cooky enough to be a good enough time.
