Family Movie Review: The Guilt Trip (PG-13)

TheGuiltTrip ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13          Length: 95 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 12+. Some cursing sprinkled throughout, as well as implied sexual jokes and suggested drug use.

‘The Guilt Trip’ very much wants to be a movie that will inspire you to go home and call your mother, or maybe give her an extra hug the next time you see her. Every now and then, it delivers on that expectedly heartwarming premise—but ‘The Guilt Trip’ is mostly weirdly flat, with very little humorous zing.

By Roxana Hadadi

“The Guilt Trip” is a movie for a very specific demographic. It’s for sons and daughters to take their mom to the movies, much like “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” was earlier this year, and then your family walks out happy and satisfied for the immediate future, content in your comfort with each other. There is, of course, nothing wrong with going to the movies with your relatives for a brief excursion into fantasy. But “The Guilt Trip” only serves that parent-pleasing purpose—it has very little identity beyond that.
