Packing a strong cast and a energetic style, one of the biggest surprises last summer was the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love. Written by Dan Fogelman, the film made nearly $150 million at the box office and now in a little over a year, he’s returning with his next script. Director by The Proposal helmer Anne Fletcher, The Guilt Trip features Seth Rogen as an inventor, who embarks on a business trip with his mom, played by Barbra Streisand.
Paramount Pictures has released the first still today, which sees the duo in their travels. A trailer is expected very soon, so look forward to that with the film also featuring Park & Recreations‘ Adam Scott, Community‘s Danny Pudi, as well as Yvonne Strahovski and Colin Hanks. Check out an extended synopsis below and the still above.
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 (Barbra 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.
The Guilt Trip hits theaters on December 25th, 2012 alongside Django Unchained.
