This looks like my sort of film – in fact I am still writing my gap year mother/children film at the moment – this one has just beaten me to it – however, it is a few years down the line even if Barbra Streisand looks younger every year…
It’s out on March 1st in the UK. I hope I get invited to the preview.
Andy Brewster (Seth Rogen) is about to embark on the road trip of a lifetime, and who better to accompany him than his overbearing mother Joyce (Barbra Streisand). After deciding to start his adventure with a quick visit to mum’s, Andy is guilted into bringing her along for the ride. Across 3,000 miles of ever-changing landscape, he is constantly aggravated by her antics, but over time he comes to realise that their lives have more in common than he originally thought. His mother’s advice might end up being exactly what he needs.
