The first trailer for the road trip comedy The Guilt Trip has been released.  The film stars Seth Rogen as an inventor who sets out on a business trip with his mother (Barbra Streisand) in tow.  The trailer actually doesn’t look half-bad, with Rogen and Streisand showing off some promising chemistry.  There are a few solid jokes, and I appreciate the sweet emotional backbone that grounds the story in lieu of just having Rogen and Streisand go on a road trip with “zany adventures.”  Rogen’s familial situation isn’t uncommon (I can definitely relate), and it looks to be a nice foundation for the film’s story.  In the event that your family isn’t keen on seeing Django Unchained  this Christmas, The Guilt Trip doesn’t sound like a terrible compromise.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal),  the film also stars Yvonne Strahovski, Adam Scott, and Danny PudiThe Guilt Trip opens on December 25th.

Here’s a synopsis for The Guilt Trip:

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.
