Guilt Trip - it's coming in the Fall! (that's Autumn for UK)

STARRING Seth Rogen, Barbra Streisand
DIRECTED BY Anne Fletcher
DEC 25
It took director Anne Fletcher a full year to coax Barbra Streisand — who hasn't headlined a movie since 1996's The Mirror Has Two Faces — out of semiretirement for this bittersweet comedy about an inventor (Seth Rogen) on a cross-country road trip with his mom (Streisand). "I kept saying to her, 'This movie is a dash of What's Up, Doc? with a dash of The Way We Were,'" says Fletcher (The Proposal), who set up a script reading last fall to persuade both stars to sign on. "After they were done with one scene, the room was silent. These two had the craziest amount of chemistry. They were even taken aback." Funny — we're not surprised at all.
