Nothing like a lot of smotherly love.

They're off on the road to aggravation in this unfunny, annoying, cloying and loud comedy of untied apron strings. What should be "Funny Grandma" becomes "The Way We Weren't", a rushed script that questions why the allegedly picky Babs would choose to let this script go through without changes, seeming more like the Lifetime TV movie "Smothered" (with Diane Keaton) while aspiring but failing to be the touching and triumphant "Only the Lonely", a much better written version of mothers and son's relationships. With a truly dull, uninterested performance by Seth Rogen, this ends up not only truly bad, but unbelievably boring as well.

Streisand must have cringed when she had to refer to Rogen as her "Little Donald Trump". She was an amazing comic actress early in her career, and a few of those films really didn't have great scripts, either. Their plots often were absurd, but none were more unbelievable than this story of mother and son on a business road trip. Rogen's motivation for taking her along? To supposedly reunite her with somebody from her past. Her good intentioned interfering is unfunny, and he reacts unnaturally to all of it. There's no redeeming value in this, making it another missed opportunity for a veteran star intermingling with young actors, where the spark is completely absent.

I guess i was just not the target audience...

I really like Seth Rogen's stuff. Pineaple Express and Superbad are among my favourite comedies of all time and his later efforts like The Night Before and Neighbors really made me laugh and where very enjoyable. Yet i always skipped this movie because i had a feeling it wouldn't be that funny. I stumble on it in one of those bargain bin in a video store, just the DVD with no case for 2$, so at that price... why not.

I watched the movie and well, it was what i expected, maybe even less funny. Its not to say the movie does not have qualities and i can totally understand another audience could actually like this movie, but for a Rogen fan expecting some crude humours and big jokes, this movie does not have much. Its just not really funny. I chuckles maybe 3 times trough the whole movie.

In the end there is nothing much i can say that has not been said already. This movie is not bad by any mean but i didn't enjoyed it, i was a bit bored at time, probably because i simply am not the target audience.

Seth Rogan More Than Tolerable

Being neither a big fan of Seth Rogan, talented actor but participant in so many unspeakably bad movies, nor Barbara Streisand, this movie definitely had to overcome some obstacles for me. Which it did, with Rogan in a refreshingly unpretentious role of a son who is trying to deal patiently with his Mom's idiosyncrasies and finding success as an inventor, and Streisand very believable as a too intrusive mom worried about her son's life. They are effectively both trying to fix the other's life, in a good-natured but also slightly naive way. The movie was sufficiently credible to me, while staying light on its feet without engaging in unnecessary comedy (something that seems to put off a lot of people who had this expectation, probably influenced by Rogan's usual role and the marketing) or drawn-out deception entanglements.

Heightened spoiler alert... I particularly like the scene Andrew puts it squarely to Joyce why he wants her to come to San Francisco. So many movies would think it's a good idea for the character to keep coming up with some pretense that would explode into his face at some point. Instead he pitches it to her, as badly as he pitches his invention, with a reaction of Joyce that comes across as genuine as well. And then there is the next-to-last scene in SF, which might contain one of the most heart-warming moments in cinema history, just when you thought there would be no catharsis for decade-old feelings (which might have increased the authenticity, but I feel the movie had been lifelike enough to justify indulging in a happy end).

Hats off to Anne Fletcher and Dan Fogelman.
