These days, people want vulgarity in their comedies. This is apparent with how well Appatow films do in the box office. Now, I'm not saying that I don't like raunchy comedies. In fact, 'Superbad' is one of my favourite movies.
I just don't understand why films like 'The Guilt Trip' get such negative responses from the audience and critics alike. Sure, this wasn't a cinematic masterpiece but neither was 'This Is 40' and that is getting a better response than 'The Guilt Trip' is.
Although I wasn't laughing out loud all the way through, the film made me think of my own relationship with my mother. I had a great time with 'The Guilt Trip' and would recommend it to anyone that is fed up with today's standards of comedy.
Funny, real, and honest. 7/10 - Thanks for reading.
