Goofs

When Andy and Joyce first ring the doorbell on the house in San Francisco, the shot is of them from outside the house and their voices and the bell sound accordingly. When they ring the bell the second time, the shot is from inside, and their voices thus sound like they are on the other side of the door, correctly. However, the bell still sounds as though the microphone were still outside. See more »

This is not a comedy!
18 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I mean that in the nicest way because honestly the movie was wonderful to watch. There wasn't really anything comedic about this movie in the slightest. Although there are some parts that were quite funny, if you plan to watch this movie, do so with family, not with friends, because this is the kind of movie that is simply telling the story of a mother and her son who have grown distant as time has past and how one thing (trip) manages to bring them closer together. If you're looking for a laugh your butt off type movie watch Bridesmaids or Pitch Perfect. But if you're looking for a heartfelt beautifully told story about family then watch this movie because Barbara Streisand gives her best!
