The Guilt Trip

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Barbra Streisand returns to the big screen here, and the result is not bad. Streisand plays Joyce, the long-widowed mother of inventor Andy (Seth Rogen). Out of guilt, Andy asks Joyce to accompany him on a work trip. The secret mission is to hook up Joyce with a long-lost beau. A tight if formulaic script does well enough, but the performers here do a lot of the lifting. It’s a sweet movie, in its way.

Born Again (and Again)

By Jarret Keene

Upon entering a cool little gallery in Emergency Arts, I anticipate a range of sensations. One thing I do not expect, however, is to feel panic grip my spine when my entrance triggers a motion detector and a whirring, mechanical, three-headed hellhound suddenly springs to life. Fashioned from Frankensteinian, bargain-bin fright masks and a reverse-engineered, wire-strewn, robotic frame, Shannon Eakins’ “Cerberus” combines nature with technology. If you’re not ready, you’ll flinch (or yelp) when the animatronic chimera activates.
