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.

>‘Here With Me,’ The Killers

By Jarret Keene

They started out a synth-rock band, morphed into a Springsteen tribute act and are now doubling down on a bet that what people really want to hear is subpar Journey power ballads. Moreover, the Killers gambled on bringing out a video for the third single, “Here With Me,” from this year’s tragically bad Battle Born. In a case arguing for the irrelevancy of filmmaker Tim Burton, this would serve as Exhibit A—a gloomy, lifeless mess starring actress Winona Ryder as a mannequin toted around an English seaside resort by actor Craig Roberts.
