Fall movie comebacks of 2012
Name: Barbra Streisand
Biggest Hit: "Meet the Fockers"
Comeback Vehicle: "The Guilt Trip"
Will It Work: The legendary multi-hyphenate has never been very prolific when it comes to big screen work, but has slowed down significantly more over the last decade or so, appearing only in supporting roles in the two "Fockers" sequels in 2004 and 2010. "The Guilt Trip" could win back some longtime fans, and win her some new fans as well. The trailer illustrates a funny and believable rapport between Streisand and co-star Seth Rogen. It's opening over the crowded Christmas weekend, and hopefully won't get lost in the cineplex shuffle.
