With Les Miserables and Django Unchained both opening on Christmas Day, a small comedy like The Guilt Trip is likely to get lost in the holiday shuffle.

Advanced reviews are calling it one of the funnier comedies of the year, and it has just enough unique charm to appeal to the masses. Paramount Pictures has released a hi-res photo gallery from the film, mostly featuring its two leads. Check it out, and then maybe you'll also want to go on The Guilt Trip this December 25th as well.

The Guilt Trip was released December 25th, 2012.
