Road Trip (2000)



Critic Consensus: Some humor is hit or miss, depending on the audience tastes, but the movie is funny overall. Mixed reviews for the cast, especially for MTV's Tom Green.

Movie Info

Cheating is when you're in a committed relationship and have sex with another person....It's not cheating if you live in different area codes, if you are too wasted to remember it. or if you are with two people at the same time because they cancel each other out. But it is definitely cheating if you videotape it and someone accidentally mails the tape to your girlfriend. This is what happens to Josh, who must now drag two college buddies, and one not-so-eager-kid who happens to own the car, on a … More

Critic Reviews for Road Trip

All Critics (110) | Top Critics (27)

As the guys continue on their way to Texas, this Road Trip degenerates into a slow-moving game of connect-the-gross-outs.

Chicago Tribune
Top Critic

As objectionable as its subject matter is, the most objectionable thing is that it's not funny.

January 1, 2000
Top Critic

Road Trip is mellow and dirty, which is the wrong combination.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

Although lively at times, the proceedings are far too perfunctory to generate a 'can-you-top-this' quality. The result is a film that knows some of the words, but not the music.

Road Trip occasionally wills itself to rude, crude life. But most of the time it's pretty limp.

Top Critic

Just a cut above the typical, but it goes without saying: your mileage may vary. [Blu-ray]

Audience Reviews for Road Trip

"I don't care if you hate the movie. I love it. I watch it every time it's on T.V. even though I own it. It's just one of those films that you can always come back to knowing it's going to make you laugh. I love the cast. D.J. Qualls is one of the funnier ones in the film including of course Seann William's. It will always be one of the funniest movies I have seen. It's my favorite road-trip flick.
You have your weirdo: Barry, your relationship kinda guy: Josh, your man whore: Scott, your stoner: Rubin, and your geeky virgin: Kyle. You can't go wrong with this group on the road in a blind chicks bus.

If you haven't seen the movie your missing out."

"The greatest college tradition of all time."

Four friends take off on an 1800 mile road trip to retrieve an illicit tape mistakenly mailed to a girl friend.

Although this has the exact same plot "Overnight Delivery" had, and roughly the same plot every other road movie had, I'll let it slide because they've found a good use for it. Actors like Breckin Meyer, Paulo Costanzo and DJ Qualls (yet another comedy face trying to get into serious stuff) may not be all that great but they're perfect teen hijink comedy material. You could say Seann William Scott sleepwalks through another Stifler performance, but he cleverly tones it down a bit so you care this time. Once it gets on the road, the fun you'd expect from the plot really does begin. Comedy set pieces start piling up, each more unpredictable than the last, except for the obligatory car troubles and the pretty obvious conclusion. The major plot is the achilles heel of this movie, which isn't as bad as it sounds. Most of all, it's just really funny. It all just works, whether it's stupid and obvious or slightly less stupid and obvious, it makes me laugh. Also contains a topless Amy Smart, which I didn't boo either.

If your into raunchy humour you'll love Todd (the hangover) Phillips' teen road comedy. A miscast Breckin Meyer leads the group with funny Seann William Scott and Tom Green supporting. It wasn't hilarious but it's dumb funny forgettable fluff. However, there was also a stupid subplot involving Tom Green feeding a snake which I thought was a boring stretched joke. It's all over the place's okay.
