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

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

Road Trip is nothing more than a series of sight gags and put-downs. It's often funny, but it never has anything smart to say.

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

Made the huge mistake of making the supporting, even marginal, characters a heck of a lot more interesting than the leads.

Road Trip is a film that fails on so many levels, committing even the cardinal sin of forgetting to consistently make us laugh.

They really don't step in anything that hasn't been wallowed in before.

Overall, the film has its funny and occasionally uproarious moments, but beyond some other notable gross out material, the film never transcends mediocrity.

What Road Trip's filmmakers forget is that even gross-out humor needs a soul.

You could count the gut-busting scenes on one hand, and the chucklers on the other and still have a finger or two left to do with as you please.

If you don't find gags such as, say, jumping a car over a downed bridge funny, likely you won't enjoy the string of equally unoriginal and far raunchier gags.

I counted one character I thought was even slightly amusing--the goofy narrator, Barry (played by a pre-'Freddy Got Fingered' Tom Green).

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.

Movie in the same vein as American Pie. A college student videotapes a one night stand. The tape has accidentally been mailed to his girlfriend. Him and his friends hit the road to intercept the mail before his girlfirend sees it.
