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

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

Road Trip is sure to elicit giggles and hoots from crowds of teenagers with its succession of gross-out gags and sexual humor, but this is one teenage tour that never gets up to speed.

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

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

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

Green's scenes play as though they were shot during postproduction and spliced in 12 minutes before the projectionist loaded the canister.

Road Trip is broadly amusing with a few bright spots. But those can't cover up the major gaps in storytelling, characterization and laughs.

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

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

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

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.

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