All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

A depressingly mediocre little film

Top Critic

Joyride plows through its crime flick checklist of unsavory characters and rote plot divergences with a dreary efficiency.

Audience Reviews for Joyride

Curse you IMDB! Saw this fon iTunes as one of their 99¢ rentals of the week. I checked IMDB and saw: thriller, Steve Zhan, 6.6. For a buck? ... Sure, sign me up! Unfortunately, that was "Joy Ride", this is "Joyride", and it is a complete train wreck. Honestly, there is nothing redeeming about this film. At. All. Tobey is the star and is attrocious. The dialogue is fragmented. Moves at a snail's pace. I place complete blame at the feet of director Peeples, and would say this convinced me to avoid all of his films, but, well, you're looking at his filmography as a director. It wasn't my fault! I was tricked! I want my dollar back! Rrrrrrg!
