Road Trip
Movie Stats & Links

Starring: Breckin Meyer, Seann Willam Scott, Amy Smart, Tom Green
MPAA Rated: R
Released By: DreamWorks Pictures
Kiddie Movie: I was surprised to see so many teenie boppers in the theater given that there is some nice T & A in the movie. I wouldn’t want my pre-teen to see this movie (if I had one).
Date Movie: The movie surrounds the subject of cheating on a relationship while away at college. So… You make the call, Romeo. Actually, the movie is pretty light hearted and the guys in the movie are total asses so she might like it.
Gratuitous Sex: Yes! Nothing graphic and a few titty scenes.
Gratuitous Violence: Nah.
Action: We’ve got Dukes of Hazzard style car jumps, cars exploding, little college wrestling geeks punching it out, and Tom Greene making out with mothers.
Laughs: I laughed throughout the entire movie.
Memorable Scene: Envision, if you will, what "Prostrate Milking" is…
Memorable Quote: Too many to list.

Road Trip
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - R

It's 1:31 Long

A Review by
Stu Gotz
Seeing the previews for "Road Trip" I thought this was gonna be one suck-ass movie. Why? Well… From the previews it looked like a cliché riddled, coming of age movie hindered by the obnoxious star appeal of MTV’s Tom Greene. I was kind of right. "Road Trip" is full of clichés, but they work. Tom Greene is obnoxious, but the writers, directors, and editors limit his screen time and antics so as not to bore. "Road Trip" is by no means a "suck ass" movie. I dare say it’s the funniest movie I’ve seen this year. Granted it’s not an intelligent comedy, but rather simple, silly humor.

If you’ve seen the previews, you pretty much know the story. Josh (Breckin Meyer) and his girlfriend Tiffany (Rachel Blanchard) go away to different colleges. Josh is really pussy-whipped and is always calling or sending his girlfriend videotapes of himself telling her how much he misses her. One night Josh gives into temptation and allows himself to be seduced by one cute, perky, little blonde. Why he allows her to tape this I do not know. Allow me to digress… Guys… If you’re gonna tape intimate moments… ERASE THEM RIGHT AWAY!!! Don’t think you’re smart enough to hide them. You’re not. Also, never accidentally leave them out so that your roommate will see an addressed envelope and stick it in the mail for you. That’s what happens in this movie. Thus the need for the road trip. Josh has a little better than 96 hours to haul ass from New York to Texas to intercept the video tape.

Accompanied by his three friends Rubin (Pauol Costanzo), Kyle (DJ Qualls), and E.L. (Seann William Scott), Josh sets off to get the tape. Along the way our boys find unique places to crash, like an all black national fraternity, and some dope smoking, Viagra taking grandparents. When their cash runs out they sell sperm, and when the blow up their wheels they steal a bus from a blind children’s school. Yadda, yadda, yadda… Do the boys complete their mission? Yes, but it doesn’t matter because the bitch dumps poor Josh anyway. Oh, I’m sorry, did I give that away? Ooops.

"Road Trip" may not have enough substance to become a cult classic like "Animal House", "Fast Time at Ridgemont High" or "Porky’s", but it’s right up there in my book with other coming of age movies like "American Pie" and "The Last American Virgin". I liked Road Trip and I give it 3 ½… Hmmm… No 4… Yes, 4 of 5 stars and I’m Stu Gotz. 'Nuff said.
