Cool Things About the DVD

What? Nothing really.  The "Making of" short was okay, but as opposed to the "Who did this voice?" thing, I would have rather had a look at how the animation was done.  Oh well.

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
As a fan of animated TV shows like "South Park," "The Simpsons," and "Beavis & Butthead," I find it surprising that I never found "Tripping the Rift" when it was on TV, but sadly, I didnít. Happily, though, I got to watch the DVD release of "Tripping the Rift: The Movie" and proceeded to laugh a lot. Hereís the basic storyÖ

Itís a weird outer space world where Chode (Stephen Root), a purple, horny, blob with three eyes, and his cast of cohorts, including TíNuk (Gayle Garfinkle), Gus (Maurice LaMarche, Whip (Rick Jones), and Six (Jenny McCarthy) travel around the galaxy in the spaceship Jupiter 42. Through a lot of teleporting and scheming, they first find themselves trying to protect a princess (they donít do too well), and then, wouldnít you know it, a crazed robot, "Exterminator," travels through time thanks to the mean Bobo, to try and kill Chode before a vial act can happen. Now Chode finds himself trying to stay alive, and thatís pretty much the story.

Doesnít sound very funny, does it? Sounds kinda of simple, doesnít it? Well the story is only the building block to an animated movie that does a fantastic job of making fun and spoofing just about anything it can, but mostly movies and pop culture. In the crosshairs, among others, are the Frankenstein story (complete in black & white), "The Terminator" franchise (if you didnít get that by the crazed, time-traveling robot being named "Exterminator" may I recommend you not watch this movie), and a hilarious take on "Desperate Housewives."

Now I donít know how dirty the TV series was, but this DVD is definitely for adults only as Chode is one horny devil and blob on human-form sex does happen, and whereas some of the recent spoofing movies have fallen flat, the originality in "Tripping the Rift: The Movie" is fantastic.

Double entendres abound in this movie and they are funny, the characters are goofy enough to like, and if you keep up with pop culture you will probably find "Tripping the Rift: The Movie" very funny. If not, well, a lot of the jokes will fly over your head.

Wrapping up, I really enjoyed the movie. Okay, the black & white "Frankenstein" chapter did drag for me a little, but once back in the colored world, "Tripping the Rift: The Movie" really took off. And who doesnít like an animated dudette with a nice rack! Itís 4 stars out of 5 from me, but if you donít understand why a line like "Chode, just stick it in!" can be funny, it might not be for you.

Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
