Road Trip

Theatrical Release: May 19, 2000
Road Trip


Narrated by Barry (Tom Green) as he gives a tour on the campus of Ithaca College in upstate New York, “Road Trip” tells the story of his friend Josh (Breckin Meyer), Josh’s girlfriend Tiffany (Rachel Blanchard), and Josh’s new girlfriend Beth (Amy Smart). Josh and Tiffany were a couple and best friends since they were little kids. Their relationship became long-distance when they went away to different colleges.
Josh was misled to believe that Tiffany was cheating on him. He then slept with Beth, who videotaped the whole thing. At the same time Josh learns that Tiffany was not cheating on him, he discovers that the videotape had accidentally been sent to her. He then gathers a few friends who rush down to Austin, Texas in order to intercept the tape before Tiffany can see it. The story follows the boys on their adventurous trip to the University of Texas.

Dove Review

The movie will probably appeal to teenagers, but it is raunchy and void of morals or any positive life-lesson. The language is foul, one lead character is high on marijuana for much of the movie, and most of the storyline revolves around sex. The gross out comedy is aimed at a young male audience, and contains more raunchy behavior than last year’s “American Pie.”
