Blurb:

This mix of a scripted buddy comedy road movie and a real hidden camera prank show follows the outrageous misadventures of two buds stuck in a rut who embark on a cross-country road trip to NYC. The storyline sets up shocking real pranks.

Review:

I never really got into the Jackass movies or TV show and I only kind of like Sacha Baron Cohen stuff. I’ve seen them, but it wasn’t for me. Bad Trip, on the other hand, was freaking hilarious. It had enough of those types of gags, without going too far, and there was a “story.” They weren’t mean to people with their pranks. Well, mostly not mean.

I’m a fan of Tiffany Haddish after watching Girl Trip, and I absolutely loved her parts of the movie. Watching a clip where she escaped from prison is what brought Bad Trip to my attention. I laughed through this movie. There were a few moments when I was afraid that the people in the South would play into stereotypes, but for the most part, they didn’t. I was happy about that, and I don’t want to know if it took multiple takes to get there.

There was only one skit that I rolled my eyes at, but it was amusing enough not to be a deal-breaker. It was more of a there is no way anyone thought that was real sort of thing.

All in all, I really liked it.

4/5
