Review by Susan Granger
1 star out of 4

This is a silly, sophomoric sex comedy - and, if that's what you're in the mood for, line up at the popcorn counter. But it's not as good as "American Pie" or "There's Something About Mary." And it's not as funny as "National Lampoon's Animal House" or "Porky's." Breckin Meyer stars as Josh, who's been in love with Tiffany (Rachel Blanchard) since they were kids. He's committed to her - except for a college fling with sexually aggressive Beth (Amy Smart). But his infidelity was recorded on videotape - and that tape has been accidentally mailed to Tiffany. Which necessitates a spontaneous, desperate three-day, 1,800-mile road trip from Ithaca, New York, to Austin, Texas, to intercept the incriminating sexcapade and save his romance. He's accompanied by his bumbling best-friend, played by Seann William Scott, plus pot-smoking Paulo Costanzo and the requisite nerdy-guy-with-the-car, DK Qualls. So much for plot. MTV comedian Tom Green serves as the cryptic narrator/tour guide named Barry Manilow. (That moniker is typical of the lame humor.) Co-writer/director Todd Phillips wallows in the gross, crude antics as the four guys in a Taurus experience all the gratuitous nudity (a.k.a. bare breasts) their testosterone levels can conjure up. Unfortunately, none of this is very original if you've ever seen a dumb teenage sex comedy before. It's 91 minutes long - which only seems like three hours. On the Granger Movie Gauge of 1 to 10, "Road Trip" is a trashy, raunchy 3, determined to offend as many people as possible.
