Did You Know?

Bobbie:Well gang, here we are. Right smack dab in the middle of nowhere. At least a whole day's walk to the nearest boy.
Julie:If that's all you can think of, Bobbie, then why did you come on this trip?
Bobbie:My mother insisted. Hey listen - don't tell me you never think about boys.
Julie:Don't be absurd, Bobbie, of course I do.
Bobbie:Then you know there is a difference between the boys and the girls!
Pam:Just what are you getting at, Bobbie?
Bobbie:The truth! Just tell it like it is - truth.
Julie:Nothing wrong with that.
Tina:My, my. Sounds like regular group therapy.
Bobbie:Aw, not at all. At least I'm honest about what I do.

You know whatever way you look at it, it's still enjoyable!, 1 March 2010
Author: Moviefreak4653 from United States

B-Movies are one sub genre I can typically tend to enjoy no matter how bad. Like sometimes I'll love them (Chopping Mall, Return to Horror High, The Undertaker and His Pals), but then sometimes I'll usually just shrug at them, not really liking it, but not hating it. This usually just derives from me respecting the genre so much. Therefore putting in "Trip with the Teacher" I wasn't sure what to expect. I will say I'm not one to laugh at how crappy or cheesy a film is, but "Trip with the Teacher" is perhaps the first B-Movie that hasn't gained notoriety for being one of the worst movies ever that made me laugh so hard which made me enjoy this film. Like the music score is so cheesy, and it just makes the film more confusing as to what type of film it is. Like is it a horror film (not really), drama (eh), action (if you consider hilariously stunted motorcycle chases action I guess) rape-revenge (not really), which I guess for it to be 1975 it does have its nods towards "The Last House on the Left" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre". Okay well the plot is a little ridicules; like it's about these girls (pretty much dressed the same in skimpy outfits, not that I'm complaining) who are on a field trip (more of a trip organized by their parents who didn't want them around) with a teacher (more of a chaperon), who while on a school bus (:-/) get stranded in the middle of nowhere (which I'll admit the location is very eerie and pretty). Not to fear the girls flirted with a couple of bikers surely they can help them. Well of course there has to be one strong man, and two evil brothers who are the villains. Yeah so the plot is a little out there, but most importantly this film is hilarious. Okay for the record I do my best not to laugh at movies; like in the sense of they don't want you to laugh at it. However halfway through the film I couldn't take it anymore, the huge grin on my face had to be released, and boy did I have fun laughing at this; like even after one of the brothers rapes a teacher, and shoves alcohol down another girl's throat, even killing the bus driver, I was laughing so hard. You know, I don't think that in this case laughing at it in this sort of way, even though I'm sure or at least hope the filmmakers didn't want you to laugh at in this way, is all a bad thing. I mean I didn't hate the film any less, in fact it made me enjoy it more, and sure it was crappy, was kind of bad as far as an actual movie goes (hence the term B-Movie), but laughing at its dullness, or poor writing, or whatever is something that makes certain B-Movies so enjoyable. Overall is "Trip with the Teacher" one of the best B-Movies ever? Perhaps not. Is it one of the worst films I've ever seen? Absolutely not. It's a B-Movie, and that's what makes the reputation precede it. If you can't enjoy the movie itself, and if you don't take it seriously fine, but find something to enjoy with these type movies. For "Trip with the Teacher" is hands down one of the funniest films I've ever seen, which is why it's one of the most enjoyable B-Movies out there.
