Trivia

The bus driver "Red" played by Tommy Chong hums the tune, and sings some of the lyrics, from the song "Earache My Eye", which was the song that Chong and Cheech Marin play at the end of Up in Smoke (1978). See more »

Goofs

The bus carrying the kids seems to be traveling south because they pass through Pennsylvania on the way to Washington D.C., but on arrival, the overhead shot shows the bus coming north on Arlington Memorial Bridge near the Lincoln Monument. The re-route doesn't seem likely considering the rigid itinerary Principal Moss is keeping. See more »

Perfect for a relaxing laugh.
20 November 2002 | by (Southern Boy) – See all my reviews

I was overly joyed when I saw the trailers for Senior Trip. It appeared to be a very good no brainer for a 90 minute laugh. Unfortunately it wasn't well taken to by movie-goers which made its release to vhs very slow and limited. It hasn't even made it to dvd yet and I know of terribly worse comedies that have, and most are from the present Saturday Night Live Crew. The film does fulfill the area of not only certain high school hijenks, but also a human feeling for the kids of that specific time. It pushed through the ideas of free alcohol, drugs but not so much sex. There was the element of sex, in words and conversation, but no real nudity or fulfillment. Overall an excellent film that would have done better a few years later when teen flix came back with a vengeance. Senior Trip carries with it the National Lampoon feel of Animal House, but doesn't veer off into a demented spoof like Not Another Teen Movie. It filled the void where drama and action films had worn away movie goers in the mid 90s. Watch for Tommy Chong as the bus driver and the chemistry, whether electrified or jaded between the characters.
