Storyline

Have you ever had a bad trip? In this stark black comedic tale, three adolescent boys and one sinfully attractive cheerleader will embark on a hallucinogenic journey that will lead them nowhere beneficial. Tommy, an unusually extroverted, exaggerated loner is pitted against his ridiculously popular older brother, Richard, while Richard's friend Colby buzzes around them both. Spicing things up at a rapid rate, Sasha, head cheerleader and domineering goddess, plans a party with the most sexual of intentions, unintentionally causing an insanely outlandish chain reaction in the process. From vindictive drug dealers and dreamlike scenarios, to the possibility of murder, anything is feasible. Functioning like a fever dream, with exaggerated archetypes, Trip Out shatters the mold of traditional high school films and reshapes it into something not easily forgotten. Written by James M. Hausler

Great Trip
26 March 2008 | by (Binghamton, NY) – See all my reviews

"Trip Out" tells three times from three perspectives the story of three guys who get blasted on drugs, each story filling in details of the events that transpired up to the fateful events later on in the film. It's not a complicated movie but it is very entertaining.

The dialog in this movie is hysterical - especially that of Colby, white thug wannabe, who mouths off without provocation to acquaintances and strangers alike. He's somehow friends with Richard, the most popular man in school, who berates and belittles Colby, sometimes too much. Richard's brother is Tommy, introverted outcast whose role in the movie goes from sad alienated youth to something surprisingly sinister.

Events in the movie play out smoothly, parts that involve two or more of the central characters that have already been witnessed are skipped over with smooth transitions. The characters progress in smart ways, gaining and losing the viewer's sympathy in unexpected ways.

"Trip Out" is a short ride but always fun - drug use, swearing and sex are all present in abundance, all set to a great soundtrack. None of the actors are famous but they do a fine job, as well as the director. All in all a quality picture - worth catching if you can find it.
