Lia Marie Johnson,
Trippin', not just another "crappy stoner movie". Trippin is not murdering a few sex-crazed teens camping in some remote location, that's been done way to many times. Instead "Trippin" is a comedy, horror, mystery/suspense parody on the "stoner flicks" of the past. Any expectations you might have had based on trailers, even postcards, need to be thrown out. Trippin will have you as pleasantly surprised as I was. This is from a guy who was dragged, clawing my way not to go see it. Was I wrong about Trippin.
Unlike most whodunit's where you know what is going to happen long before it does, with "Trippin" you really don't care because you're enjoying what's going on. Sure, there's a plot, there're conflicts, a few twists here and there and then there is a conclusion to all of this but there is so much to make you laugh that you really won't care that you already know what's going to happen!
Now Trippin is by no means perfect, what flick is these days? It's made with very little (if any) money, and like most "indies" the beginning was a bit slower than what I would have liked. However, the wife absolutely loved it and for her, that says a lot as she mostly hates this "banal crap."
True, like I said, I had to be dragged to this women's "horror film fest" but I actually had a great time, especially watching Trippin. As for being such a "macho idiot" and have to be "dragged, kicking and screaming" to a "woman's horror film fest" that I actually enjoyed, I had to write this review but it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.
Trippin is well worth seeing and I think that you, like me, will be glad your girlfriend/wife dragged you to see it. Tripping is smart, funny, and has a strong set of female characters. Go see it and then take your punishment like a man and write your own review. I did!
