College student Lewis decides to drive across the country to see Venna, a friend who doesn't know that Lewis is interested in her romantically. Unfortunately for his plans, Lewis gets saddled with his raucous-spirited older brother, Fuller, whose on-the-road pranks get the brothers and Venna sucked into a nightmare when a psychotic truckdriver takes offense.Written by

Was renamed 'Road Kill' in the UK, since taking a 'Joy Ride' is not the pleasant journey it is in the states, rather the name for when youths steal cars and race each other or the cops, drive rings at high speed and eventually total (usually setting it on fire) and dump the car. Similarly, the film was also renamed Roadkill in Australia. See more »

You know, with the exception of the seat spring piercing my ass, this ride's excellent.

Done that, been there... A dime a dozen film
It is not a bad movie. It has enough excitement to make you sit it out. It's just another copy of same old, same old. The dialogues are pretty poor in my opinion, I can't remember enjoying one line in particular. The idea is old, done routinely. Guys pull a prank on some dude, a trucker in this flick, and the prankee is 'not amused'. The entire film is about the main characters being chased. No great special effects, no great acting, no great music score, no great nothin'. The sideline about the brother in prison is useless in my opinion, it serves no purpose. Television stuff. And yes, there is a possibility Joy Ride II will see the light.
