Bad Trip

Bad Trip -

A very funny candid camera comedy in the style of Borat. The plot is as ordinary as it sounds: a hapless guy (Eric Andre) drags his best friend Bud (Lil Rel Howery) along on a road trip to win the affection of his dream girl (Michaela Conlin), but it provides an ideal canvas to string a bunch of pranks together. Highlights include their disastrous country bar visit and when they just miss Bud's murderous ex-con sister (Tiffany Haddish) - whose car the duo stole - at a restaurant, which has a patron whose commentary is pure poetry. Besides Andre, Howery and Haddish being such brilliant performers, the pranks work because they have just the right combination of outrageous and hilarious. Some pranks, like one at a zoo, are a bit more outrageous than they are funny, but there are more hits than misses. Oh, and if you like smoothies, be warned that it might put you off them for a while.
