Bad Trip

Bad Trip ★★★★

2021
Netflix

"Let's steal that goddamn car, and go to New York and have the adventure of a lifetime."

I remember seeing the trailer for this before the Child's Play reboot a couple of years ago, right after they played a trailer for The Addams Family (which I found weird since I was seeing an R-rated horror movie), and being a fan of Eric Andre, I was excited. Unfortunately, MGM kept fucking up the release date and it got delayed for several months, and right when it looked like it was finally gonna be released, the pandemic happened. Then, MGM sold the rights to Netflix where it sat in the shelf for several months, and I thought it would never see the light of day until very recently, when the release date was announced. And I finally got around to watching it, and it was fucking hilarious.

I'm disappointed that I never got to see it in theaters, but I still had a good time. Eric Andre's combination of Jackass and Borat works very well as a comedy. While not as funny as his [adult swim] show, the film still manages to be hilarious in how Eric Andre can fool a bunch of people with his stunts and pranks. This film is basically like the street pranks on The Eric Andre Show except stretched into an 85-minute feature film. Definitely check it out if you are a fan of his show. 4/5.
