Eric Andre and Lil Rel Howery are the funniest duo I’ve seen since Step Brothers. I could not stop laughing, my stomach hurt. Tiffany Haddish actually surprised me in this movie. She was still hilarious but also menacing. I was just as scared of her as the other characters were. Bad Trip is a buddy road trip that will have you screaming at the top of your lungs.
I credit a lot of its success to the way it was filmed. The prank/reality TV look makes it feel less Hollywood and more of an authentic experience. Many of the reactions you see are genuine. You can clearly tell a lot of the cast didn’t know a movie was being shot. Andre’s facial expressions and body language are fantastic! The guy is a force of nature.
Lil Rel Howery is no pushover, he brings the comedy as well. As the voice of reason between the two, he ends up making things worse in certain situations. I can’t express how incredibly insane the stunts are. They range from over-the-top goofy to deadly action-packed scenes. Bad Trip is a unique viewing experience you owe to yourself. I give it an 8.5 out of 10.
