    Road Trip ... celebrates the triumph of hedonistic righteousness in a world where it already rules.

    As we all know, bad taste is timeless. And sometimes it can be so funny that you can't help laughing.

    The movie takes a slice out of the American Pie recipe book by at least making the final screen product funnier than the trailer.

    Road Trip may not have the all-time-classic status of Animal House, but it's frequently as funny.

  • Jay Carr Boston Globe (Top Critic)
    Road Trip occasionally wills itself to rude, crude life. But most of the time it's pretty limp.

  • Bruce Westbrook Houston Chronicle (Top Critic)
    Road Trip rides the wave of popularity for base, politically incorrect, outrageous humor.

  • Tom Maurstad Dallas Morning News (Top Critic)
    Road Trip is broadly amusing with a few bright spots. But those can't cover up the major gaps in storytelling, characterization and laughs.

    Road Trip is mellow and dirty, which is the wrong combination.

  • Mark Caro Chicago Tribune (Top Critic)
    As the guys continue on their way to Texas, this Road Trip degenerates into a slow-moving game of connect-the-gross-outs.

    Road Trip is the best dumb party movie of the year; if that's what you've been craving, buckle up.

    Road Trip takes a well-traveled highway, but the drivers know exactly what they're doing.

  • Jay Boyar Orlando Sentinel (Top Critic)
    It's no masterpiece, you understand, but it doesn't count on the raging hormones of its audience to do all of its work.

  • Sean Means Film.com (Top Critic)
    As objectionable as its subject matter is, the most objectionable thing is that it's not funny.

    Multiplexes should be thronged with howling, high-fiving young men deep into summer.

    The movie is sloppily made, but there's almost a sly charm to the sloppiness, and the unevenness of the filmmaking doesn't detract from the picture's most obvious laughs.

  • Nekesa Mumbi Moody Associated Press (Top Critic)
    Still, although the subject matter is sophomoric it has enough of a plot and key performances to humor more sophisticated moviegoers too.

  • Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times (Top Critic)
    On the whole it works because its over-the-top humor is supported by the filmmakers' ability to view life with a clear-eyed lack of sentimentality.

    Just a cut above the typical, but it goes without saying: your mileage may vary. [Blu-ray]
