Bad Trip

Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Bad Trip

Where You Can Stream It: Netflix

The Pitch: From one of the guys that brought you Jackass and Bad Grandpa, this hidden camera comedy follows best friends Chris and Bud (Eric André and Lil Rey Howery) as they go on a cross-country road trip to pursue one of their high school sweethearts. Meanwhile, Tiffany Haddish is in hot pursuit as Bud’s escaped convict sister, who is pissed that her hot pink car has been taken without her permission. But this isn’t just your average buddy road trip comedy. Along the way, the narrative includes inventive pranks on real, unsuspecting people, pulling its real-life audience into the mayhem.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: Sacha Baron Cohen has perfected the hidden camera comedy that pulls real people into insane situations with cringeworthy results in the Borat film franchise. However, Jackass and Bad Grandpa producer Jeff Tremaine and director Kitao Sakurai get a little more wild and crazy with their stunts in the narrative-driven prank movie Bad Trip. That’s not the surprising part though. What will really catch you off guard is that no matter how raunchy and inappropriate Bad Trip gets, it’s full of kindhearted, helpful people willing to lend a hand in some truly shocking and awkward scenarios.

Eric André (The Eric André Show, Man Seeking Woman) rarely shies away from comedic extremes in his work, and it appears that streak will continue in Bad Trip, the new prank movie which debuts on Netflix later this month.

The streamer has released a new trailer for the film that showcases some pranks we’ve seen in previous marketing materials, but also reveals a new bit involving André and co-star Lil Rel Howery as the two – well, there’s no way to put this delicately – get their dicks stuck in a Chinese finger trap and wander onto a golf course. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

bad trip netflix release date

Bad Trip, a movie I remember seeing trailers for in theaters over a year ago, is finally being released – on Netflix. The hidden camera comedy featuring Eric André, Lil Rel Howery, and Tiffany Haddish, was once slated to arrive in theaters in 2019. Then it got pushed to 2020. And then, of course, the pandemic got in the way. At one point, the film dropped onto Amazon Prime Video – even though it wasn’t supposed to be there. It was promptly pulled from that service, and now it’s officially headed to Netflix next month.

Netflix Comedians Check in with Neal Brennan

Plenty of industries are hurting because of the coronavirus pandemic, and that includes entertainment. But while movies and TV shows are starting to get back into production, live stand-up comedy shows are still mostly non-existent because gathering a bunch of people in a single room to open their mouths and guffaw incessantly isn’t the smartest movie when there’s a contagious virus kicking around. But Netflix recently put together a little video to hold us over with some of their biggest comedy stars.

Netflix asked comedian Neal Brennan to check in with some of his fellow comics like Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Tig Notaro, John Mulaney, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, David Letterman, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Steve Martin, and many more. Brennan wanted to provide some levity not just for the comedians stuck at home without an audience, but also for their fans who miss seeing the on stage, so he asks them all about their favorite jokes, comics, previous jobs, and more.
