Trippin' | 1999 | R | - 5.5.8

A high school senior who spends his time daydreaming instead of deciding what to do after graduation asks a brainy, beautiful girl to help him fill out college applications. With Deon Richmond, Maia Campbell, Donald Adeosun Faison, Guy Torry, Countess Vaughn, Aloma Wright, Harold Sylvester, Cleavon McClendon, Bill Henderson, Michael Warren and Stoney Jackson. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo and several kisses (one is passionate, and we see a few couples kissing passionately in the background of a scene). A shirtless boy lays a banana between a girl's buttock, pours chocolate syrup, whipped cream and cherries on her back and then licks it off (we see the girl's bare back and most of her bare buttocks); they also kiss passionately. In daydream sequences, scantily clad women pull a boy onto a bed (he gets up after a few seconds), rub him and dance around him; also, a boy lies on top of a girl (the scene ends, but we do hear them moaning and obviously having intercourse for a few seconds afterwards) and a girl starts bending down in front of a boy, presumably to perform fellatio, but he tells her to wait until later. In a daydream, a woman opens her bikini top and reveals her bare breasts to a boy; we then see him licking two sunny-side up eggs (as if they were her breasts). A boy wiggles his tongue suggestively at a girl and a boy thrusts his hips on a bed and at a girl. A boy playfully slaps a girl's buttocks while they're dancing, a boy's face hits a woman's clothed buttocks and a boy puts his hands on two women's scantily clad buttocks. A boy asks another for a condom and we see a worn condom wrapper and briefly a box of condoms. A video camera focuses on a clothed woman's breasts and crotch. A girl's buttocks are visible through a sheer, short nightgown. Lots of scantily clad women in bikinis, short skirts and cleavage- and midriff-revealing tops. A boy is forced to kiss a statue of bare buttocks.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - In a dream sequence, a boy is hit with a chair and shot repeatedly but he's not injured (he spits bullets from his mouth and blows one out of his nose); he then breaks a boy's neck, pulls a leg brace off a boy and beats him with it, shoves a rib into a man's head (we see a little barbecue sauce on his head and the rib) and throws him onto a grill (we hear him sizzle a bit). In another dream sequence, a boy shoots lots of people during a battle (no blood is seen) and then his arm is severed by a bomb (we see his arm hanging on a rope and hear him fall to the ground). A bound and gagged man is lifted by a crane; later, tape is ripped from his mouth and he's cut loose. A boy headbutts, punches and throws another and it's implied a group of girls punch and scratch a boy behind a closed door. A boy lifts another up and is then kicked in the crotch. Some shoves and a few punches. A boy is pushed out of bed and a woman slaps the side of a boy's head. We briefly see a boy playing a video game that shows men punching each other and blood spurting from wounds. One scene of threatening with guns and a knife. A boy in boxers is chased by another boy. A girl is shoved into a plate of cake and gets frosting on her dress.

LANGUAGE 8 - About 22 F-words, lots of anatomical references (two are seen), lots of scatological references, lots of mild obscenities, many insults and many racial epithets.

MESSAGE - A relationship can't be based on deception; everyone has to grow up and face reality sometime.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
