(PaPaPa, AbAb, PC, LLL, VV, SSS, NNN, AA, DD, MMM) Strong pagan worldview where one of the major villains wears a shirt saying “God is awesome,” thus mocking Christians who often enjoy proclaiming their faith using pop culture, plus elements of homosexuality & political correctness, an evil anti-Christian ideology created by Marxist provocatuers, who spread it in America in the 1960s, thereby infecting the nation’s political & religious culture; 34 obscenities, 16 profanities, obscene gestures, & other lewd behavior meant to be gross; strong slapstick violence including fighting, car explodes, man tortures mouse, & snake bites; strong sexual content including depicted fornication, implied fornication, stripping for seduction, woman puts on condom, man asks two semi-nude women to kiss each other (which they do), female proctologist masterbates male college student, dogs shown mating, & couples lie in bed together; upper male & female nudity, full female nudity in bathroom scene, college student strips for male student, & men & women in revealing underwear; alcohol use, drunkenness, underage college drinking, & wild fraternity party with alcohol; marijuana use shown & encouraged; and, frequent miscellaneous immorality including students take advantage of awkward student, whom they teach debauchery, reckless behavior & other immoral behavior.

Summary:

The new slob comedy ROAD TRIP involves a college student who must retrieve a pornographic tape he did before his childhood sweetheart finds it in her student mailbox. Filled with numerous instances of foul language, sexual immorality, crude behavior, and graphic nudity, the almost totally tasteless ROAD TRIP also advocates marijuana use and mocks Christians who enjoy proclaiming the power of God.

Review:

The new movie ROAD TRIP continues the trend of tasteless slob comedies which started in 1978 with NATIONAL LAMPOON’S ANIMAL HOUSE. Like last year’s AMERICAN PIE, however, the sex and nudity quotient, not to mention the illegal drug quotient, is on a huge upswing, mostly because of the Farrelly Brothers’ THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY.

Compared to ROAD TRIP, ANIMAL HOUSE now almost seems like something out of REBECCA OF SUNNYBROOK FARM. In this one, a college student at Ithaca University in New York tapes himself fornicating with a pretty blonde girl who likes him. The tape accidentally gets mailed to his childhood sweetheart whom he thought had ditched him but who actually was attending her grandfather’s funeral. With a couple friends in tow, he drives all the way to Austin, Texas to retrieve the tape before his sweetheart finds it in her dorm room there.

As expected from the advertising for this movie (DreamWorks studio sent condoms to the press as part of its sick campaign for this movie), ROAD TRIP contains numerous instances of foul language, sexual immorality, crude behavior, and graphic nudity. Nearly totally tasteless, it also advocates marijuana use, a completely irresponsible act that will further destroy America’s crumbling public education system. Finally, one of the major villains in the piece wears a shirt saying, “God is awesome.” This mocks Christians who enjoy proclaiming the power of God.

This is not a road to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, or even a road to beauty and truth. It’s a pagan journey to Hell.

Happily, the Bible teaches in Psalm 3:8 of the original Hebrew Scriptures that deliverance comes from the Lord. The same Hebrew Scriptures also say, in Psalm 2:12, “Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for His wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.”
