Critic Reviews for Trippin
Intermittently funny and good-natured, Trippin' won't disappoint its target audience.
A disjointed, lowbrow comedy about a teen coping with his uncertain future through daydreams.
An after-school special posing as Booty Call, stumbling badly over its clunky message-movie scripting.
There are stray sparks of satiric wildness shooting out from this preachy teen message movie.
The pliant-featured Richmond is an agreeable, comically adept lead.
Audience Reviews for Trippin
The charismatic Deon Richmond plays a high school senior and major daydreamer Gregory "G" Reed who is your typical loser. His fantasy life takes up too much time to accomplish the tasks at hand, despite the constant goading of his friends and family. He daydreams of a rap-video lifestyle in which bikini clad sex kittens, wealth and high style are his. But upon waking, G faces a less appealing reality --- his middle-class, hard-working parents nag him to fill out college applications, his part-time job at a rib joint is a drag, and nobody wants to be his prom date especially the gorgeous, brainy and popular Cinny (Maia Campbell), who hardly notices him until he solicits her help in applying to colleges. However, with things looking up, G lets his flights of fancy get the best of him. Not only does he lie to Cinny about being accepted into UCLA, he also boasts publicly about the nature of their relationship. Needless to say, she isn't happy when his fibbing is revealed. In between trying to satisfy his parents, earn the affection of his beloved and avoid the neighborhood drug dealer (Stony Jackson), G may not survive his senior year.
