There are so many grim and gritty urban violence movies that it's good to see nice African-American kids in a comedy, even if it's so lacking in imagination that it finds it necessary to hang them upside down.

A few of the daydream sequences are uproarious, but Trippin' tries to get real too late in the game.

The star's winning smile is the only redeeming quality of this atrocious, predictable teen comedy.

As it is, Trippin' is serviceable as an undemanding date movie.

The teen comedy 'Trippin' features a clever technique, but it's trapped inside a stock premise that was exhausted years ago. At best, it would make a nice pilot for a TV sitcom.

Some funny moments and the likeability of Richmond's character make it a tolerable way to pass time, despite the fact (aside from Richmond's fantasies) we've seen everything here many times before.

The unfunny script is filled with extremely awkward snippets of dialog.

January 1, 2000
Trippin' is a juvenile comedy with its heart in the right place and its airy head incapable of applying logic to its script.
January 1, 2000
The disappointment is that the occasional insights into teen anxieties and aspirations aren't so far off, but the hijinks are tired: you've seen them in too many other high school movies.

Lazy, limply written tripe trying to pass as harmless entertainment.

January 1, 2000
Like its main character, Trippin' spends too much time in a fantasy world and not nearly enough in real life.
February 14, 2001
If you want to see an entertaining black high school movie, rent House Party or Cooley High, both funny and intelligent takes on the subject. I'm sure they both took more than a week to write.

What might have been funny and endearing is instead just more self-inflicted negative stereotypes and marginalizing images.
August 7, 2008
This recklessly constructed mix of social messages, sexual fantasies and street profanity certainly won't be accused of trying to preach to the choir.

As formulaic as it sounds.

September 7, 2011
There are stray sparks of satiric wildness shooting out from this preachy teen message movie.

An after-school special posing as Booty Call, stumbling badly over its clunky message-movie scripting.
