This week on End Credits, we’re going high-brow and low-brow. We’re going to review the new comedy Bad Trip, which, yes, is a double entendre, but is the Bad Trip, really a bad trip, or is it a good trip? Is this Inception? We’ll find out, and we’ll also talk about this year’s Oscars ceremony, which was very different, but still somehow managed to court controversy.
This Wednesday, April 28, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Golden Moments. The Oscars took place last weekend, and it was a perfect show. Ha! Of course, it wasn’t. No Oscars show is perfect, but this year’s show was definitely interesting. The show was filmed at Union Station in L.A., it was a small crowd, there were no elaborate musical numbers or gags, and there were surprises. We’ll run down the pros and cons of this year’s Oscars ceremony.
REVIEW: Bad Trip (2021). We’ve seen so many movies where two best friends get in a car and go on a road trip with comedic results. But consider this: two friends from Florida go on a road trip to New York City and enjoy some hilarious hijinks, but while those actors know they’re making a movie, no one else will. Part road movie, part prank show, Bad Trip offers a lot of comedic gold, and a lot of cringe-worthy moments, but how well does it manage the two parts of its personality, and did those people really think they were looking at a real gorilla?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
