• There was no nudity on Weeds last night.
  • There is no nudity in Angel of Death. IMDb's note about "nudity and aberrant sexuality" is incorrect, which means I wasted a lot of time on it.


Road Trip 2: Beer Pong

The latest trend in youthploitation sex comedies is branding. The straight-to-DVD stories are the same as they have always been, but lately they have been cobbled into the characters of some existing franchise with a familiar name. The trend was set by American Pie 4, 5, and 6. Then there was Van Wilder 2. Now there is Road Trip 2. Given that the original Road Trip is far more obscure than the original American Pie, you have to think that the people who make these things are getting kinda desperate for brand names. What's next? Freddy Got Fingered 2? Boat Trip 2?

Like the rest of the branded straight-tos, the relationship of Road Trip 2 to its predecessor is purely tangential.

  • In the first film, Tom Green was a student giving a campus tour to prospective students. In the process, he told them a long anecdote about a legendary campus road trip which he was not on. The Green tour was merely the framing story, while his anecdote was the gist of the movie, as told in a prolonged flashback. One of the students on the road trip was the lanky, awkward, virginal D.J. Qualls.
  • In the sequel, Qualls is now a graduate student and is now giving the tour. He tells the prospective students a long anecdote about a legendary campus road trip which he was not on. The Qualls tour is merely the framing story, while his anecdote is the gist of the movie, as told in a prolonged flashback. One of the students on the road trip is the lanky, awkward, virginal Danny Pudi.

Since in both cases the real movie consists of the flashbacks rather than the framing story, since the flashbacks in both films are simply generic youth comedies, and since there are no common characters in the flashbacks, Road Trip 2 film has almost no connection to Road Trip.

Of course, that doesn't really matter. We don't really care if the title is misleading, do we? The only thing we really care about is whether the flick is any good. After all, some of the previous examples of branded straight-tos have been virtually unrelated to their inspirations, but have nonetheless been fun to watch. I liked American Pie 5: The Naked Mile, for example. That film had sympathetic characters, some good jokes, lots of nudity, and a pretty clever plot which ended in a big, original set piece to get to the requisite "boy gets girl back" moment. That film really had nothing to do with American Pie, but it was still an entertaining piece of sexy fluff. If that film represented the top shelf bottle of branded straight-to-vid alcohol, Road Trip 2 represents the dregs at the bottom of the branded barrel. It's barely worth mentioning at all, but here are the key facts in bullet points:

1. Generic plot.

2. Astounding lack of laughs. Nothing but by-the-numbers gags, very few of which were even worth a try.

3. No characters to relate to.

4. Lots of female nudity, including some frontals, but none from any main characters. That's a shame, because the female star, Julianna Guill, is a major babe, and she has shown a willingness to do screen nudity with an excellent nude scene in the recent Friday the 13th remake. Unfortunately, all the nudity in this film comes from topless strippers, topless bartenders, and naked "beer pong girls" having a pillow fight.

5. Although the film runs for 96 minutes, there is no nudity after the 40 minute mark, not even from extras. That means that the last hour or so of this film consists of a PG-13 college road trip. Bor-ing!


There are no reviews or comments at IMDb, and there are not enough votes for a rating.

The nudity is here: The older stripper with the implants is Michele Gordon, and the other stripper with a line, the one who gets pissed on, is Kaitlyn Reid. I was not able to identify the third stripper, who has no lines and is uncredited. All of the beer pong chicks and topless bartenders are anonymous eye candy.

BONUS: since we did not get to see Joanna Guill topless in this movie, here are some caps of her terrific scene in Friday 13th:




  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.
