Joy Ride Review


Good Morning Lovelies, 

For a long time, there has been a Bridesmaids shaped hole in my heart. Nothing has quite compared to it. Girls Trip came very close, but, ultimately Bridesmaids is the real winner for me. However, Joy Ride might just be neck and neck with it. 

Adele Lim’s directorial debut is full to the brim with every bodily fluid possible, horrific comedic moments and a true story of an unbeatable sisterhood. Breaking down everything you may have been expecting from a feature like this, it is giving us audience members a chance to view roles in a completely new way. 

Following Audrey (Ashley Park) and Lolo (Sherry Cola), the film sees how their friendship came to be and the consequences that it has had on their adult lives. When Audrey finds herself having to go on a very important work trip, she is joined by her best friend and her family for an epic journey. 

With Seth Rogan as a producer, you can only imagine where the film and storyline goes next. Sex, drugs and rock and roll is putting it mildly. The characters are faced with every possible act, substance and nightlife possible, leading to endless amounts of equal laughter and disgust. 

Joy Ride pushes boundaries where others have failed to. It is a solid film that stands up on its own, breaking down walls as it goes. For every mild moment comes a rollercoaster one, leading you on a gripping comedic adventure. One that you won’t forget in a long time. All in a very good way.
