You're probably wondering why I'm rating this film so damn high. It's because I have a particular taste for this. I love this film. I'm a huge Kevin McDonald fan and the role he plays is just priceless. So, seeing that this film finally came to DVD, I'm not overjoyed, I'm ecstatic.

The film is simple. Really bad class make a foolish mistake after Principal tells them to, Senator with bad plot to President sees bad class, and wants to bring bad class to Capitol Hill to ruin President. It's simple, see? But, the antics that follow are so golden, so hysterical. Especially Chong's role as the sedated bus driver. Matt Frewer is also classic as well as Jeremy Renner and Rob Moore...both who should be in more films.

The film also boasts a killer soundtrack that I will always listen to, to this day. With rock and a great cast and some hysterical moments, this is a definite to your DVD collection. It's a bit dated, mostly because the times and all, but it's so good. I say this with all honesty, this movie really deserved better than it received, and since I have an opportunity to review this first, I shall put this movie to it's high rank! A ha!

Buy this...NOW. It's...great.

Good comedy for rainy day times.

I'll never forget when I heard that Tommy Chong was going to be in a movie on the previews and I was a Cheech and Chong fan at the time and although I didn't see it in the movie theater cause I wasn't old enough to watch it but we rented it and me and my family were laughing our butts off, and we taped it when it came on Starz movie channel and the tape got destroyed a few months later from watching it constantly, but a few years ago I decided to buy this movie on VHS (not sure if it's released on DVD or not) and I'm glad that I own this movie.
The movie takes place in Fairmount High School somewhere located in Ohio where this persistant principal makes sure that the students show up to class on time, but here we meet the main characters Dags and Reggie who are stoners show up late to class in an old Jeep and they crashed the pole and it lands on the principal's brand new car!! That scene was hilarious, then they cause a havoc at the assembly and the students decide to skip school and go party at the principal's house but unfortunately the principal finds out about it he is MAD!! There are some hilarious scenes at the party where I won't mention, then the principal gives the students a Saturday detention and the students claim that the government sucks and the principal wants the students to write a 500 word letter to the president about how they feel, then the president reads the letter and he really thought well of it and he invites the students to Washington D.C. to express themselves about how they feel about the school system, we then get to meet Senator John Lerman who is a bad guy cause he wants to make the president a laughing stock and he wants to become the president and the students go off to Washington D.C. and there are a bunch of hilarious moments throughout the movie which I'm going to keep for myself, and Tommy Chong plays the stoner bus driver who is really hilarious throughout the movie.
I was surprised to hear that the movie got really bad reviews from the critics and I think that their problem is that they don't have much of an open mind and it bombed in the box office which was unfortunate, if you're in the mood for a comedy where you just want to sit down and laugh, this movie is recommended.

This movie is definitely worth it if you are into crazy school kid humor. It's a bummer that there aren't really any good special features. Oh well. Long live the Dope King!

Senior Trip is the greatest ... movie of all time!!! I remember when I first time I saw it. I saw it w/ my best friend and we started to cry because it was so funny. It was so histarical. No other movie even comes close to how funny it was. There is only one flaw to make it a 100% movie... it should be a DVD it still isn't one... I'm mad a bout that. New Line Cinema should make it a DVD. I don't see why they don't do it. Anyways it's my favorite movie of all time... So I guess thats it so... See it!!! I really recomend you should... I promise you won't be dissapointed!!!

A classic movie from my teen years that my wife had never seen. We bought it because we couldnt find anywhere that had it to rent. I will keep it in my collection next to my malrats and clerks.

So, they say that the more advanced the mind is, the more it craves mindless play. I like to think that rather than be known as a moron, but I love this movie.

It's dumb, juvenile, simplistic, glorifies dope heads, has mischievous grade school pranks, features promiscuity and is outright implausible, but it's also genius and entertaining from the script, to the acting and directing.
If you like Cheech and Chong movies, Star Trek parodies, and at least knew of Max Headroom, you will adore this movie even more. Most people will NOT get it, I am sure.

I wish I had seen it in the theater as my friend did. She told me that she saw a matinee of it where there was her and some other person in the entire theater. After fifteen minutes, she was the only one watching it. While she did not praise it, later when I caught it on satellite for the first time, I told her I felt honored I knew someone who actually paid to see it first run! She still does not get it though and thinks it's still an awful stupid movie.

Stupid fun it is and I will not go into the story so you just have to watch it!

Before there were teen movie parodies, there was National Lampoon's. I love comedies, but this has to be one of my favorites. This is the tale of the stuff kids can get into that their parents never find out about. My favorite character in the movie is the flamer, a man who believes that he's Capton Kirk with a blow up doll to boot. The only bad thing about this movie is the ending is under climactic, but that's what all are teen years lead up to.

Anyone who appreciates satire will find this movie pretty funny. The irony of the situation is that the movie is "not sold to persons under 18." The truth of the matter is, it's mostly people under 18 who will find this amusing. It's not bad to watch once, and it's better to watch it with a group of friends (who can always be trusted to supply funny lines where the dialogue is lacking!).

Very funny movie! I recall the first view of this at its release and remember it being very fun to watch over and over.

Trying to think of favorite scenes, several here. I guess it's always a highlight to see all the sections THE PRINCIPAL is in.

Strong recommendation to view/buy this film! It IS a great classic comedy to me with lots of replay value.

I remember the first time i watched this movie, from the scene were the two guys stumble out of an old mail jeep (with an immense smoke cloud following them) after they just ran into their school's flagpole, i laughed as hard as i could and i didnt stop until the credits were done. Its one of those few movies that actually makes you hurt because your laughing so much. Tommy Chong and that guy from the kids in the hall (i cant believe i can't remember his name, he was my favorite)both do a great job in this movie. Tommy basically plays the old chong character, but this time he's a school bus driver, and he actually reminds me of this one bus driver i had that let us do anything. Kevin Mcdonald (I remember now) does a amazing comic job as a psychopathic, crossing guard, star-trek junkie who somehow believes that one of the students is a Klingon ambasador and must be termanated. The basic story isnt anything special, basically the kids have to get to washington in a few days to speak at a senate hearing on education reform. But the comic brilliance of the scenes that actually take place in this movie are pure gold. I can't believe this didnt come out in theatres (or did it?) because im sure it would be a smash with the youth market. It really does rank up there with Kingpin, maybe a little less funny, but if you like Kingpin then theres no doubt you'd love this. But please, if you are offended by ANYTHING, then dont watch this movie, you'll just want to complain about how offensive or mean-spirited it is. As a side note, I dont understand how people can actually be offended by something they see in a movie, can't they just forgot their ego for a second and laugh? Also there are two versions of the movie, one edited and one uncut. I'd say go with the edited, because all of the scenes that were cut desearved to be cut, they just were not that funny and kind of brought the whole movie down. Especially the alternate ending where there is a final confontation between the crossing guard and the stoner guy, it was a few chuckles but the original ending was much better.
