Product Description

What begins for Chode and crew as a routine mission to protect a pi$$ed-off princess will soon become a filth- splattered saga of dismembered royalty, indestructible clown assassins and desperately horny housewives. What vile act has Chode committed to bring down the ultimate wrath of Bobo? Can Gus, Six, T'nuk, Whip and Bob stop a time-traveling killing machine from ruining a booze-soaked birthday party? How much does a lap- dance cost at the Grope-A-Cabana on Omicron 9? The voices of Stephen Root, Maurice LaMarche, Jenny McCarthy, John Melendez, Gayle Garfinkle and Rick Jones star in this all-new feature length movie packed with plenty of sex, violence and &^%!#* too extreme for broadcast TV!

They're rude, crude, and thoroughly unrespectable. And now, the crew of the Jupiter 42 is uncensored in Tripping the Rift: The Movie, the first feature-length adventure from the popular Canadian animated series. By "uncensored," the producers mean that the gloves are off in regard to language and sexual innuendo, though nudity remains off the table (a disappointment, one might assume, for admirers of Rift's voluptuous android, Six of Nine, who's voiced by Jenny McCarthy). And the added level of raunch does boost the level of laughs in this occasionally lightweight story, which has Captain Chode (Stephen Root) and his crew serving as bodyguards for a hideous princess while avoiding a clown-faced robot assassin. The series' penchant for knocking (or paying tribute to) pop-culture touchstones gets a workout here, with nods to Young Frankenstein (the black-and-white animation looks terrific), The Terminator, and even Desperate Housewives. The endless riffing and sophomoric humor wears thin after a while, but series fans should find it all to their liking. The DVD includes a brief featurette offering interviews with Root, McCarthy, and voice talent Maurice LaMarche and John Melendez, as well as previews for other Anchor Bay titles. --Paul Gaita

2.0 out of 5 stars I wish it had been better April 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I like Sci Fi. I Like animation. I like low-brow comedy. This should have been a movie I loved, right? Eh.

First, the writing was poor. The vast majority of the jokes were predictable, hackneyed, and cliche. There was a loose plot line, which went mostly out the window for the major subplots. The subplots were basically three movie/tv parodies loosely scrapped together without much coherence.

Of course, the box makes a big to-do over the fact that this is an unrated filth-fest. What they mean by this is that there is a lot of gratuitous swearing. I mean gratuitous in the real sense of the word - swearing for no apparent reason.

I'm no prude but the swearing seemed to be shoehorned into the dialogue to provide shock value (which it didn't). How many times can you hear a character slap the f-word in front of the subject of his sentence before it becomes boring? Well, you're going to get that a lot. A good comedy writer could have a field day with flinging insults between characters, which makes it disappointing when they mostly fling standard expletives at each other.

The comedic timing is way off (mostly too slow), and the dialogue seems cobbled together. I'm guessing the voice actors each recorded their lines separately and the sound editor did what he could to put them together.

The CG animation is good and visually very interesting.

The "star studded" voice cast includes "stuttering" John Melendez and Jenny McCarthy.

The DVD extra is "Making of Tripping the Rift". This is nothing more than a couple of very short interviews with the voice actors.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really Bad, and I'm a FAN! April 25, 2008
Ok, I've been a big fan of Tripping the Rift since it was first showed on Sci-fi. i own all seasons and watch them about once a month or every two months or so. It's just one of the great shows that you can watch repeatedly. I saw this in the store yesterday and figured that it had to be good. Well, I was severely wrong. First off, they did even have the same people doing some of the voices so that immediately messed up the flow of things. If you've ever watched the show, Carmen Electra does the voice of Six, well, Jenny McCarthy does the voice in this one and I think the writers and producers knew that it wasn't going to fly so Six says like 5 or 6 sentences the entire movie. If you're a fan, you know she talks almost as much as Chode. Another thing they really did poor with was time filling. I think to make it a movie, they just combined 3 episodes into one, 3 poorly written episodes at that. It was such a bad movie, it couldn't hold mine or my wifes attention. I actually almost fell asleep watching this, and it was 6 o'clock in the afternoon! The next thing they did bad was language. I'd expect curse words from this show, if I don't get them I'm mad! :) Well, they went too far in this movie. I use certain words all the time so I have no problem with language, but this was done so poorly that it just wasn't funny or attention getting. I think, to push the barrier of what they could do, the writers had Chode saying a curse word as every other word in his sentences. Basically, rather than saying, "Holy S***! That's F****** HUGE!", he would say something like, "G**D*** That's a F****** Huge A** Son-of-a-***** F******* Thing right F******* There!". The use of curse words was soooooo poor that you couldn't understand what they were saying half the time. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun enough for what it is April 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Canadian-made television series used to be shown on Sci Fi Network in America, but it doesn't seem to be shown any more. This "movie" (quotation marks explained later) follows Chode, horny purple amoeba-head and the crew of the Jupiter 42 as they try to escape the Arnie 1000 an indestructible robot assassin set on their tail by the disgruntled parents of Babette...see Chode supposedly impregnated Babette and her parents send the Arnie 1000 back from the future to kill Chode before the coupling occurs...really it's just an excuse for a lot of dick and boob jokes, sexual innuendo and some entertainment industry satire AND a whole lotta bad language.

And for what it is, it's really rather good. The animation is well done. The voice acting is good. And there are a lot of larfs...some of the humor might not wear well as time goes on--come on, most of the world is trying to forget "Apocolypto." But it's fun...Parodies of Desperate Housewives, T2, Young Frankenstein (with some of the same jokes), and AVP.

Now for the explanation of the quotes: It's fun...unless you've seen season three. This is actually four episodes of season three strung together (Witness Protection, Skankenstein, Raiders of the Lost Crock of *@#?!, and Chode Eraser). SO, it's a solid rental or a good buy for completists.

Oh, and there is no nudity really...just some scantily cladedness. All privates are kept private.

2.0 out of 5 stars This Is A Movie? April 1, 2008
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I was sincerely disappointed in this "movie." I have seen some episode before on the SciFi Channel and like the voice actors and some of gags, but I found this DVD to be severly lacking. As another reviewer states, it looks to be three episodes from the third season edited together, and not very well at that. And not very interesting episodes either. The quality of the animation seems to have declined and it overall didn't hold my interest well.

Now I truly wanted to like this, being a fan of scifi and, oriented cartoons, but even the gratuitous sexual situations and characters seemed lackluster. I gave it two stars because I am sure there is an audience out there somewhere for this -- it has a few funny moments. Also for the many scifi references made and great voice acting. Six is always fun to look at (pun on the german word for that number). And the sparse behind the scenes extras were mildly interesting. But on a story/quality level it totally lost me. I can't really recommend it.

Will there be boobies?
I don't think so, since according to the review of this "Movie". It is just 4 episodes from season 3 strung together. Since I haven't seen any of season 3, I will probably get it.
