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.
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.
Now I truly wanted to like this, being a fan of scifi and, erm...adult 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.

A pale shadow of the internet and TV episodes -- unfunny. Thought I was getting something else -- my bad, should have googled it (Rotten Tomatoes has 37% for audience, no critic... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Walter Peterson
Not what you'd expect for unrated. I love this series, but this movie is garbage. No Six' boobs. Just swearing. Don't waste your money.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
