5.0 out of 5 stars a real thrill ride from start to finish (4.5/5) Nov. 2 2007
By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
for me,Joyride is a very good film.it combines elements of suspense,
action and humour skillfully.the story involves Fuller (Steve Zahn)and
Lewis (Paul Walker)Thomas,two brothers on a road trip,who play a cruel
prank on a trucker.so,the trucker decides to get revenge on them and
terrorize them.meanwhile the brothers have picked up Venna(Leelee
Sobieski)who has no idea what she is getting herself in for.However she
soon finds out as she too becomes terrorized by the trucker and will
play an important role in his revenge.basically,what follows is action,
suspense,some humour and some scary moments.this movie is a real nail
biter.the acting is convincing and the film is well paced.i highly
recommend it 4.5/5

2.0 out of 5 stars Just ok July 18 2004
Format:DVD
Since Paul Walker was in it(and I hate his annoying voice and wooden acting) I was expecting this to be a total disaster. To my surprise it wasn't as terrible as I anticipated. Although if you ask me whether it was a good movie, the answer would be no. Paul(and his baby blue eyes) goes on the road trip along with his dimwitted jailbird of a brother and hot(in producer's opinion) chick that he wants desperately. On the way, they decide to play a joke on some trucker who gets pissed off and starts stalking them. Somehow this trucker(whose face we never see) knows everything about them and he appears at the most unexpected moments. Instead of going to the cops, like any normal people, the characters spend the movie trying to run away and outwit this fathom. I thought it was supposed to be suspense thriller but this is definitely "Friday 13th" kind of movie(and I'm not found of those). Paul Walker didn't stink as badly as he did in the "Fast and the Furious", but this LeeLee Sobievski who was playing the "hot" chick is one bad actress(and skanky looking one at that. I suspect the producers had the beer goggles on when she was selected for this role). However, if you compare this film with some of the other crap I've been watching lately, this can almost be called a masterpiece

4.0 out of 5 stars Joy Ride is just plain scary March 22 2004
Format:DVD
We rented this movie on a whim. Didn't expect much, didn't have high expectations, were just hoping it wasn't so bad that we had to turn it off. Although, if I didn't turn off Species II while watching it, I can pretty much watch anything.
So watch it we did. And we were pleasantly horrified.
Joy Ride is about the all American road trip. One brother (Lewis, played by Paul Walker), on his way to pick up a potential future girlfriend (Venna, played by Leelee Sobieski) and thence homeward bound, finds out his older brother (Fuller, played by Steve Zahn) just got "into some trouble." That trouble involves jail time, apparently. But not for very long, because Lewis bails him out.
On the way across the U.S., the two boys get into trouble by pretending they're women on the CB. The brothers go one step further than usual man-boy antics by inviting a lonely trucker over to the hotel room of another jerk who crossed their path.
Hilarity ensues.
Okay, actually, the pissed off trucker, angry that he's not getting laid by "Candycane" rips off the other man's jaw in a rage. He gets points for creativity.
The above summary does not do the movie justice. There's great tension, slow camera pans, and moments of building suspsense -- one of them just focusing on an odd picture on a wall. But we're listening to what's going on BEHIND the wall.
Joy Ride is about anonymity. I relate to the issue because my Master's thesis was about just that: what you do when you're anonymous. It can be empowering when you're the anonymous one, or terrifying when someone anonymous stalks you. And that's exactly what happens in Joy Ride.
Joy Ride has its flaws. The brothers, Fuller specifically, borders on being an unlikable jerk that you begin to hope gets killed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joy Ride Feb. 21 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Exceptionally scary film delivers all around! Steve Zahn and Paul Walker star as two brothers who pull a prank on a highway trucker over their CB radio as Walker pretends to be a woman. But when the joke goes too far and a man is put into a serious coma, the brothers realize that even when they pick up their friend in the mountains, this man will be following, watching their ever move...
All the actors turn in top-notch performances especially Steve Zahn in his first main star role. Marco Beltrami's music score is delightfully exciting and scary, adding tension to even the most calm parts in the film. Directed and photographed beautifully with ominous images of the dark, shadowed stalker and of desolate highways, blending this particular trucker in with the rest, as they all play a game of hide-and-seek.
Overall, this is one of the best thrillers to come along in ages and deserves all the appreciation it can get. The DVD is also highly recommended, though the featurette is actually very "etty" (meaning its very short)! Pulse-pounding entertainment!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Joy to Watch Feb. 10 2004
Format:DVD
With a movie that was originally titled "Squelch," I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Would this be good? Or would this be another campy teen horror flick? This movie is really AWESOME.
This movie stars Paul Walker as Louis and Steve Zahn as his troublemaker brother Fuller. Fuller gets the genius idea to "prank call" someone on a CB radio. Turns out the guy on the other end REALLY hates prank calls. One of the cool things about his movie is that none of these characters have cell phones. I don't have a cell phone because I can't afford one, and it's nice to see that these guys don't have a cell phone simply because they couldn't afford one either.
I was gripping my chair during the chase scenes and freaking out over little things-- like when the truck driver loudly plays a fifties type song on the radio as he's trying to find them in a cornfield.
The alternate endings are especially pleasing. One of which is 29 minutes long (which was the original ending) and MUCH MUCH different than the one used in the movie. There are also three other endings, all fairly similar, but with twists on the same scenario. Another special feature is listening to the other voices that were intended for the truck drivers voice... you'll know why they chose Ted Levine for the voice after you hear the other two.
This a great movie, a fantastic DVD, and just an overall great time to watch. Get ready for the ride of your life!

3.0 out of 5 stars bad ending
This movie is pretty suspenseful, but the last thirty seconds might just be the worst ending in cinima history, or maybe rusty nail has a clone.

This was one suspenseful movie! Two of my friends sat me down to watch this one, and I was very happy with it.
