Format: DVD
I have always been a fan of the series but heard nothing of a movie so when I picked it up I was excited to see it. It really was just 3 unrelated story lines one after another. I have heard this is actually 3 unrelated episodes stitched together with a bit of filler.

The jokes are obvious and not all that funny, the story drags on and on and I honestly felt like switching it off after 25 minutes but kept hoping for something to happen.

I dont know why it was called "unrated"... a few F words here and there are the only difference from this just being 3 bad episodes of the tv show.

This is a shameless money grab. It's pieces of 3 totally unrelated episodes which were already aired as a third season, crammed together to make a wholly incoherent movie.
The "uncensored" bits are gratuitous swearing. If you're expecting nudity, expect to be disappointed. There's a bit of skin shown late in the movie, and no, it's not Six.
The problem is the comedy itself doesn't live up to the first 2 seasons, and even those weren't hilarious. If you want a funny, intelligent sci-fi animation series, get Futurama. It's clever and subtle. Everything Tripping the Rift isn't.

I wish it had been better April 23 2008
By J. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product
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.

Really Bad, and I'm a FAN! April 25 2008
By D. J. Moree - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

Overall, this was an abomination and a disgrace to the Tripping the Rift series. The writers of this should be taken out to a field, made to dig a hole, then shot and buried in the hole they dug. I would never recommend this to anyone and really wish I could get my money back. This won't make it from the Tv to my DVD stand it's that bad. I'm giving it away as soon as I can. hopefully someone else will get stuck with it. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, DO NOT BUY!!!!! Save your money for something good!

Fun enough for what it is April 2 2008
By Timothy Capehart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product
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.

This Is A Movie? April 1 2008
By Kort - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product
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, 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.

Sexy, irreverent camp - pure unadulterated fun! April 6 2008
By Jennifer A. Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Take a wild ride with Chode and his cohorts as they trek through the galaxy, bouncing from one mishap to another all while leaving a trail of mayhem and impropriety in their wake.

Fleeing from a murderous clown robot intent on being the instrument of Chode's demise, the troupe first accept what they expect to be a piece of cake mission protecting one ornery princess. That little job quickly proves harder than it sounded, and a simple bodyguard gig turns into something a lot more complicated. Especially when the clown assassin stalking Chode catches up to them...

Our intrepid crew next find themselves smack dab in the middle of the craziest, horniest little neighborhood they ever saw, complete with a gang of sexy housewives all with a penchant for bedding our three-eyed, purple hero.

The gags are lewd and often just plain silly, but TRIPPING THE RIFT: THE MOVIE makes no pretense at anything other than what it is - pure unadulterated camp. Go into this film looking for anything other than a piece of pure sexy fun, and you will be disappointed. Accept it for what it is, and you just may find yourself relaxing and laughing along with the rest of us.

You'll enjoy some twisted spoofs, such as the neighborhood of women that closely resemble a Bizarro-world cast of Desperate Housewives, but the writers of TRIPPING THE RIFT: THE MOVIE never hesitate to take jabs at themselves along with everyone else. Nothing is sacred, and non one is safe from their irreverent humor, much to viewer's delight!

If you are looking for an important movie that will change your life, then you won't want this movie. If you are in the mood for some good-natured camp chock full of bawdy jokes, then you'll want to pop this one in your DVD player right away!
