High school senior Greg Reed (Deon Richmond) has it, fame and girls. Unfortunately for him, it's all in his dreams. "G" spends so much time trippin', on what might happen, that he's about to miss out on what will happen.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Intermittently funny and good-natured, Trippin' won't disappoint its target audience."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"There are stray sparks of satiric wildness shooting out from this preachy teen message movie."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The messages, in other words, are mixed -- which makes them pretty much consistent with the perspective of a hormone-driven 17-year-old boy. Viewed in that context, Trippin' doesn't fall quite so far."
‑ Todd Anthony, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Some funny moments and the likeability of Richmond's character make it a tolerable way to pass time, despite the fact (aside from Richmond's fantasies) we've seen everything here many times before."
‑ Keith Bailey, Radio Times
"The star's winning smile is the only redeeming quality of this atrocious, predictable teen comedy."
‑ Jeanne Aufmuth, Palo Alto Weekly
"A disjointed, lowbrow comedy about a teen coping with his uncertain future through daydreams."
‑ Robert Dominguez, New York Daily News
"The pliant-featured Richmond is an agreeable, comically adept lead."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Swirl together a pious message movie, a silly high-school yuck-fest and a raunchy, booty-shaking comedy, and this picture is the infelicitous result."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"As formulaic as it sounds."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"What might have been funny and endearing is instead just more self-inflicted negative stereotypes and marginalizing images."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"An after-school special posing as Booty Call, stumbling badly over its clunky message-movie scripting."
‑ Rod Dreher, New York Post
"The teen comedy 'Trippin' features a clever technique, but it's trapped inside a stock premise that was exhausted years ago. At best, it would make a nice pilot for a TV sitcom."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"As the credits roll into oblivion, James Thurber's ghost puts out his cigarette. There's another movie he could've written!"
‑ Dayana Stetco, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"This recklessly constructed mix of social messages, sexual fantasies and street profanity certainly won't be accused of trying to preach to the choir."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"A few of the daydream sequences are uproarious, but Trippin' tries to get real too late in the game."
‑ Tom Meek, Boston Phoenix
