Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this off-the-wall road comedy, John (Ethan Suplee) and Sam (Kevin Connolly) are a pair of close friends who are in need of a vacation, so they hit the road from their hometown of Washington, D.C., to New Orleans, hoping to check out the action at Mardi Gras. Along the way, however, they manage to run over someone with their car; their victim, Tyrone (Coolio), is an escaped convict who dies shortly after the accident. The wreck attracts the attention of the police, and the guys are soon dealing with unfriendly attention from the law, a cadre of drug dealers, and Tyrone's identical triplet brothers, Jerome and Cherone (also played by Coolio). Bad Trip was shot in 1999 under the title Tyrone, but wasn't released until 2005.
