Joy Ride Review

Joy Ride (2023) Movie reviewOR movie run by Adele Limwritten by Cherry Chevapravatdumrong, Has a Hsiao AND Adele Lim and playing Ashley Park, Sherry Cola, Stephanie Hsu, Sabrina Wu, Timothy Simmons, Nicolas Carella, David Denman, Eni Mumolo, Debbie Fan, Kenneth Liu, Alan Tang, Paul Cheng, Chloe Work, Isla Rose Hall, Belle Zhang AND Lennon Yee.

The new comedy from director Adele Lim, Joy Rideis, at times, wild beyond belief and doesn’t always work perfectly, but it does what it sets out to do, which is fun in a way reminiscent of “R-rated” comedies like bridesmaids. Ashley Park stars in the film as a lawyer named Audrey (Ashley Park), whose less ambitious lifelong friend Lolo (Sherry Cola) is an artist struggling with a slightly wild side. These two characters grew up together and shared some crazy moments, but they’re about to get a lot wilder. Joined by two more colorful characters, Deadeye (Sabrina Wu) and Kat (Stephanie Hsu), these four find themselves in more trouble than shopping when they head to Asia so Audrey can take care of some professional business while trying catch up. her birth mother, if possible.

This film will take time for viewers to warm to its quirky humor, which is a little bit sincere and weird, but, in many cases, quite funny. The real outrage begins in the film in China, when the ladies board a train with a blonde girl on drugs. A lot of them, actually. Kat hilariously puts bags of drugs behind her to hide them from the authorities, while another girl just inhales a bag of drugs. And so on and so forth, drugs are hidden in hilarious ways. Women are still thrown off the train despite having done nothing wrong. They are picked up by Lolo’s basketball buddies, which results in some hysterical sexual situations.

Straight-laced Audrey has a threesome, while Kat tries to keep training despite the fact that the drug she’s been on is making her quite horny. There are plenty of male athletes around to keep the ladies company for a while. Deadeye has short hair and is a bit of an outcast, so she makes some moves with her body to keep herself busy with the boys. The sexually open Lolo also engages in some pleasurable personal activities.

Lolo makes artistic things like little statues of cats sticking their tongues out. She is perverted, but her bond with Audrey has stood the test of time. These two characters respect each other and make the most of bad situations as well as good ones. Joy Ride However, it suffers a bit from the lack of a compelling story, but the film is full of hilarious moments that cater to audiences who like their comedies on the cheesy side.

One hilarious scene has our fantastic four trying to board a jet plane and posing as a rock star band. They dress up, take on stage names and perform in an attempt to make up for the fact that their passports were stolen by the woman who smuggled drugs onto the train that set them off. This “dress up like a rock star” sequence is one of the funniest scenes of the year.

When the film shifts its action to Seoul as Audrey tries to find her mother, it still remains entertaining. While the film may be unpleasant with an abundance of dirty sentimentality, Joy Ride beautifully balances her sentiment with her laughter. A laugh-out-loud moment is discovering what’s going on between Kat’s legs when she accidentally gets them all after trying to board the aforementioned plane.

Ashley Park is a great actress and plays the role of a lawyer who has missed out on many important things in life to focus on her career. Cola is always cute and it’s also fun to watch. Hsu is perfect as Kat, who is still in love with her ex-boyfriend and misses him. Hsu is quickly becoming a star on the rise, and her work here is truly enjoyable. Sabrina Wu’s Deadeye feels realistic and complements the other three females in an interesting way as Deadeye is the complete opposite of our other stars in terms of personality and looks.

Joy Ride it doesn’t pretend to be something it isn’t. The characters here have a wild side and the film allows them to be themselves with their quirks and flaws as obvious to the audience as their strengths. It’s a well-acted film that benefits greatly from some good musical choices and some touching moments when Audrey is left to face the reality of who, exactly, her mother is and where she is now.

You can be emotionally moved by some scenes in it Joy Ride but the film is not very manipulative. He stages his scenes in a way that keeps the film entertaining and enjoyable. All the characters are well written and none of the four leads feel like they got the short end of the stick. All the four lead stars are treated equally by the filmmakers in terms of how they are portrayed on screen. Joy Ride it is not trying to win any awards. It’s just humorous, quirky fun that doesn’t always hit the nail on the head, but keeps the audience invested in its lovable characters throughout. It’s a winner.
