Story: Four college kids from New York head on a weekend “Road Trip” to retrieve a hot video. Josh and Tiffany are in love and are pledged to each other. When the time comes for each to attend college Josh stays in Ithaca, while Tiffany heads to Texas to attend A&M. When Josh makes a hot video of him and Beth, and it accidentally gets mailed to Tiffany, Josh realizes he must retrieve the tape before Tiffany sees it. So, together with E.L, Rubin, and Kyle, they are off on their hilarious “Road Trip” to Texas.

Video: You are presented with an anamorphic widescreen presentation at an aspect ratio of 1:85.1. The color is vibrant and beautiful. No bleeding of colors could be detected.
Extras: Deleted Scenes; Behind the Scenes Featurette - “Ever Been on a Road Trip?”; The Eels Music Video - “Mr. E's Beautiful Blues”; Cast and Crew Bios; Production Notes; and for those that own a DVD-ROM - an Interactive Trivia Game and Screensaver.
Comments: This DVD is available in two versions - an Unrated! Uncensored! version and an R-Rated version. This reviewer has only seen the Unrated version and recommends it highly. Tom Green acts as narrator of this film, but I think it would have been even more fun to see him included as one of the “Road Trip” guys.
