  • Call it a weepy for the gay community:The Trip is an oddly marketed, oddly titled romance. Yes, there is a trip, but it takes place during the last 15 minutes of the film and seems almost tangential. show more

  • The story's third-act detour into tragedy is predictable and unwelcome, providing a resolution that is too pat and familiar to be moving. show more

  • Riddled with romantic and political cliches but is often redeemed by the charismatic performances of Braun and Sullivan. show more
