Joy Ride (2023, D: Adele Lim) -- S: Stephanie Hsu, Ashley Park -- P: Rogen, Goldberg





From the producers of Neighbors and the co-screenwriter of Crazy Rich Asians, JOY RIDE stars Ashley Park, Sherry Cola, Oscarģ nominee Stephanie Hsu, and Sabrina Wu. The hilarious and unapologetically explicit story of identity and self-discovery centers on four unlikely friends who embark on a once-in-a-lifetime international adventure. When Audrey’s (Ashley Park) business trip to Asia goes sideways, she enlists the aid of Lolo (Sherry Cola), her irreverent, childhood best friend who also happens to be a hot mess; Kat (Stephanie Hsu), her college friend turned Chinese soap star; and Deadeye (Sabrina Wu), Lolo’s eccentric cousin. Their no-holds-barred, epic experience becomes a journey of bonding, friendship, belonging, and wild debauchery that reveals the universal truth of what it means to know and love who you are. Also starring Ronny Chieng (Crazy Rich Asians), Lori Tan Chinn (Awkwafina is Nora From Queens), David Denman (Greenland), Annie Mumolo (Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar), Desmond Chiam (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Alexander Hodge (Insecure), and Chris Pang (Crazy Rich Asians).







This is from the co-writer of Crazy Rich Asians and the creator of the Awkwafina is Nora from Queens TV series


Pretty funny trailer. Got some laughs. I'll definitely see this.

Apparently this screened at SXSW in Austin and people enjoyed it. Scott Mantz is there and liked it.

I loved Crazy Rich Asians but didn't laugh once during that trailer. I'm gonna pass on this one.

I won't watch anymore trailers for this. Don't want the comedy to be ruined. I already have my ticket reserved for July 5th. I heard the humor in this is pretty filthy. This got a ton of positive buzz from CinemaCon when it screened there recently.

Early screenings for this start tomorrow at 7pm.

I did book a ticket and canceled by screening for the 5th that I initially booked. I'm really excited to see this one.

I run some advanced screenings for a media company in my area. I've seen it twice already. It's a decent movie and the crowd at each screening seemed to enjoy it and laughed quite often during the showings. It isn't one I'd personally pay to see in the theater, but most won't be dissappointed with the movie.

This movie was awesome. So fucking funny. The 4 ladies, especially Ashley Park and Sherry Cola were hilarious. It’s hard R and gets very naughty. There are some wild hijinks. I can’t spoil anything. Stephanie Hsu was also hilarious as one of the supporting characters. Probably my favorite comedy in the last couple of years. The preview showing tonight was loving it. And the best parts weren’t even in the trailer.

Saw an early screening of this film last night.

I haven't laughed this hard at a Studio Comedy in years and will echo much of what you already mentioned.

I'll also add that I was surprised at the amount the script delved into the Asian diaspora, which was very much appreciated.

Why isn't Awkwafina in this?

The movie is sort of overrated. Don't get me wrong, there's a handful of good laughs in this, but there's not a whole lot of story. I actually found the less raunchy NO HARD FEELINGS a better film overall. JOY RIDE is kind of like a female version of THE HANGOVER, but not quite as good. It's more a series of over-the-top skits than an actual movie.

Watched it last Friday. Movie seemed rushed or cut. I wonder if there is a director's cut or "uncensored" edition. Overall a good show.

I saw this today. I am hard on comedies. Being amusing and making me smile does not cut it. This movies is a good comedy. It is funny.

This was fuxking hilarious. From the start. Should have done way better at the box office.

Ashley Park is stunning and that close-up of the putty tat.

As a Taiwanese eating a bowl of Lindor chocolates that my mom gave me, this got a lot of cultural references obviously right.

Cute movie.

Also, Sherry Cola is a great name

I'll pass on the digital. I'll get it when it hits BD. Doubtful this gets a 4K release. Not the kind of movie that needs one.

I was hoping this would be a sleeper hit of the summer. But, I guess this kind of raunchy comedy just doesn't resonate with mass audiences.
