JOY RIDE (2023) -
Bottom Line: It's funny. Rude, crude but with some heart. A bit over the top to its detriment, but there's a surprisingly moving section towards the end.
Better catch it quick, as it disappointed at the Box Office despite strong reviews.

I went in stone cold to Joy Ride: no expectations, no real idea of what was going to happen (I actually had a notion this would be a horror movie).

Spoiler alert: it's not horror, it's a comedy.

The second half loses some of its oomph, as most comedies do, when they try to inject seriousness and humanity into the story. But, overall, I'd watch this one again. My audience, mostly female as far as I could tell but a range of ages and other demographics, had a good time.
