Bad Trip is an action-packed comedy film from director Erik Fleming that was released in 1999. Best buds Josh (Ethan Suplee) and Sam (Kevin Connelly) are sick of their boring daily life in Washington, D.C and are dying to get out of town in pursuit of a fun mini vacation, so they begin their journey and hit the road on their way to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Unfortunately, on their drive across the country they hit a man who is in fact on the run from the law. This man (Coolio) is an escaped convict running through the backwoods of America from an intense police investigation. Buddies Josh and Sam become guilty by association, and before they have time to process what has just happened, they find themselves being accused of drug dealing by the police. Things get even more interesting when they try to defend themselves from the inaccurate accusations.
