90% Tomatometer 214 Reviews 82% Audience Score 500+ Verified Ratings 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.

Joy Ride (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Wendy Ide Observer (UK) The humour is crude, ribald and deliciously unsavoury – everything you could hope for, in fact. Rated: 4/5 Aug 6, 2023 Full Review Joy Ride (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) Hsu and Cola balance the mania well against Park’s straight woman sincerity, but it’s Wu, a rising star on the standup scene, who serves as Joy Ride’s surprise MVP. Rated: 4/5 Aug 4, 2023 Full Review Joy Ride (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Ty Burr Ty Burr's Watch List (Substack) A lot you’ve seen before but with just enough rude freshness to keep from feeling like a complete retread. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 4, 2023 Full Review Joy Ride (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Dana Barbuto Boston Movie News Prepare to laugh out loud for 95 minutes. Rated: B+ Jul 7, 2024 Full Review Joy Ride (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Charlotte Harrison Charlotte Sometimes Goes to the Movies Epic and no-holds-barred levels of hilarity, whilst also being moving and heartfelt... Mar 27, 2024 Full Review Joy Ride (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Noah Berlatsky Everything is Horrible (Substack) Joy Ride hoots and honks its way to a place a lot more serious than that title suggests. But once it gets there, it doesn’t quite know where to steer. Dec 28, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
