In the Netflix movie Bad Trip, Eric Andre runs into his high-school crush Maria, played by Michaela Conlin, then convinces his best friend Lil Rel Howery to join him on a road trip to New York City in a foolish bid to win her heart. They steal the bright pink car owned by Lil Rel's incarcerated sister, played by Tiffany Haddish, and their journey takes them through loud, ill-fated mishaps at a country bar, a roadside zoo and much more. The twist in Bad Trip is that each scene is also an elaborate prank, blending fiction with reality - with the mayhem taking place as real unsuspecting strangers react.
