The movie stars: Jason Lee, Jesica Ahlberg, and Tony Hale. We’ve added comments from a couple of the critics, below.

Sheila O’Malley at, gave it a mediocre 63 score, saying: “The opening party represents what is best about the movie: it’s pure mayhem and it’s entirely silly.”

Katherine Pushkar over at the New York Daily News, gave it a 60 grade. She said: “Let’s just get it out of the way right now: Reader, I liked it.”

Gary Goldstein from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 50 grade, saying: “Joke-wise, there are several solid laughs (gotta love the “Pink Flamingos” line), but much of the humor underwhelms. A few sensible life lessons are tossed in for good measure.”

Neil Genzlinger from The New York Times, gave it a 50 score. He said: “The film delivers the standard upbeat message about family, along with one particularly outstanding and incongruous cameo that — sorry — won’t be spoiled here.”

Kyle Anderson over at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 42 score, claiming: “The Road Chip fails to even cross to the low bar of Slang & Fart movies — though, in its defense, it’s also barely a movie.”

Tom Russo over at the Boston Globe, gave it a 38 grade. He said: “It just feels misguided, not clever, when John Waters is dragged out for a cameo. That’s when you know the filmmakers must realize how hopelessly they’re caught in a loop-the-loop of punchless comedy.”

Andrew Barker from Variety, gave it a bad 30 score, saying: “A mostly harmless yet plenty rough assemblage of musical numbers and rote chases that barely add up to a movie.”

Michael Rechtshaffen from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 30 grade, saying: “No less noisy, obnoxious or just plain groan-inducing than the previous installments.”

Inkoo Kang from TheWrap, gave it a 20 score. He said: “Failing almost entirely at amusement, “The Road Chip” may be most useful as a lesson for children to be more discerning about their movie choices.”

Lastly, Kyle Smith from the New York Post, gave it the worst “0” score, claiming: “Three talking critters sing, dance and tell jokes, and I really wish they wouldn’t. Their act isn’t just dull — it’s almost as bad as One Direction’s.” Stay tuned.
