* LimitedWardrobe: The guys all end up wearing the same clothes for several days due to their luggage being destroyed [[EveryCarIsAPinto in the explosion]]. It's noticeable with Josh, whose sweatshirt gets dirtier and sweatier as the film progresses.



* UnreliableNarrator: The main story is told through the eyes of Barry, a campus tour guide who's [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} not playing with a full deck]]. As such, the story has some highly improbable elements.

Born in the white-hot fury of the late-90's, early 2000's teen-sex-comedy boom, ''Road Trip'' is the story of young Josh Parker and the consequences of one night's craziness. Josh's long-term, long-distance girlfriend Tiffany has got silent on him, and so, believing she is dumping him, he accepts the advances of the beautiful Beth Wagner. The next morning, after Beth has left, Josh's friends E.L., Rubin Carver and Barry Manilow (not ''the'' [[NamesTheSame Barry Manilow]], [[UnfortunateNames mind you]]) come to investigate. Josh reveals that Beth videotaped their amorous adventures, evidence that his friends demand to see. [[UnfortunateItemSwap Of course, the tape sitting on the TV contains a romantic message Josh recorded for Tiffany - the "Beth tape" is in an envelope winging its way to Austin, Texas.]] Right as this realization sinks in, the phone rings - it's Tiffany, apologizing for not answering Josh's calls, as her beloved grandfather just died suddenly. Josh realizes there's only one option: get to Austin before the envelope and prevent Tiffany from ever seeing it.

* FollowingTheLeader: A strange example - this film came only two years after ''OvernightDelivery'' and has an very similar plot, but ''Overnight Delivery'' was a direct-to-video release, hardly a big success. If there were a little less space between them it would be DuelingMovies.

** This was taken to the point of IntelligenceEqualsIsolation, as Rubin also mentions how, until he started smoking pot to mellow himself out, he was the only kid to have panic attacks as a result of the Gulf War.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Rubin's sophisticated calculations for the bridge jump. And it worked out ... kinda.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Rubin's sophisticated calculations for the bridge jump. And it worked out ... kinda. He only predicted that they would make it across, he didn't say anything about the axles breaking or the vehicle exploding after succeeding in the jump.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: It is unlikely a college student would be sending videotapes to his girlfriend by snail mail any more in the days of Skype, smartphone cameras and broadband.
