Tyrone (Bad Trip)

As best as I can figure this 1999 bomb was repackaged to cash in on the rising stars of Ethan Suplee and Kevin Connoly in 2005. Suplee hit it big in MY NAME IS EARLE (though he was great in AMERICAN HISTORY X) and Connoly broke well in ENTOURAGE and advance buzz has him reaching household name status for his work in the upcoming HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU. This aside, TYRONE is really the Coolio show. He pulls an Eddie Murphy and plays three roles (mind you, one is pretty damn brief) and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he and his crew footed the bill for the whole damn thing. The directors, who are usually production folks, haven't made a film between them since which is more than likely for the best. While there are a few funny bits and a couple of interesting moments there is nothing all that special here. Good if you happen to be a Coolio fan but other than that you can skip this "bad trip".
