Space is the place as Anchor Bay Entertainment releases the never before seen movie version of the TV show, Tripping the Rift
. The irreverent Sci-Fi Channel series known for wild cutting-edge CGI animation and a lusty sense of humor becomes even bawdier with an unrated full-length feature (including a special "making of" featurette) that will delight fans of this crude cult hit. With the sexy voice of Jenny McCarthy
) along for the latest misguided mission, the DVD lands in one hip package on March 25.
Tripping The Rift: The Movie
is the saga of a bunch of derelict mutant misfits who live, work and play on the starship Jupiter 42, which is controlled by a neurotic A.I. known as Spaceship Bob. Bob's neuroses are kept in check by the verbally abusive pilot T'Nuk while the ship's inner workings are tended by Gus, the melancholy robotic chief engineer. No one's really sure what job is performed by teen slacker Whip, but everyone has a definite idea of sexy android Six's specialties. Captain Chode, a walking purple blob of rancor, hates his crew and they hate him right back.
As Chode and the crew work on their latest money making scheme in the space Princess protection business they are unaware that a cyborg killing machine, know as the "Exterminator," has been sent back in time by the evil Bobo to eliminate their copulating captain, a mission that isn't as easy as it might seem.
With the voice work of McCarthy, Stephen Root
), John Melendez ("Tonight Show"), and the extraordinary mimic Maurice LaMarche ("Pinky and the Brain
") this is easily the most star powered starship in the universe!
