Dude, Where’s My Car?
After a night they can't remember, comes a day they'll never forget.
Jesse and Chester, two bumbling stoners, wake up one morning from a night of partying and cannot remember where they parked their car. They encounter a variety of people while looking for it, including their angry girlfriends, an angry street gang, a transexual stripper, a cult of alien seeking fanatics, and aliens in human form looking for a mystical device that could save or destroy the world.
Colorful, energetic, and unfortunately grating, Danny Leiner's
"Dude, Where's My Car?" is a comedy that quickly wears out its welcome. Its leads, Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott, may be slightly endearing, and the film is not completely devoid of charm; but its blend of stoner-doofus gags and juvenile jokes quickly become mind-numbing.
Following two bumbling buddies who try desperately to find one of the friend's lost vehicles, "Dude, Where's My Car" has a plot that combines inter-galactic travelers, put-upon girlfriends, and Chinese food drive-throughs. A loud, sometimes effective mish-mash of narrative threads and humor, the film has an almost respectable story. That story is, ultimately, too silly to stick, but it provides some legitimately funny moments.
The production is…
In honor of Ashton Kutcher of becoming a father for the first time...I finally watched this comedy. This one has been sitting on my dvd shelf for almost 10 years unwatched since my oldest kid stopped watching it 2004 or so. He always claimed it was a comedy classic....but then again Adam Sandler was his favorite actor too. Movie is about two stoners who partied so hard the night before that they can not remember anything...hey that sounds like The Hangover plot only about 10 years before that box office smash.
Kuthcher and Sean Williams Scott make a good team but the movie goes off the rails when they introduce an alien subplot. A few laughs here and there....but like…
So hopelessly generic and thin that it almost succeeds at becoming a parody of 90's teen comedies. Its funny in an "I can't believe this is as dumb as it sounds" way, comedy so pathetically judged that the "it's so bad it's good" quality almost saves it. Almost. It's one strength is in it's unconventional narrative staging, but even that was bettered by 2009's The Hangover. Watch under some stage of inebriation for best effect.
I have the worst fucking cold in the history of mankind, but for some fucked up reason I enjoy inflicting pain on myself. My sore infected throat just wasn't enough to satisfy that need any longer, so I watched something dumb with Ashton Kutcher. Fuck my life.

Sorry dudes, you DID NOT actually save the universe.
Back in 2000, at the ripe age of 21, I saw this film in the theatre and it was funny and it was a good time. I couldn't see why critics lambasted it as much as they did. Sure it wasn't the greatest piece of cinematic comedy ever released but it was funny and clever enough.
Cut to 2013 and I watched it again on DVD. All I can say now is I must of smoked some crazy shit cause this movie sucks. It's still not 18% bad but it's bad. It's really not that funny (sure a moment or two) and it's really more irritating. The leads are irritating, the story is irritating and the production values are irritating.…
I often have debates with myself whether I love or hate the early 2000's. Dude, Where's My Car? didn't make that debate any easier.
I have never been more silent during a comedy. This movie is an anti-joke.
Dude, where's two hours of my life back brah?
A movie that's as insipid as its title - I can't believe it literally ends on a breast-enlargement gag.
dude, what was this movie?
Starting with an unimaginative opening credit sequence set in outer space featuring a poorly rendered 3D animated bunny (I think?), Dude, Where's My Car? was doomed from the start. I've been on a "so bad it's good" binge lately, watching everything from The Master of Disguise to The Room and I was hoping to see another movie join those ranks. But this film was just lazy, and not an interesting kind of lazy either. Was I supposed to find this main duo endearing? Pitiful? They're apparently stoners, but neither are ever seen smoking, nor do they ever appear to be high. They're just uninteresting, cookie-cutter, horndog protagonists. They're also terrible people to boot, but it's the kind of terrible where…
A movie with strange, anachronistic screwball energies I appreciated, plus requisite early 2000s bro humor (lotta trans and gay panic) that I hadn't had to contend with for a long time and wasn't really prepared for.
We all have movies we love to watch that others might find... well, terrible. These guilty pleasures are films that…
