On Facebook last night, I discovered a picture that was relentlessly amusing. It read 'replace one word in a movie…
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.
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…
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.
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.
Still one of the best stoner, hangover movies and has that great '90's feel to it. Great laughs and one of the most quotable movies out there. If you haven't seen this you are missing out on a little thing called...fun.
A truly special level of God-fucking awful.
I've only ever given out the half star review four times, and I came dangerously close to making it an even five. That's how terrible this movie is.
Randomly what the fuck
Stupid beyond words, and only occasionally endearingly so.
This movie wasn't all that good to be honest. Really not that funny, and the character Chester was furiously annoying. Ashton Kutcher was definitely the best thing about this movie. it was Adam Sandler bad, I didn't cringe or face palm every time a joke was made, I just didn't really laugh. A few times during the movie I did laugh out loud to myself but that was pretty much it. The movie had a good idea to it, and had the potential was there, but the actors just weren't good and the jokes delivered by anyone other that Ashton weren't good. The script could have definitely used some work, but all in all, it was a decent movie.
The title alone pushed me to see this film on opening night. I remember annoying the crap out of my friends requiring them to go because "The film is called 'Dude, Where's my Car?" Bad film.
More misogynistic/homophobic/transphobic/racist/ableist than I had previously remembered.
Remember when this came out and loads friends saw it but for some reason I didn't. Always meant to though, despite it's relatively poor rep. Then recently it's in the 'classic scene' column in Empire.. and it's in Poundland. So...
Daft as anything, but I'm hungover and there's some pretty good gags, the tattoo bit being the standout. Incidentally that was the part Empire saw fit to describe as 'classic'.. So there you go, eh.

There's lots of reasons to watch films in conjunction (mood, setting, characters, filmmakers, genre, period), but one that is often…
