Meet Jesse (Ashton Kutcher, TV's "That '70's Show") and Chester (Seann William Scott, American Pie), two dimwitted yet lovable party animals who wake up one morning with a burning question: Dude, Where's My Car? Their only... more » clues are a matchbook cover from Kitty Kat strip club an a year's supply of pudding in the fridge. As they retrace their steps, these dudes are in for the ride of their lives, encountering hot alien chicks, dodging killer ostriches, and trying to score "special treats" from their ticked-off twin girlfriends. It's an outrageously sweeeeeet comedy adventure that's "totally entertaining all the way through... totally!"« less

There really should be a no star option for movies like this. I cannot begin to describe the plot except, dude what was I thinking? There are movies that I could usually unwind with and not have to think too much about, you know the ones for pure entertainment. And then you have this: rubbish. If you are a fan of Kutcher then perhaps this one is for you, but how many times do we have to see Kutcher portray stupidity at its best/worst and not think maybe he is just that. If you have not seen this, spare yourself and spend your time napping or doing something else because it's that bad. Less than memorable movie!!!!

This movie is stupid funny. I liked it but I only watched it once and never again but to me most of it was stupid with a few selected parts that were actually funny.

"Dude, what was I thinking? I totally went against my own personal policy to avoid Ashton Kutcher in all forms. That's bad - but it gets worse. I thought this movie was funny. I actually enjoyed watched this ode to stupidity. Make no mistake about it - Dude, Where's My Car? is as stupid a movie as you could ever dream of. If it's stupid, and someone (probably a stoner) has thought of it, it's in this movie.
Here's the rundown. Jesse (Ashton Kutcher) and Chester (Seann William Scott), two total losers, wake up one morning without any memories of what they did the night before. Obviously, they were wasted - but what else is new? As the day progresses, they discover more and more clues about their wild doings the night before: they partied at their girlfriends' (Marla Sokoloff and a pre-Alias Jennifer Garner) now-thoroughly-trashed house, Jesse got to at least second base with Christie Boner (Kristy Swanson), they spent some quality time down at the Kit Kat Club, and they lost their car. Oh yeah, they also got their hands on some type of powerful alien device, walked off with a suitcase full of money belonging to a gender-challenged stripper, and threw that money around like it was the night before the apocalypse. Now their girlfriends are mad at them, a group of cultist freaks and two sets of aliens are after the alien device, the mixed-up stripper wants her, uh his, money back, and the local tough guys are revving up for an old-fashioned stoner-bashing. All the boys really want is to find their dadgummed car, get the anniversary gifts they assume they bought over to their girlfriends so they can enjoy a special treat, and possibly enjoy the pleasure a group of ugly hot chick aliens promise them in return for the alien device.
Some of the things you'll find in this movie are cultists dressed in bubble wrap spacesuits, two weird Swedish aliens, alien chicks who dress like Robert Palmer dancers, ostriches on the attack, a pot-smoking dog, and of course a fifty-foot tall alien. It really is the most ridiculous script I've ever seen. Dude, Where's My Car? makes the Bill and Ted movies look like installments of Masterpiece Theatre. I really, really wish I could tell you how much I hated the whole movie-watching experience - but, alas, I cannot. It does hurt me to say this, but Dude, Where's My Car? is a funny movie that I, as much as I hate to admit it, actually found quite entertaining."
Dude, what a shibby movie, dude!

"Granted, this movie is dumb. And at first glace, it makes no sense. But that's the whole beauty of it. No one said this movie was, um... thought provoking? Jesse (Ashton Kutcher) and Chester (Seann William Scott), are two dudes with quite a vocabilary (sweet, shibby, and dude). Waking up one moring, they realize they don't remember what happened the night before, but it seems as though they got quite wasted! There's a lifetime supply of pudding in their kitchen, they have tatoos, a stripper (and don't ask if it's male or female- hard to tell!) gave them a suitcase full of money, and their girlfriends ("the twins"- Jennifer Garner and Marla Sokoloff) are pissed at them because they ruined their house and forgot their anniverary. No problem, right? After all, Jesse and Chester got them gifts. They'll just go to Jesse's car and get them. But whoops- where's the car, dude?From then on, Jesse and Chester go on a wild chase after their car, a bunch of space dorks say they have to get the tran--- ("how can we find it if we can't pronoce it?!"), a bunch of "hot chicks", running away from lama's (or are they?), a chinese food take-out troubles.... wow, this movie is f-u-n-n-y! Isn't it?The cast is great- Hal Sparks as Zoltan, Jennifer Garner and Marla Sokoloff as the twins, and Seann William Scott and Ashton Kutcher as Jesse and Chester. The movie also has some great tunes. See this movie if you really want to laugh. See this movie at a party. See this movie with your friends. See this movie if you have a dumb sense of humor (like me). Just see it!"
Dude... Would Like to Thank the Academy

"Ok, let's get this straight. Dude, Where's My Car? isn't shooting for the Academy's appreciation. Other than Battlefield Earth, Dude, Where's My Car? was the most scoffed film of 2000. Is it stupid? Yes. Is it intentional? Absolutely. Seann William Scott brings his bright boy persona along with edgy Ashton Kutcher into the premiss of two very confused individuals who cannot recall where they misplaced their vehicle. After one finally realizes the plot, you too, can comprehend the oft-misunderstood title and how it relates to the plot. All joking aside, the movie moves at a quick pace and has absolutely the funniest supporting cast. Kutcher and Scott are terrific, but the random encounters with other characters are unforgettable. Hal Sparks as a charismatic cult leader is especially funny, as well as his swooning members. There are truly too many to list. I think the definitive moment of Dude, Where's My Car? is the Chinese drive-thru scene. For the unlearned, they drive up and order, only to be answered with "And Then!". Kutcher offers many suggestions, only to be given "And Then!" It's wonderfully repetitive,long,annoying which just gives the scene its hilarity. Also, you can immediately determine in a crowd of several of whom have seen the epic Dude, Where's My Car? by only blurting out loud "AND THEN!" Immediately those who are in your inner circle of friends will burst into laughter and the rest will be quite puzzled. Don't be left out. When your friends are quoting this movie like Billy Madison, you better be well versed on Dude, Where's My Car?"
This movie cracks me up!!

"I loved this movie. I can remember seeing the previews at the theatre and telling myself I had to go see it. I did see it at the theatre...twice. I laughed the entire time. I now of course own the DVD and have seen it an additional 4 or 5 times. I think Seann William Scott (Chester) and Ashton Kutcher (Jesse) make a terrific duo - somewhat like Bill and Ted...who were great as well. Chester and Jesse play off of each other well, which makes the movie work. The entire movie is absolutely nonsensical, which is what makes it fun. For those of you who haven't seen the movie (and you should) I won't ruin the fun of the movie by revealing too many details. It's about two stoners (Jesse and Chester) who wake up one morning not knowing what happened the night before and Jesse can't find his car, thus setting them out on an unexpected journey to locate the car and quite possibly discovering just what happened the night before. It's an absurd adventure where bizarre characters abound and Jesse and Chester discover more than what they bargained for and realize maybe they need to cut down on the shibbying! I recommend this movie just to have some great fun!!"
Light hearted, more than meets the eye

"On first viewing of this movie, I was hit w/ the remarkable blandness of alot of the jokes. It was funny, but it seemed like alot of what I saw was either revisited and rehashed humor, so I left the theater mostly dissatisfied, confused, but all in all 'eh, i didn't expect much, and i laughed a couple of times' sortof mood.However, there's something about the film that the more times I watch, the more I find myself laughing at it, the jokes so ridiculously stupid and forgettable, that I've exactly done that, forgotten them, and a peculiar sense of laughing at something entirely new, yet revisiting an old friend, deja-vu experience happens.Its quite forgettable, yet therein lies its charm, for how many great films can you watch over and over again, yet w/ each viewing, learning the lines by heart you lose the initial impact after each succesive watching.Shimmy becomes an old forgotten friend, that we vaguely remember, but its still nice to visit again. Nostalgia and stupidity all wrapped together in one.I think the actors also pull it off, the remarkably [slow] dialoge was written exactly that, [slow], but done so in a innocent and naive manner. The characters/heros are anti-heros w/out the bitterness or moral uncertainty that most stories of our day and age present. No, you get no cynicism or failing of our human nature, no brooding negativety, or triumphing over the darkness. You have two naive innocents, who jovially bumble thier way through the movie, and its this light-hearted tone of the writing that also welcome repeated viewings. Like old friends, whom you visit, knowing though the conversation will be insipid, will most likely inspire laughter, and someone being dunked into the pool.stupidity? yes. bad writing? I don't think so. If you give the film a chance, and watch it for exactly what it is, it may make you laugh and smile as much as it sets out to. and you may find yourself, like me, revisiting it from time to time, and discovering its hidden charm, and unappreciated brillaince."
