Dude, Where's My Car? (2000)



Critic Consensus: The movie isn't funny, the plot is too thin, and the production values feel more like a TV sitcom than a movie.

Movie Info

The startling effects of chemically induced short-term memory loss provide the backdrop for this resinous teen comedy. Jesse (Ashton Kutcher) and Chester (Seann William Scott) are two hard-partying dudes who wake up after a very long night on the town to discover they've forgotten the presents they bought for their girlfriends Wanda (Jennifer Garner) and Wilma (Marla Sokoloff), twins who are more than a bit miffed that the stoners they've come to tolerate appear to have forgotten their … More

Critic Reviews for Dude, Where's My Car?

All Critics (71) | Top Critics (18)

Daft and lovable and even kinda daring, Dude deserves its truly clueless studio's belabored support.

The definition of aiming low is when the John Hughes film you're ripping off is Weird Science.

Gratingly unfunny.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Operates in a limbo between the relentlessly moronic and the legitimately entertaining, while almost solving the vehicular existentialism suggested by its title.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

Brain-cell depleting comedy will appeal to kids.

Common Sense Media

A jaw-dropping intergalactic caper 'comedy' where no less than the fate of the entire universe is at stake.

Audience Reviews for Dude, Where's My Car?


"Dude Where's My Car" suffers from an overdone plot, dumb characters, and a preposterous plot line. Every critic is saying that is is too stupid to be taken seriously, and I have to agree with that, but in reality it does not need to be taken seriously. It is one of the stupidest, dumbest and most provocative comedies I've ever seen, but I just have a blast watching it! It is definitely not good film by any means, but by the end of the day, you will always remember how stupid Sean William Scott and Ashton Kutcher were! "Dude, Where's My Car" is a huge guilty pleasure.

For some reason the "Sweet. What does mine say?" "Dude. What does mine say?" scene has become iconic for my friends and I. That was this movie's only redemption.

Hilarious! 'Dude, What does mine say?' 'Sweet, what does mine say?'
