Brain-cell depleting comedy will appeal to kids.

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

Tone deaf...only slightly better than the worst sitcom you've ever seen.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

...a stoner mystery that recycles tried and occasionally true gags specifically packaged for today's teenage audiences, like the cheerleading squad I was sitting next to.

Dude, Where's My Car? runs a short 83-minutes and yet still feels long.

It succeeds in keeping these sub-literate goobers likable despite their painful incompetence as human beings.

Why is the refrigerator full of pudding? Why is an angry transsexual stripper chasing the boys? Why are their girlfriends so angry? And why did someone at Fox think this sitcom-style material could be developed into a feature film?

...has the advantage of being only eighty-three minutes long and the disadvantage of seeming like an eternity.

Leiner's lame-brained travesty shoots for wacky but instead ends up being intensely irritating.

Laramie Movie Scope

The movie consists of a series of really stupid hit and miss jokes, pratfalls and sight gags. Surprisingly, there are more hits than misses.

To paraphrase Bart Simpson, it achieves the impossible by both sucking and blowing at the same time.

None of the jokes are funny, sex is referred to far too often, and Seann William Scott's acting is beyond the pale.

Even if Dude, Where's My Car? would rate a zero on the Laugh-o-Meter, at least it is a fairly good-spirited and colorful film that produces a few smiles.

Just irredeemably bad. It's not smart, it's not original, it's not charming, and it's certainly not funny.

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.
