Dude, Where's My Car?

Critics 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 anniversary. The presents are in Jesse's car, but they're so fuzzy on the details of the previous 24 hours that they have no idea where they left said automobile. Jesse and Chester set out to find their wheels, and along the way they discover that they had an even more eventful evening than they imagined, as strippers, aliens, a suitcase full of money, and a kitchen full of pudding become important pieces in the puzzle of the missing car. Dude, Where's My Car? also stars Hal Sparks, Kristy Swanson, Kevin Christy, and Fabio; it was written by Philip Stark, previously a writer for the TV series That 70's Show, which also features Kutcher in its cast. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Dude, Where's My Car?

  • Oct 19, 2012
    A worthless, unfunny, ugly, and painfully boring comedy that makes its short running time feel like an eternity. The Chinese restaurant scene is the only highlight. Overall Rating: 11

    Dude, Where's My Car? is a comedy that I just did not enjoy. There were a few good jokes here and there but overall I felt like they could not think of a weaker plot and I even enjoy a stupid comedy once and a while, but there is a limit of how dumb a movie can get. Ashton Kutcher is basically playing his character from That 70's Show (and although I love that show) I would have rather seen a different character. Seann William Scott is just playing his character of Stiffler from American Pie but (if its even possible) this guy is dumber than him. I will say I laughed, but not enough for me to consider this a good comedy, I realize its a cult classic, and that is fine, but its just not my thing.

    Abnormally retarded. It was crass, unfunny, and unbelievably stupid.
