TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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 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

Critic Reviews for Dude, Where's My Car?

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (14)

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.

Entertainment Weekly
Top Critic

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

Following these two clumsy, unpretentious doofuses as they jump from one brisk gag to another is a gentle, cozy experience, especially if you compare these harmless vignettes to the brutal and vitriolic spirit of, say, a comedy by the Farrelly brothers.

Top Critic

To call this humor politically incorrect would be to unjustly credit its creators with any sort of ideology that could then be violated.

Audience Reviews for Dude, Where's My Car?

½

"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?'
