Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott star in this totally hilarious comedy as Jesse and Chester, two party animals who wake up one morning to find Jesse’s car is gone – as is their memory of what happened the night before. As they retrace their steps, they encounter hot alien chicks, dodge killer ostriches, and try to calm their annoyed girlfriends in this outrageously sweeeet comedy adventure.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

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.

Comedies have survived with looser scenarios, but few prove as brain-dead as this one.

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

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

Dumb, dated comedy has drinking, cursing, sex.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dude, Where's My Car is a 2000 "stoner comedy" in which Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott play slackers with no recollection of what they did the night before. The female characters are all either bubbleheads, strippers, or women who otherwise openly exploit their sexuality. Black and Asian characters are stereotypically depicted. A stripper is revealed to be a transsexual -- is jokingly called a "gender-challenged male." An old lady uses "f--k" in one scene. We also hear "bitch," "f-g," "pissed," "crap," and "damn." While it's not actually depicted, Jesse and Chester's regular use of alcohol and drugs is a pivotal part of the plot. They also steal the pizzas they're supposed to be delivering for their job. Jesse and Chester visit a strip bar where one of the girls talks about a lap dance they shared the previous night. Jesse gets to place his hand on a woman's bosom, and there's sexual innuendo throughout. Cartoonish beatings are delivered by a group of bad guys. Jesse and Chester bean their captors with a fire extinguisher. Attempts at physical humor center on visually impaired tweens playing T-ball.
