Dude, Where's the Humor?
Stoners beware. On the surface, Dude, Where's My Car? seems like the movie for you. It's about two, well, dudes who can't remember last night and have to navigate several bizzaro situations packed with almost-cheesy special effects to get their car back. There are hot chicks, pot-smoking dogs, and aliens. Sounds great, right? Dude, you are horribly, horribly wrong.
Plain and simple, Dude, Where's My Car? is a movie made for stoners by people who aren't stoners, kind of like if a bunch of monkeys got together to make a movie about the Civil War. This movie begs comparison to such classics as Half Baked and the Bill and Ted series, mostly because it blatantly steals from these (much better) films. Any of the original funny parts of this movie where given away in the previews and commercials. Save your nine bucks because you've seen this movie already. Dude, use that money to rent Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and get a snack.
