It was a testament of my boyfriend’s love when he let me watch Dude, Where’s My Car? instead of the Stars game.
I predict that Seann William Scott and Ashton Kutcher will become the Siegfried and Roy of the new millenium. Scott has run the gamut of homo-erotic activities in his short film career, from drinking Jizz Light in American Pie, to discovering the joys of the prostate in Road Trip, culminating in making out with Ashton Kutcher in Dude, Where’s My Car? (Sadly, he was only decapitated in Final Destination – although that scene could be interpreted as a subconscious denial of his own blossoming homosexuality!) Although the jury is still out on Ashton Kutcher’s sexuality, I have my suspicions…I mean, look at that hair!
Seriously though, I was a bit confused by the film. I don’t recall ever seeing the two ‘stoners’ smoke pot. I missed a bit of the beginning of the film, but still – how could these guys be ‘stoners’ if they didn’t smoke pot? Because it’s a PG-13 movie, that’s why!
I was taken completely by surprise by the Alien plot. It was never even alluded to in the commercials. The film gets an extra star for managing to surprise me there.
I swear that I once read a quote by John Waters stating that this film should win an Oscar, but I’ll be damned if I can locate it now.
Let it be known that I did not pay for this film, it was on cable.
