"[The film] has the overripe, anything-for-a-laugh spirit..."

"[T]he kids' silly antics generate genuine laughs. And that's something to write home about."

"A raucous slice of gross-out picaresque, EUROTRIP is an extremely guilty pleasure."
Poor Scott (Scott Mechlowicz) finds out his girlfriend is cheating on him and then thinks his European pen-pal Mike is trying to start a homosexual affair via e-mail. Once he realizes Mike is actually Mieke, a beautiful German girl, he and his buddy Cooper (Jacob Pitts) take off for Europe on a madcap quest to find her, discovering plenty of raunchy sex along the way. Hooking up with nerdy Jamie (Travis Wester) and his twin sister (Michelle Trachtenberg), they bond with soccer thugs in London, battle mimes in France, eat brownies in Amsterdam, guzzle absinthe in a European dance club, and generally raise mayhem. Gags include a grope-happy train passenger, a child impersonating Hitler, and some near incest. Matt Damon cameos as the punk rocker who belts out the hit song "Scottie Doesn't Know." Lucy Lawless (XENA) is a dominatrix in an Amsterdam sex club. The laughs are well earned and there's plenty of nudity and sex to satisfy the demanding audience for films of this sort (it's directed and produced by the team behind OLD SCHOOL and ROAD TRIP). Best of all are the performances from the four leads, who eschew the usual over-the-top mugging in favor of a more low-key approach to the material.
