Synopsis (provided by the distributor): Last night, two party-hearty Dudes had an unbelievably sweet time. Too bad, they can’t remember a thing, including where they parked their car. All they know is there’s a year’s supply of pudding in the fridge, and their girlfriends are ticked at them for trashing their house and forgetting their anniversary. To make up with the girls, the Dudes have to find the anniversary gifts they bought for the occasion. But it won’t be easy—the goodies are in their car. So, the Dudes embark on a mission: retrace their steps to find out what they did last night (and who they did it to), hoping it will lead them to the missing car. Little do the Dudes know, they’re in for the ride of their lives.

This is a very stupid movie! It is very offensive in the way that the 2 main characters talk about women and their “body parts.” I went to see this with my friends and some guys and it was very nasty. Save your money for a better movie! My Ratings: [Extremely Offensive / 1]

Of course, this is a stupid movie. It’s directed towards us teens, I’m sure it’s supposed to be. It’s also definitely a guy movie. The jokes are all stupid, but they made me laugh. It’s not supposed to be a “good movie”, it’s supposed to be something you can go see with your friends and have fun. My Ratings: [Extremely Offensive / 3]

There is something to offend everyone in this movie. Not only was this it extremely offensive, it was also poorly made, written, acted, it was slow, tedious, juvenile and the plot made absolutely no sense. It basically encouraged drug use and included scenes at strip clubs, and a LOT sexual innuendo. I saw this movie with some (non-Christian) friends who were also quite offended by it. It’s a complete waste of time and money, don’t bother seeing it, you will be very disappointed after all the hype that promoted it. I am now stupider for having seen it.

I went and saw this movie with a group of my friends, and I wasn’t surprised when most of the humor in it was just plain stupid, and not even very funny at all. There were a couple of funny parts in the whole movie, but most of the jokes were crude and perverted. There was a lot of sexual innuendo, and nothing in the movie was realistic in the least bit. After the movie was over, all of us agreed it was the stupidest movie we’d ever seen, and I regretted wasting my money on it. My Ratings: [Very Offensive / 1]

The characters were not the only wasted ones involved in this movie. My Ratings: [Extremely Offensive / 1½]

This is the stupidest hyped movie that I have recently seen. It was all a bunch of queer jokes and all about the two guys who were wasted. The plotline doesn’t make ANY sense, and its very confusing to explain. Do NOT, I repeat do NOT waste your money…

The jokes in this movie are what you would expect, kinda crude and rude. The movie making quality was stupid. It is all about stupid teenage guys and what damage they did in one night. The movie is filled with childish things like aliens invading the Earth. If you are a teen then you would probably like it, Adults would definitely not like it. it is a teenage movie and it is extremely stupid. Don’t waste your money on it. My Ratings: [Average / 1½]

Yes, this movie was a little offensive, but that’s not the worst, it had no educational, or spiritual values at ALL. Nowhere to be seen. No matter what age level you are, do NOT, waste your time viewing this movie. :( My Ratings: [Average / 1]

Dude Wheres My Car is one of those teen movies you watch with your pals. The trailer to me and my friends looked promising and funny, but the movie came out dumb and stupid. It was a poor excuse for a movie. The jokes and characters were lame! Not only that I found it offensive. Sex and laungauge was used carelessly. My Ratings: [Very Offensive / 2]

Movie Critics
…Filled with juvenile jokes about large breasts and dim-witted heroes…
—Preview Family Movie and TV Review
…Lots of sexual innuendo (including several references to fellatio) and some passionate kisses (one is between two men, who are doing it as a joke)…
—Kids-in-Mind
…truly abysmal, unfunny piece of trash…
—Tribune-Review of Western Pennsylvania
…I wish I could say something glowing about this mess, and I wish I had an idea of why people are seeing it…
