Dude, Where's My Car? (2000) Poster

Trivia

When Ashton Kutcher first read the script for the film, he almost turned down the role because he found it to be "very stupid." However, when he read the "you got a tattoo" scene, he could not stop laughing and agreed to take on the part.
The "Dude, where's your car?"/"Where's my car, dude?" dialogue is taken from a scene in The Big Lebowski that occurs between John Goodman and Jeff Bridges after they leave the bowling alley.
Mark asks Jesse and Chester to email him via his website www.freakincage.com. The web address led to a photo of Mark in his cage. The link is now dead.
There are Chinese characters on the sign for the Chinese drive-through restaurant where the woman on the speaker always says, "And then?" The characters, read "hai you ne" in Mandarin, can be translated, "Is there anything else?" Or, as she says, "And then?"
A sequel titled "Seriously Dude, Where's My Car?" was planned but was never developed and eventually the idea was scrapped.
Seth Rogen auditioned for one of the starring roles.
When Jesse and Chester are at the geek cult compound, everyone is wearing the same style of black Vans sneakers. This is a reference to the Heaven's Gate cult who all wore the same style purple Nike's.
The film's story came from a rejected live action Beavis and Butt-Head (1993) movie concept in the late-'90s.
Brent Spiner requested to be uncredited for his role of Pierre. He has since admitted in an interview that it was "arrogant" of him to do so.
Jason Reitman turned down two offers to direct Dude, Where's My Car.
The dialect of the Alien Nordic Dude #1 is actually Norwegian. More specific it is a very strong Norwegian/English from the area of Trondheim.
The word "car" is said 62 times.
Director Danny Leiner has made comments that, despite Leiner's urging, Fabio refused to have a goose hit him in the face as he drove off at the end of his scene (which would have been a reference to an incident where a goose hit Fabio in the face while on a roller-coaster).

In the original script, the leader of the "hot alien chicks" was supposed to say "blowjobs" instead of "pleasure" when they first confront Jesse and Chester. It was later filmed as "oral pleasure," but was ultimately changed to just "pleasure" to maintain their PG-13 rating. (The footage of the "oral" dialogue is included on the DVD.)
The "car" is a Renault 5.
Mathematicians have worked out that the Continuum Transfunctioner can always be solved in 20 moves or less.

When Pierre asks the stoners "What is the average running speed...of a full-grown male African ostrich?", he is using a variation of Monty Python's famous "What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow" skit from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (1975).

The Nordic Alien Dudes #1 and #2 are very similar to Rolf, Egon and Arnold: Soldiers #1, #2 and #3; on the movie Mannequin: On the Move (1991), a movie on which Kristy Swanson also appeared. There is a mannequin in this movie.

In 2013 the Labour Councillor for Whitby went on UK TV to announce that an Alien once gave him erotic pleasure. It was not about the Continuum Trasfunctioner, though.
