Jack Black is writer Mike White's next-door neighbor; his part in the movie was written specifically for him. Surprisingly little was improvised. See more »

You know how you told me that every night before you go to bed you'd pray that you'd get into Stanford?
Well the other night I prayed for something too.

Well I didn't really think it was gonna work!

During the opening credits both the font of the credits and the way they are displayed are similar to that of the output of a typewriter. See more »
I must say, I really enjoyed "Orange County." It's not a truly important cinematic masterpiece, but what were you expecting--"Gone With the Wind"? This movie is a lot of fun and I never get sick of it. Jack Black plays the brother absolutely wonderfully. He cracked me up about 90 times throughout the movie.
Overall, a very enjoyable, fun movie. Watch it if you want to kill some time.
