Ohio high school student Scott Thomas is a good student and nice guy - albeit a little predictable - who is about to graduate and go into pre-med. He is unceremoniously dumped by his whorish girlfriend Fiona on graduation day. Among the people he turns to in his hour of despair is his German pen pal, Mike. Scott and Mike seem to have a special connection. After Mike makes advances to Scott now that he and Fiona are not seeing each other, Scott abruptly sends Mike a message saying he never wants to hear from him again. However, Scott learns shorty thereafter that Mike is actually a beautiful girl named Mieke. By this time, Mieke has blocked his messages. Thinking that Mieke is actually who he was meant to be with, Scott, impulsively for a change, decides to go to Berlin to be with her. Along for the ride is Scott's best friend, the girl crazy Cooper Harris. They manage only to get a flight into London, and thus have to make their way from London to Berlin.

As can be seen in the e-mail scene, Mieke's last name is Schmidt. See more »
Almost the whole movie is shot in Prague or other cities in Czech Republic. They filmed almost all locations at famous tourists places, so everyone living in Prague can clearly see it's not Amsterdam, Paris or anything else. See more »

There is a series of silly and slightly tongue-in-cheek thank-yous from various cast and crew to friends and family who visited Prague during the shooting, towards the very end of the credits. See more »
I just saw this at a second run theater and I found it to be very hilarious.
Funniest movie since Road Trip in my opinion.
Scotty's girl dumps him on graduation day, so he decides to find his internet friend in Europe, only to be taken for one heck of a ride. Along for the ride with Scotty are his friend Cooper (who looks and sounds like David Spade) and twins Jenny and Jamie.
The characters are likable, which really helps in this kind of movie.
Some surprise cameos also pop up.
I'll be adding adding this to my DVD collection for sure.
