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. Along the way in Paris, they ... Written by
At the end of the deleted scenes/bloopers during the credits, the lead singer of the band playing "Scotty Doesn't Know" screams. The scream is from the end of Howard Dean's famous 2004 campaign speech. See more »

Alec would like to thank his parents for allowing him to watch alot of TV as a child. Also, his beautiful wife and child for all of their love and support, and for coming all the way to Prague to stay for the duration of production, and for having the courage of conviction to know that was a terrible idea and to get the hell out 4 weeks later. David would like to thank his parents despite the fact they still want him to go to medical school. Also, thanks to everyone who came and visited in Prague - the roommates, the comic art guys, the girlfriend, Lampoon folk. It was a crazy long flight, but the visits really helped. Everyone who didn't visit can go to hell. You know who you are. And to Al, Billy and Jim, who taught me how to write. Blame them. Jeff would like to thank his parents for buying all the Cleveland Indians merchandise and for insisting that he thank them in writing. And Alex for all the great music and everything else. He would also like to thank Ted Griffin for watching over his house while he was in Prague, and would now kindly thank him to stop crapping in it daily. The guys would like to thank every single person who worked on the film for helping us make the movie. Also Amici Mei, Casa Blue, Alcohol Bar, the chicken salad at Scandals, and the brownies at Praha Bakeshop. And that terrible 24-hour Czech Burrito place. Additional thanks to the Writers Guild and Directors Guild, for always being there for us. And a very special thanks to Sandy Grushow and Lloyd Braun, without whom none of this would have been possible. See more »
OK, most people will say, it's a comedy, let's rate it low, HELL NO! This is one of these rare good comedy's. Road Trip wasn't as good as this one. Scotty doesn't know is an instant classic. Nice change of scenery for Kristin Kreuk even though she just appears briefly. Scott Mechlowicz continues the good performance he had set in Mean Creek, not to be compared of course, but good performances in both. Michelle Trachtenberg is simply fabulous,she amazes me every time, except in crappy movies like Ice Princess or in "Buffy". She shows she can act in Mysterious skin, but just throws her talent away further down the line. As for the story, it's nothing special, title says it all. The only country they miss is Belgium :). It's a comedy people and yes, it's for teens, not a family movie if you want to hear it. You know what you get when you see it, so stop giving bad reviews about this! Simply amazing comedy if you like these kind of comedy's. And please don't go comparing it to American Pie or something like that. Guess that's all there is to say
