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
The original text of the email Scotty receives Mieke actually says: Lieber Scott, Ich war ein sehr trauriges Mädchen, als ich hörte, dass deine Freundin Fiona dir den Laufpass gab. Aber vielleicht ist es so zum Besten. Ich war jedenfalls sehr froh darüber! Ich muss für nächstes Jahr eine grosse Entscheidung treffen. Und da dachte ich, da du ja jetzt keine Freundin mehr hast, könnte ich in die Vereinigten Staaten kommen und wir könnten uns besser kennenlernen. Vielleicht könnten wir ein Treffen arrangieren. Bis Bald, Mieke. Translated, this says: Dear Scott, I was a very sad girl when I heared that your girlfriend Fiona dumped you. But maybe it is for the best. I was glad about it, anyway! I must make a big decision about the next year. And I thought, that since you don't have a girlfriend anymore, that I could come to the United States and we could become better acquainted. Maybe we can arrange a meeting. Until soon, Mieke. See more »
While traveling between Bratislava and Berlin, the line on the table crosses the Black Forest. Since the Black Forest is located at the western border of Germany, they wouldn't come near it. See more »

The opening credits are an animated tongue-in-cheek parody of a boarding pass and safety instructions card of fictional European Airlines. 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.
