Storyline

Mark, McGriff and Jason are three high school buddies whose glory days are long gone and are still stuck in their small Pennsylvania hometown. To break free and escape their much too ordinary lives, they embark on a cross-country road trip to the College Football Championship Bowl. The journey takes them through hilarious twists and turns, boozing and misbehaving every step of the way. Throughout the wild adventure, they discover the most important thing in this crazy, uncertain world is friendship. Written by D.B. Sweeney

Trivia

D.B. Sweeney was inspired to make this movie after visiting a friend who was a New York Firefighter that had survived the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Sweeney suggested to his friend that going to see a movie might cheer him up, and the friend replied, "They don't make movies for guys like me anymore." See more »

Goofs

During the discussion of "scrudge" songs, Mark asks what song is after U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name." Billy replies with "Bullet the Blue Sky." The order of the songs suggested does not appear on any official U2 album. On The Joshua Tree album, the song after "Where the Streets Have No Name" is "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." "Bullet the Blue Sky" follows "With or Without You." See more »

Nothing Special
1 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was an all around uninspiring film. It was a non-moving story that definitely does not get you thinking anything other then where is all the strong moving material the other critics say about the film The 3 main actors are good, and there is a few laughs but once again it becomes another movie that you keep watching in hopes of it getting better and it just doesn't. I watched this movie last night and wished that we hadn't wasted our precious time (while baby is sleeping) watching this film.

I plan not to recommend this to my family and friends, as well as obviously anyone looking to rent it. I was pretty much non-impressed with everything about this film.
