A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
After being mistaken for terrorists and thrown into Guantánamo Bay, stoners Harold and Kumar escape and return to the U.S., where they proceed to flee across the country with federal agents in hot pursuit.
Ian is a high school senior in suburban Chicago, plagued by being a virgin. Online he's inflated his resume, met Ms. Tasty, and agreed to drive to Knoxville where she promises sex. He steals his homophobic, macho brother's GTO, and, with his two best friends, Lance and Felicia, heads south. Every young woman who meets Lance, including Felicia, is attracted to him, as he practices his aptly learned "Pick-Up Artist" skills. Ian, on the other hand, is a decent guy who wouldn't mind if his friendship with Felicia became a romance. By the time they get to Knoxville, they have encountered a jealous boyfriend, a menacing hitchhiker, jail birds, carjackers, an Amish community, and Ian's better judgment. Written by
I mostly thought that all of the great comedies were done for the year after the summer ended. This summer 2008 was truly a great time for comedy with movies such as Step Brothers, Tropic Thunder, Pineapple Express, etc. My thoughts were changed though when I saw this movie. This was arguably in the same category as those movies. It is easily one of the funniest movies of 2008. It really reminds you of road movies in the late decade such as Road Trip, Euro Trip, etc. and delivers the normal Superbad kind of content. Josh Zuckerman did a really great job in his first starring role that I have seen him in. Seth Green is in this as well and he nearly delivers a ton of laughs in this movie. This is worth it for those who like the usual teen sex kind of comedy.
