Trivia

Although there is no actual Ithaca University, the writers (Todd Phillips and Scot Armstrong) both are alumni of Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY, and the movie is partly based on their time there. See more »

Goofs

At one point, they are in a Target store in Pennsylvania. There is a clear view of a "Tucker National Bank" ATM machine, a bank with only a few branches, and only in the Atlanta area. See more »

Quotes

Kyle: It's not cheating if you spread peanut butter on your balls and let your dog lick it off.
[Josh, Rubin and E.L. are understandably repulsed]
Kyle: Because it's your dog.
Rubin: Jesus Christ!
Kyle: You know, because it's YOUR dog, get it?
Rubin: Yeah, we've got it.

Alternate Versions

In the TV version, nearly all profanities have been edited out, the naked women in the locker room are now wearing towels (most of the dialogue has been cut as well), and instead of "FUCK OFF", Jacob writes "DIE" on the paper in the office. Curiously though, the blind girl who E.L. steals the school bus from still gives him the middle finger. See more »

Unforgettably crude and unforgettably funny! You will not stop laughing!
17 April 2001 | by mattymatt4everSee all my reviews

How can I explain this movie? IT'S HILARIOUS!! Though you know the plot is no more than a setup for one wacky situation after another, it works and it works great. This comedy pushes the envelope in every aspect, and smiles proudly. Tom Green, who gets a pretty small role, is the scene-stealer. Fans of him will be very impressed. One moment that had me almost on the floor was the French toast scene with SNL regular Horatio Sanz. I don't want to give away any of the comedy, because that would be a sin. Just take my word: You will love this movie! You will not stop laughing! This is one trip worth taking!
