When Don Durkett moves to get close to Shaun while Shaun is seated on the couch, Ashley is on Shaun's right. When the shot switches to show the shot over Shaun's shoulder, Ashley is on his left. The next shot, she's back on his right. See more »
You know how you told me that every night before you go to bed you'd pray that you'd get into Stanford?
Well the other night I prayed for something too.
I prayed... that you wouldn't get into Stanford.
Well I didn't really think it was gonna work!

During the opening credits both the font of the credits and the way they are displayed are similar to that of the output of a typewriter. See more »
When I first saw Orange County as a trailer, I thought it was just another teen movie. So I rented it and was surprised. It actually was pretty good. The movie had big and minor names and a sensible plot. Shaun Brumder was a likeable character and was very much like a modern day Holden Caulfield.It was laugh out loud hilarious with a different kind of comedy because it was ACTUALLY FUNNY.
Overall, Orange County is a great movie if your tired and need a laugh.Or if you're a big fan of Jack Black or Ben Stiller.
