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 »

Loved the movie. Got to view it for free over at my military base in Germany. I will see it again and have no problem paying to go see it next time around. The movie was funny, touching as well as relatable. I enjoyed the bond of the men in the movie. I felt connected to them. Each character had painful things going on in their lives, but the strength of friendship along with encouragement to do better and be better was especially nice to see. Too often we see others be encouraged to be hurtful and destructive. You didn't see it here. It was written well. The acting was fantastic. I felt like I was watching friends having a great time. Nothing looked forced.
