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 »

Great start to a writing and directing career for D.B. Sweeney
23 October 2007 | by moosecSee all my reviews

A great comedy with a lot of funny scenes delivered by some great actors...John C. McGinley, Ed Harris, D.B....Even a surprise cameo by Chris Chelios for NHL fans! Would have better for the movie if there had been some more money available for the special effects. A great sound track goes along with the movie with songs from Bruce Springsteen and Dire Straits to name a few. A studio needs to pick the movie up and distribute it so the rest of the world can witness the great script writing by Brian Currie and D.B. Sweeney. Can't wait to see what those two can do when they get some real money behind a project. Can you say "And the Oscar goes too..?"
