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.
Ohio high school student Scott Thomas is a good student and nice guy - albeit a little predictable - who is about to graduate and go into pre-med. He is unceremoniously dumped by his whorish girlfriend Fiona on graduation day. Among the people he turns to in his hour of despair is his German pen pal, Mike. Scott and Mike seem to have a special connection. After Mike makes advances to Scott now that he and Fiona are not seeing each other, Scott abruptly sends Mike a message saying he never wants to hear from him again. However, Scott learns shorty thereafter that Mike is actually a beautiful girl named Mieke. By this time, Mieke has blocked his messages. Thinking that Mieke is actually who he was meant to be with, Scott, impulsively for a change, decides to go to Berlin to be with her. Along for the ride is Scott's best friend, the girl crazy Cooper Harris. They manage only to get a flight into London, and thus have to make their way from London to Berlin. Along the way in Paris, they ...Written by
The book that Scottie is reading on the train and that his mom is reading on the patio is "Sinners" by Jackie Collins. See more »
The writing in Scottie's first e-mail to his pen pal is not the same from one shot to the next. It is improbable that he could have typed it all in such a short period of time. See more »
Congratulations. Hudson High class of 2004!

There is a series of silly and slightly tongue-in-cheek thank-yous from various cast and crew to friends and family who visited Prague during the shooting, towards the very end of the credits. See more »
The unrated DVD version is slightly longer and has a number of scenes which were deleted from the original print. The deleted scenes include:
Scott and Cooper forced to unpack all their clothes from their bags before boarding the plane when the check-in clerk tells them they forgoes their baggage space for the cheap air fare.
A scene of Scott and Cooper playing chess with the Manchester United football hooligans.
A extended scene of Scott and Cooper singing along with the Manchester Hooligans the song 'Morning Train,' on the bus to Paris.
A extended scene in the French restaurant where a waiter gives the group the bill and while Cooper sends the waiter away, they slip out without paying the bill, and the waiter recalls other Americans fleeing without paying.
A train scene where Cooper attempts to photograph his penis with Jamie's camera.
Another train scene set after the gang's escape from the nude beach where Cooper hits on Jenny as she rubs a soda can over her chest. (bits are shown in the closing credits montage)
A scene where the group arrives at the Amsterdam Youth Hostel and are introduced to the owner who describes the place to them (shown in the closing credits montage).
An extended scene of Jenny stripping her top off to get a passing car to pick them up on the German Autobahn (bits are show in the closing credits montage).
An extended scene of Cooper watching a German-language Hapi Djus commercial with two women passionately making out.
A scene of the gang arriving in Rome and arriving at the Summer at Sea office and they meet the same creepy Italian guy from the train whom is the superintendent where they asks him about Mika's whereabouts while a replay of the train scene is set up (seen in the closing credits montage).
An extended scene of Scott and Cooper looking over the Pope's burned brimmed in the Vatican fireplace.
The sex scene between Scott and Mika in the Confessional booth is slightly longer where the woman watches them and runs out to grab her husband to take him into the next booth for sex as well.
An extended scene of Cooper attacking the American Robot Man on the college campus.
Also, a number of scenes were changed including the hot tub scene where Candy and the rest of the girls are topless with none of them wearing bikini tops.
The scene where Bart tells Scott about Mika being a girl has him swearing a lot more.
A more explicit introduction of the Creepy Italian Guy on the train.
A longer nude beach scene.
The scene of the twins kissing is a few seconds longer with more open-tongue action.
I love all types of movies, but I didn't expect to like this one. It looked like another stupid teen comedy to me. I was so surprised at how hilarious this was. I was rolling on the floor laughing my ass off. My new favorite song is "Scotty Doesn't Know!" And while this movie doesn't properly represent Europe and it's style and it's culture, it does enlist every stereotype Americans have about Europeans, and that's what makes it so damn funny. This movie is definitely one of my new favorites, and is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. If you just want to laugh at everything that's wrong with the world, then this is totally something you need to see.
