This is a very funny irreverent movie. It has several cameos worth note; look for Matt Damon, Manchester football fanatics, a mime, a Nazi and the pope. The cast leads and director of this flick are all newcomers who we'll be seeing a lot off in the future. But exactly what is this movie about? Well besides teenage humor and pranks. It is a love story, a frantic quest to find the ideal girl and an unexpected European vacation.
Have you ever pressed "Send" on an email and immediately wished you could get it back? Scotty Thomas (Scott Mechlowicz) and his Berlin-based computer pen pal Mieke (Jessica Boehrs) have been writing each other for years, sharing every detail of their lives. When Mieke makes a cyber pass at Scotty, he completely freaks out, thinking that this guy he's known for years is coming on to him in German no less. Too bad the one detail Scotty doesn't seem to know is that, in Germany, Mieke is a girl's name.
Their trek takes them from London to Paris to Amsterdam and Eastern Europe, exposing them-literally-to every lascivious, larcenous and lecherous indulgence Europe has to offer, in a comedy that gives new meaning to the phrase "foreign relations."
The film stars Scott Mechlowicz, Michelle Trachtenberg, Jacob Pitts, Travis Wester and Jessica Boehrs, and features cameo appearances by Lucy Lawless and Vinnie Jones, among others.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography David Eggby, Academy Award winning production designer Allan Starski ("Schindler's List"), editor Roger Bondelli, costume designer Vanessa Vogel, and composer James L. Venable. Presented by Dreamworks Pictures.
