Head to Head – Dude Where’s My Car?

Welcome to the latest edition of Head to Head, in which our Quickflix critic takes on our readers in a rip-snorting battle to the death! You pick the film, and we pick the fight!

This week, Mark Smaling forgot his funny bone and unleashed a tirade against the stoner comedy Dude Where’s My Car? For his troubles, he scored some free movie tickets! You can win free movie tickets too by sending your mini-reviews to us here at Quickflix!

Mark Smaling will argue AGAINST the film while Quickflix critic Simon Miraudo will argue FOR it. Let us know in the comments section below who you agree with. Spare no vitriol! Choose your side! There can only be one winner!

Mark Smaling – 1/5

After seeing Seann William Scott make many people laugh in the American Pie franchise, I thought his comedic talent would do the same in this awful schlock! Unfortunately, the movie is so bad, the best British comedians wouldn’t have been able to save it. The humour is infantile; I would have loved this movie had I seen it at the age of five. The story never goes anywhere. The script looks like it came from a bunch of drunken frat boys without any training in screenplay writing. It is so bad, my court case against God is still pending. I want him to rotate Earth in reverse for 80 minutes, so I can get that time of my life back. No court on the planet can get him to comply.

Simon Miraudo – 3/5

Damn you readers! You really want me to go to the bat for Dude Where’s My Car? Fine – but surely I get a bit of credit from the get go for even accepting this challenge. Dude Where’s My Car was not one of the big Oscar contenders of the year 2000. And no, it’s not even the best stoner comedy of the past decade (the Harold and Kumar series and Pineapple Express hold those honours). But Dude Where’s My Car is very, very likable, thanks to the amiable performances of its two leads and their charming, undergraduate humour. DWMC managed to squeeze more than a few laughs out of me, not unlike when watching a couple of friends put on a skit at the high school assembly. This may not seem like a lot of praise, but the truth is that Dude Where’s My Car holds a special place in my heart. It should also be noted that I haven’t since this film since I was 12.

Now it’s over to you! What are your thoughts on Dude Where’s My Car? Let us know in the comments section below. If you would like to be featured in the next Head to Head and possibly win some free movie tickets, send your mini-reviews to us here at Quickflix!
