Meet Jesse (Ashton Kutcher, TV's "That '70's Show") and Chester (Seann William Scott, American Pie), two dimwitted yet lovable party animals who wake up one morning with a burning question: Dude, Where's My Car? Their only clues are a matchbook cover from Kitty Kat strip club and a year's supply of pudding in the fridge. As they retrace their steps, these dudes are in for the ride of their lives, encountering hot alien chicks, dodging killer ostriches, and trying to score "special treats" from their ticked-off twin girlfriends. It's an outrageously sweeeeeet comedy adventure that's "totally entertaining all the way through... totally!"

Daft and lovable and even kinda daring, Dude deserves its truly clueless studio's belabored support.
Following these two clumsy, unpretentious doofuses as they jump from one brisk gag to another is a gentle, cozy experience, especially if you compare these harmless vignettes to the brutal and vitriolic spirit of, say, a comedy by the Farrelly brothers.
I was embarrassed that I enjoyed a movie so juvenile and stupid. But then I thought, 'Dude!' and I was OK.
Pic is transparently thin -- even at just 83 minutes, it feels desperately padded -- but fitfully amusing.
