Writers Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer have penned a surprisingly clever screenplay, filled with ribald humor and irreverent, keen-eyed satire. As director, Shaffer keeps the energy level high and the tone so innocently upbeat that material that could easily have become sleazy and smarmy in less gifted hands becomes genuinely hilarious and utterly good-natured in his. Even when a particular scene or joke falls flat, there is always a clever zinger or ingenious comic concept coming right along behind it to keep the film moving steadily along on the right track. And some of the scenes are very funny indeed, with the film, as a whole, providing more hearty belly laughs than almost any comedy in recent memory. Those easily offended by nudity and a casual attitude towards sex may want to take a pass on this film, but the rest of us will find much to laugh at in this broad little romp.
As the New World quartet suddenly let loose on the unsuspecting Old World, Scott Mechlowicz, Jacob Pitts, Michelle Trachtenberg and Travis Wester deliver performances filled with unflagging energy and youthful high spirits. The fun these actors obviously had making the film is visible up there on the screen for all to see, making "Eurotrip," for all its potential crassness, a surprisingly upbeat movie experience.
One could easily damn "Eurotrip" with faint praise by calling it a "guilty pleasure." But that would be demeaning the people who put this very fun movie together. "Eurotrip" is a high-energy, thoroughly entertaining comedy in its own right, one that needs no backhanded compliments or half-hearted apologies to detract from its very genuine virtues.
True to its genre as an example of kind of Jugendfahrenheitverbildungsroman, the film offers excellent glimples into middle americans attitudes towards europeans: England is exemplified by soccer hooligans and Paris is typified by a robot street performer. Only the introduction of a gay Italian seems to cut against accepted archtypes.
But for some reason little snippets of those missing scenes are shown when the credits roll.
WHY??? Why would someone edit the DVD and do that? I loved the original movie but I just want to throw this thing in the trash.
Overall, this movie makes the viewer laugh at the expense of European stereotypes. If you are a fan of the American Pie movies or those of the party-sex movies (Animal House, Porky, Road Trip, etc.) then I would recommend giving this movie a glance. If you liked Road Trip, I think that you will find Eurotrip even funnier. Like most "unrated" DVDs that I have seen I can't saw that the unrated quality adds much to the movie. In terms of female nudity, breasts are numerous (as is expected of these kinds of movies) but there is a little more male nudity than one might expect. If you watch this movie, definately make sure to check out the extra features. Unlike most deleted scence, some of the deleted scenes in this movies are as funny as scenes that made the cut.
