Movie Monday: Eurotrip

In honour of the amazing fabulousness that was Eurovision, there was only one movie I could see fit to watch this week: EUROTRIP. Yes, it's completely and utterly ridiculous, and mostly found entertaining by teenage boys, and filled with some truly terrible acting. But I love it for completely inexplicable reasons.

Reasons why Eurotrip is awesome:
1. Matt Damon cameo of amazingness.
2.The soundtrack. It's fantastic.
3. Vinnie Jones. There are no words for how much I love Vinnie Jones in this movie.
4. The scene on the train with the creepy Italian dude.
5. Lucy Lawless. LOL FOREVER.
6. Insanely awkward break ups.
7. Fighting the robot guy at the Louvre.
8. The best email alert EVER.
9. The opening credits.
10. Bert. He's great.
11. Scotty Doesn't Know.

12. Spontaneous travel plans. They're the best kind of travel plans.
13. The country introduction montages.
14. Soccer hooligans.
Yup, that's Vinnie Jones opening beer bottles with his eye sockets. Also, source.
15. The double decker bus.
16. English swearing.
17. Mieke's little brother. OMG.
Source lost to the depths of Tumblr
18. David Hasselhoff.
19. Cooper's phonecalls with his boss at the law firm.
20. Bratislava and stereotypes of Eastern Europe.
21. Absinth.
22. Hanging out in the Pope's apartment.
23. Scotty as Pope.
24. Employment from Frommer's.
25. The outtakes and additional scenes in the end credits, especially Joanna Lumley.

Plus, the following quotes:
- "This isn't where I parked my car!"
- "I'm never drinking again."
- "Mi scuzi..."
- "Sorry to hear about Fiona. She's a whore."
- "You guys are the worst twins ever."
- "Cooper... Take off the Pope hat..." "Oh, no, it's okay, I'm Catholic!"
- "This is the biggest sausage fest on earth..." "It's the International House of Sausage!"
- "What the hell is that?" "A traveller's moneybelt! Frommer's says as long as you have one of these, no one can rob you of anything!" "Except your dignity..." "No, you just put that in your...wait, what?"
- "Why are you wearing my bathrobe?" "Oh, I'M SORRY. But somebody PISSED all over mine last night!"
- "Dear Mike, greetings from your American pen pal." "Scotty, girl scouts have pen pals. Listen to yourself, all right? You met a "cool guy" on the Internet? This is how these sexual predators work. Next thing you know he's gonna want to arrange a meeting, where he will gas you, stuff you in the back of his van and make a wind chime out of your genitals."
- "Dear sweet mother of God. We're in Eastern Europe..."
- "Oh, Jesus, Jenny. I thought you were some GIRL."
- "Yeah... um, listen. We're trying to get to Berlin, Germany. Do you know if there's a train coming anytime soon?" "Oh yes! Very soon! They are building it now!"
- "You didn't tell your boss you were leaving the country?" "They would have stopped paying me. Seemed easier."
- "Enjoy Bratislava. It's good you came in summer; in winter it can get very depressing."

So. Have you seen it? Did you think it was the dumbest movie ever? Or a secret piece of genius?

  1. I had no idea that Matt Damon made a cameo (I've clearly never seen it).

    1. The first time I saw it, I spent the entire movie going "No, seriously, was that Matt Damon?!?!?!".

  2. So that's where "scotty doesn't know" comes from!

    1. It is!! It's a lot funnier when you know the context around the song.


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
