Dude Where’s My Car?

                This movie was funny; I’ll give you that. It was not the most intelligent movie in the world but what do you expect from a film of such a title and starring Ashton Kutcher and Sean William Scott. Like a said before it is funny and that is the point of a comedy.

The plot is fairly simple. The two main characters wake up from a day of getting wasted and cant find their car. The titular line as actually spoken about five minutes into the movie. It is funny then and funny now and is guaranteed to make you chuckle. The rest of the movie is like a comedic mystery. Jesse and Chester have to track down their missing car through the clues that are represented to them. 

The acting in this movie was good. The pace was consistent and the storyline well written. This movie is not an intellectual find nor should it be. It is a lighthearted comedy and tickles your funny bone often. I am the toughest of critics on comedies and I laughed consistently throughout this film. 

               This is definitely what my father would call a “leave your, brain at the box office” movie. You don’t want your brain to interfere from the good time you will have when seeing this film. It is only 83 minutes long funny the entire way. Believe or not however it does have a plot. I found it on free On Demand. I suggest your rent it from your local video store or add it to your Netflix queue as soon as possible. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                       Grade B+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
