10/16/2004: Thought for the Day:
Eurotrip opens by introducing us to the protagonist, Scott Thomas (Scott Mechlowicz, who appears to have learned acting by studying Hayden Christensen's interpretation of Anakin Skywalker), a high school senior who has been corresponding for some time with his electronic pen pal, a German named Mieke (Jessica Boehrs). Somehow, however, despite having engaged in numerous, lengthy e-mail discussions and even possessing a picture of Mieke, Scott doesn't realize he's a she. Sorry to say, but even in a genre where believability is frequently stretched way beyond the breaking point in the service of humor, this is extreme. So, from the beginning, rather than identifying with Scott, we view him with disdain. How could anyone be so stupid???
