Scott Thomas (Scott Mechlowicz) is a graduating senior in high school with everything going for him in this comedy. But when his girlfriend dumps him on graduation day because he’s too predictable (and she’s been cheating on him), he takes refuge in his best friend, Cooper (Jacob Pitts), and his German pen pal, Mike. Hearing about his awful plight, Mike proposes that they meet. But Scott, worried that Mike’s intentions are sinister, rejects him before realizing that Mike is actually Meike (Jessica Boehrs), a beautiful German girl who is in love with him. Unable to reestablish contact with the offended Meike, Scott and Cooper along with twins Jenny (Michelle Trachtenberg) and Jamie (Travis Wester) fly to Europe. Once there, they must make their way from London to Berlin, via Paris and Amsterdam, and initiate a true-love encounter between Scott and Meike. And on the way, they want to experience all that Europe has to offer.
Eurotrip has virtually no redeeming qualities. A decent love story, amusing plot devices and fair acting are thoroughly destroyed by pervasive sexuality, nudity, offensive language and drunkenness, including an incestuous encounter, sexual torture in an SandM club, fully nude bathers at a French beach, and a graphic sex scene in a confessional. By its end, the film degrades into little more than a series of unrelated crudities, irreverent acts and sexual encounters. Yet it also reminds us that sin, though utterly demeaning to human dignity, is embraced by sinners as though it were a good thing while the righteous are condemned as prudes.
