Eurotrip (2004) - Synopsis
Have you ever pressed send on an email and immediately wished you could get it back? Scott Thomas and his Berlin-based computer pen pal Mieke have been writing each other for years, sharing every detail of their lives. When Mieke makes a cyber pass at Scott, he completely freaks out, thinking that this guy he’s known for years is coming on to him—in German no less. Too bad that the one detail that Scotty doesn’t seem to know is that, in Germany, Mieke is a girl’s name.
By the time Scott figures out that Mieke is a girl—and a hot one at that—Mieke has cut off her email account and all contact with Scott. Thinking that this might be his one chance at true love—even though he’s never actually met the girl—Scotty and his best friends, Cooper and the twins Jenny and Jamie, embark on a raucous trip across Europe headed for Berlin.
Their trek takes them from London to Paris to Amsterdam and Eastern Europe, exposing them—literally—to every lascivious, larcenous and lecherous indulgence Europe has to offer in a comedy that gives new meaning to the phrase “foreign relations.”
From The Montecito Picture Company, “Eurotrip” is being directed by first-timer Jeff Schaffer from a screenplay that he co-wrote with his longtime writing partners Alec Berg and Dave Mandel. The trio most recently adapted Dr. Seuss’s “The Cat in the Hat.” The film stars Scott Mechlowicz (“Neverland”), Jacob Pitts (“K-19: The Widowmaker), Michelle Trachtenberg (“Buffy, the Vampire Slayer”) and Travis Wester (“Teddy Bear’s Picnic”). Dan Goldberg (“Old School”) and Jackie Marcus are producing the film, with Ivan Reitman (“Ghostbusters”), Tom Pollock (“Road Trip”) and Joe Medjuck (“Evolution”) serving as executive producers.
