Shaun Brumder is a local surfer kid from Orange County who dreams of going to Stanford to become a writer and to get away from his disfunctional family household. Except Shaun runs into one complication after another starting when his application is rejected after his dim-witted guidance counselor sends the wrong application. So, Shaun goes to great lengths with a little help from his girlfriend Ashley and his drugged-out loser brother Lance to get into Stanford any way they see fit.Written by
The kid talking to Ashley at the party mentions that he got 50 bonus points for his use of the word "mazer" in Scrabble. 50 bonus points are awarded only when a player uses all of their letter tiles in a turn. You have 7 letter tiles per turn, so there is no way he could have received the 50 points under the rules of Scrabble. See more »
I like this movie. Watch it, try it. It's light and refreshing. Hanks is a solid young actor. It has a breezy, west coast feel. I live in New York and it makes me want to move out west to the Left Coast. Just like Tao of Steve. It's kinda hokey and campy and cheesy in some parts. The cinematography is really good. See for your self. It's stunningly photographed. The natural lighting is beautiful. Jack Black is great as always. There's surfing, beautiful California sunshine, beaches, hot young girls, hot older women, nice cars. Coming of age, adult/youth themes. Hanks'girlfriend in the film is a cute redhead.
