☆☆☆☆ Classic

EuroTrip (2004) is a slapstick comedy gem not to be missed.

Directed and written by Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer.

Starring Scott Mechlowicz, Jacob Pitts, Michelle Trachtenberg and Travis Wester.

The story is about four recently graduated high school students from Ohio who leave for a trip through Europe before starting college in the fall. If as a child you enjoyed watching old episodes of The Three Stooges and Benny Hill and laughed yourself silly at their non-stop slapstick comedy then you will thoroughly enjoy Eurotrip.

The scene below is one of many that run the length of the movie and keep you constantly amazed at the ingenuity of each scene and the comedic timing of the actors. Comedy, especially slapstick only works if you surprise the audience with an absurd situation using flawless comedic timing amongst the actors in the scene. The scene below illustrates how funny an absurd situation becomes when you pair it with perfect comic timing. Note how the foreground actors react to each other and to the child imitating Hitler while marching Nazi goose step in the background. Reminds me of scene's from Frank Oz's, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) with Michael Caine, Steve Martin and Glenne Headly.

There are many off the wall situations that will leave you gasping for air. I have showed this little gem of a comedy to many of my Europeans friends and they laugh themselves silly throughout the film. Enjoy!
