* BritishFootyTeams: Manchester United is the only one mentioned. Probably the only one that American viewers would be familiar with, but still.

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_eurotrip.png]]

One of the last teen sex comedies to come from the late 1990s, early 2000s boom. Scotty [[ItsNotYouItsMe gets dumped]] by his girlfriend on graduation. He then goes on a trip to Berlin to meet his German pen pal Mi(e)ke (pronounced Mee-kah, a German feminine name ''aus Deutschland'') and declare his everlasting love for her. He is accompanied by his sassy friend Cooper and [[WorstWhateverEver "worst twins ever"]] Jenny and Jamie. There are many wacky cameos, including Creator/MattDamon, Vinne Jones, Creator/LucyLawless, Fred Armisen and the two stars of ''Series/AbsolutelyFabulous''. Also starring Creator/MichelleTrachtenberg.

* HitchhikersLeg: There's a scene in which Jenny tries flashing drivers when attempting to hitchhike. [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight It doesn't work]]. It got deleted in the theatrical release, but [[MissingTrailerScene it was in all the trailers]], on cable, and in the European release of the movie [[HilariousOuttakes and during the credits]], with Jenny actually ''jumping up and down and shouting'' while topless as more drivers go by. (That she has her back to the camera in the process may qualify as more of the film's FanDisservice.)

* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: The exchange rate in Slovakia is taken to ridiculous levels. Scott flips one of the servents an American nickel which he proclaims "A nickel, I'm rich, I quit". One wonders if they have the Slovokian equivalent of millions of dollars in a couple of US Dollars. The rich man, Christoph Jenny meets happens to own the club in Bratislava that they are in. If their pocket change is worth so much it's assumed that this man may be rich enough to buy the entire country.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: PlayedForLaughs. Almost all of it.
** The opening credits show a map of Europe and all of Ireland is covered by the UK flag.
** Played for laughs with Cooper's deplorable ignorance of European geography.
--->'''Cooper:''' Europe is like the size of the Eastwood Mall. We can walk to Berlin from there [London].\\\
'''Cooper:''' Relax, Paris is practically a suburb of Berlin. It's a nothing commute.
** There is one comment about the "island of England."
** They also pass the Black Forest and apparently, Heidelberg on the way from Bratislava to Berlin. Bratislava is ''not'' in France.
** There's also multiple scenes involving the table/condiment "map" set up near the beginning: when they head from Berlin to UsefulNotes/{{Rome}}, it's shown on another table that, were one to line it up with a map, would probably be closer to Russia.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Played for laughs in one quote.
-->'''Cooper:''' This is why [[CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys France]] and [[ThoseWackyNazis Germany]] [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte have]] [[UsefulNotes/{{FrancoPrussianWar}} always]] [[UsefulNotes/{{WorldWarI}} been]] [[UsefulNotes/{{WorldWarII}} allies]].



* BrickJoke: A failed example. Cooper says that in Europe, they have "...lesbians with dildos in orange juice commercials." However, this line was deleted and replaced with just "topless chicks in orange juice commercials", so when Cooper sees an orange juice commercial that does in-fact have lesbians with dildos, it comes off more as a BigLippedAlligatorMoment. The joke's back in the PPV cable and unrated versions.

* BritainIsOnlyLondon: Played straight and subverted. London is the only part of Britain that the characters visit, but a big part of that scene involves them hanging out with a Manchester United fan club ([[CriticalResearchFailure which you aren't that likely to find in London]][[note]]not impossible, but not that likely[[/note]]), so...

* TheCameo: Quite a few, most notably Creator/MattDamon and an uncredited [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Jeffrey]] [[Series/TheLarrySandersShow Tambor]] (they were filming ''Creator/TheBrothersGrimm'' and ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' in Prague at the time and Matt Damon went to college with the producers).

* ExcusePlot: The reason Scotty needs to get to Germany doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Who cares? The film's more like a series of loosely-related sketches anyway.

* FanDisservice: The characters go to a nude beach, expecting to see beautiful naked women. They find hundreds of flabby, ugly male tourists who went to look for beautiful women too (it seems the actual beautiful women only go to the beach when the tourists aren't around).
** Even better: The beautiful women actually hang out around a local landmark that tourists usually avoid due to it being [[{{Irony}} "boring"]], and that one of the main characters had initially suggested visiting, only to be ignored.
** TruthInTelevision as anyone visiting a nudist beach with expectations like these will be disappointed. Naturally, as nudist beaches are not for show purposes, not only the beautiful people go there but all sorts of people, most of whom you really don't want to see naked. It's also true that only foreigners unfamiliar with the concept would have such an idea, for the locals are used to see naked people and don't think of it as extraordinary. Heck, in Europe you'll see topless women even in parks and public swimming pools. And in Orange Juice ads, obviously...
** Jenny taking off her sweater on the nude beach. As attractive as Michelle Trachtenberg is, she's so painfully skinny that her '''''ribs''''' are the first thing you notice.
