After a night they can't remember, comes a day they'll never forget.
Goofs:
Continuity
When Jesse and Chester are taking out the trash in their girlfriends home, Jesse takes off one shoe and Chester takes off one shoe and sock but directly after when they drop the trash, you can see they both have their footwear back on, and in the next shot, when thrown outside their footwear is off again.

Continuity
Jesse's hair when he just woke up, specifically when Gene comes out of the closet.

Crew/Equipment Visible
A cameraman is reflected in the windshield mirror of the car while Chester and Jesse hide from the ostriches.

Revealing Mistakes
When the guys are taking out the 'trash', polystyrene chips can clearly be seen through the white bin bag, showing what the bags are filled with.

Revealing Mistakes
There is a hand putting items in the locker at Captain Stus.

Continuity
When Jesse and Chester are taking out the trash in their girlfriends home, the cap on the top of the white bag bounces away. In the next shot, it glides from the bag.

Continuity
When Chester and Jesse are talking to Zoltan in the barn, the top button on Zoltan's bubble suit is buttoned, unbuttoned, and buttoned again.

Continuity
When Tania the transsexual stripper talks to Jesse and Chester the road in the background is dry, when the cops pull up the ground is wet. It's true that cinematographers love wet roads, but there has been no rain.

Continuity
When Jesse and Chester are speaking with Nelson, Nelson stands up to stop the wind chime. We then see Nelson's dog, Jackal, smoking his pipe, with Nelson sitting down in the background. The following shot shows Nelson standing again.

Continuity
Chester's hair cut changes often throughout the entire movie, sometimes even on cuts in specific scenes.

Audio/Video Mismatch
Durring the scene where Jesse and Chester make out, "The Little Things" by Good Charlotte is played. The subtitles for it reads "dames" while they're actually saying "things".

Continuity
When Mr. Pizzacoli walks into Jesse and Chester's house, out the window there is a driveway, but when they leave their house, there is no driveway. This also happens when the twins come over to break up with them.

Continuity
In the beginning of the movie, the pan of the house shows the lava lamp on. While the camera is on Jesse, the lamp is off, and when it leaves him, the lamp is on again.

Continuity
When Jesse and Chester are taking out the trash in their girlfriends home, Chester takes off his left shoe and sock but then picks up the bottle top with his bare right foot.
Trivia:
When Jesse and Chester are at the geek cult compound, everyone is wearing the same style of black Vans sneakers. This is a reference to the Heaven's Gate cult who all wore the same style purple Nike's.

The film's story came from a rejected live action Beavis and Butt-Head (1993) movie concept in the late-'90s.

The dialect of the Alien Nordic Dude #1 is actually Norwegian. More specific it is a very strong Norwegian/English from the area of Trondheim.

Brent Spiner requested to be uncredited for his role of Pierre. He has since admitted in an interview that it was "arrogant" of him to do so.

The Nordic Alien Dudes #1 and #2 are very similar to Rolf, Egon and Arnold: Soldiers #1, #2 and #3; on the movie Mannequin: On the Move (1991), a movie on which Kristy Swanson also appeared.

Director Danny Leiner has made comments that, despite Leiner's urging, Fabio refused to have a goose hit him in the face as he drove off at the end of his scene (which would have been a reference to an incident where a goose hit Fabio in the face while on a roller-coaster).

Jason Reitman turned down two offers to direct Dude, Where's My Car.

When Ashton Kutcher, first read the script for the film, he almost turned down the role because he found it to be "very stupid." But when he read the "you got a tattoo!" scene, he could not stop laughing and agreed to take on the part.

The "Dude, where's your car?"/"Where's my car, dude?" dialogue is taken from a scene in The Big Lebowski that occurs between John Goodman and Jeff Bridges after they leave the bowling alley.

Seth Rogen auditioned for one of the starring roles.

A sequel titled "Seriously Dude, Where's My Car?" was planned but was never developed and eventually the idea was scrapped.

There are Chinese characters on the sign for the Chinese drive-through restaurant where the woman on the speaker always says, "And then?" The characters, read "hai you ne" in Mandarin, can be translated, "Is there anything else?" Or, as she says, "And then?"

Mark asks Jesse and Chester to email him via his website www.freakincage.com. The web address led to a photo of Mark in his cage. The link is now dead.

The "car" is a Renault 5.

In the original script, the leader of the "hot alien chicks" was supposed to say "blowjobs" instead of "pleasure" when they first confront Jesse and Chester. It was later filmed as "oral pleasure," but was ultimately changed to just "pleasure" to maintain their PG-13 rating. (The footage of the "oral" dialogue is included on the DVD.)
