-Amsterdam, motherfucker.


Come on, let's go.

Where are we going?

Red-light district. Time for sneepur.

Let's go to the coffee shop first,

then get some sneepur.

Hey, I think the Anne Frank

house is around here.

Did we come to Europe

just to smoke pot?

I came all the way from Iceland.

-Yeah, what if we did?

-We did that every day in college.

Why not, like, you know,

check out a museum?

No, you're right.

We should go to a museum.

How about the hemp museum?

Oli proudly presents...


She's cute.

But we can't rail a girl

who's in a coma.

I think that's illegal

even in Amsterdam.

-Hey, I'm just warming up, man.

-Fucking Oli.

The Icelandic...

Oh, God, how are you?

You want to get stoned?

-This will wake you up.

-What the f*ck?

This is good Amsterdam shit.

That's the shit right there, dude.

Trust me.


-It's all good, bro.

-Yeah, dude, smoke it!

-Dude, what happened?

-Any Dutch people in Amsterdam?

All right, this is my friend, Josh.

-Well, hello.


-Do you guys want another round?

-Yes, okay.


We will be right back.

-What are you doing?


Do you see a single other person

in here with a fucking fanny pack?

Wait. There's a guy.

Why don't you go have

fanny-pack sex with him...

...and jizz all over each other's

storage compartments?

I can't put my passport in my pocket.

It chafes my thighs, bitch.

-All right?


Where's Oli?

He's fucking genius.

Sneepur alert, 3 o'clock.

-She smokes.

-Dude, it's Europe!

Every fucking chick smokes.

Stop being a pussy.

You are so easy sometimes.

The power of the pack is yours.

I'm out of here.

I'm sorry.

Yeah, I...

No, I don't even speak Dutch.

No, I'm sorry, I...

Get off me, you fucking

faggot-ass elf. F*ck off.

-Hey, what the f*ck?

-Hey. Hey.

Come on, faggot.


-Get your fucking hands off me.

-I'm an American, I got rights.

-Get the f*ck out.

-Your fucking club sucks ass, bro.

-Kiss my American ass, fucker.

-F*ck you.

-Let's get out of here, bro.

Hey, I don't know why

you guys are waiting.

It's a fucking fag fest in there.

Wall-to-wall fucking cock.

You need one of these

to get in, bro. Sorry.

That shit was classic, dude.

He was gonna throw down

with a 400-pound Dutchman.

I'm fucking awesome!

I don't fucking know what...

I thought you were a Jew, man.

This guy's a fucking Israeli!

You are fucking Israeli.

Oh, God, I hope bestiality

is legal in Amsterdam...

...because that girl's a fucking hog.

Look at that, man.

Hey, guys,

I think she likes me, man.

Oh, look at that.

Josh, my gift to you, man.

Thanks, but paying to do whatever

you want to someone isn't a turn-on.

How are you gonna get over your chick

if you don't bang some new pussy?

You can't go home

without getting some hot chick.

I agree, but I shouldn't

have to pay for it.

Hey, come on, I'm paying, man.


Are you okay?

Hello? Hello?

Hey, close the door.

You watch, you pay.

Sorry. Jesus.

You're up, slugger.

Man, I'm fucking... I'm tired, man.

I can, like, barely stand up.

Josh, you want

to be a fucking writer?

How about some life experience,

right there in that room.

-What do we have in here?

-Hey, you watch, you pay.

I pay. I pay, man. Come on.


Come, sit.

Your friends are so funny.


You can wash over here, by sink.

It was fine.

What do you mean? That bitch had

the best fucking tits in Amsterdam.

It was fine. It was whatever.

What was that?

-It's fucking after curfew, man.

-Curfew? What are we, 1 3?

Let us the f*ck in,

we're freezing our balls off.

We paid to stay here.
