Once a surfer with no goals in life, the death of his best bud caused Shaun (Colin Hanks) to start anew.  Shaun hopes to attend his literary hero's alma mater, Stanford University.  Unfortunately, a dimwitted guidance counselor's error results in the teenager's devastating rejection. 

Shaun's pothead brother, Lance (Jack Black)soon becomes his unlikely ally, and volunteers to drive him to Stanford to meet face-to-face with its dean of admissions.  Upon their arrival faculty members are inadvertently drugged with ecstasy, secretaries seduced, and campus buildings set ablaze.  Whether or not Shaun gains admission to Stanford however, remains to be seen.

Orange County was a box office success, garnering $41 million internationally -- more than double its cost of production.  The picture was nominated for an MTV Movie Award and a Teen Choice Award.
