Dude (2018) Plot
Alright, gather ’round ’cause I got a wild tale to share with y’all. So, we got these awesome dudes named Lily, Chloe, Amelia, and Rebecca, and they’re all pumped for junior prom, man!
Chloe’s got this badass brother, Thomas, who takes Lily out to the field, you know? Lily’s all like, “Dude, I can’t even imagine leaving this moment!” They’re so close to locking lips when Rebecca and the gang show up, shouting that their limo has arrived. Talk about timing, bro!
Lily drives Rebecca and Amelia home, but she takes Chloe on a trip to the mountains to meet Thomas. Unfortunately, things take a tragic turn, dude. Thomas gets into a car crash on the way back and, you won’t believe it, he doesn’t make it. It’s a total gut punch, bro. At the funeral, Chloe hugs her mom, bawling her eyes out while Lily stays silent, man.
A year later, the girls roll up to school high as kites. Lily chats with Noah about prom, and she and Chloe stroll down the halls, reminiscing about all the crazy times they’ve had, bro.
Lily throws parties at different houses, and when they get back to the car, they spot their trusty “Donkey Bong.” Amelia spills the beans to Rebecca about her parents splitting up, saying they only see her as an extension of their own egos. And then, Lily and Chloe bump into their pot dealer buddy, Biff, who brings back memories of Thomas’s favorite strain, “cough.”
Lily gets into a heated argument with the principal about her strengths and weaknesses. Meanwhile, Chloe heads out to the field, taking a trip down memory lane from the previous year. She plays Thomas’s last voicemail, and Sam consoles her, asking her to prom. Noah tries to serenade Lily with a promposal, but let’s just say it doesn’t go as planned, bro. While Lily and Chloe are talking, Rebecca barges in, dropping the bombshell that she got caught pleasuring herself while thinking about the school librarian, Bemis. Whoa, that’s some serious drama, dude!
The crew heads off to a wild house party, and Noah shows up, apologizing to Lily by offering her a joint. They end up making out, but guess what? The cops show up to crash the party. Bummer, man.
The next day, Lily and Sam sell prom tickets when Lily learns that Liv got traumatized by James, who got her in trouble by slipping a dirty joke into her essay. She gives him a piece of her mind, but then Noah texts her, inviting her over for some fooling around. The next day, Noah’s ex threatens Lily. Drama just keeps on coming, bro!
The gang hits up another party, and Chloe drops a bombshell on Lily. She got accepted to New York University, but she wants to go to the University of California Santa Barbara instead. Lily gets super upset, man, and finds solace in a room with a guy from another school, Mike. But then something terrible happens, dude. Lily gets assaulted, and Chloe, Rebecca, and Amelia ditch her. She calls a taxi, crying all the way home. It’s heart-wrenching, bro.
The next morning, everyone shows up at Lily’s house, but she calls out Amelia and Rebecca for not telling her about Chloe’s acceptance letter. They start badmouthing Lily, and she just walks away. But Chloe stops her, saying she’s being selfish for wanting to cut off friends who didn’t know Thomas like they did. It’s a wake-up call, man.
Angry and hurt, Lily drives down the street, flooded with memories of Thomas. She stops when she spots Rebecca at a coffee shop, making fun of her and her potential roommate until a police officer approaches. Lily’s freaking out, thinking she’s busted, but the officer’s cool. He won’t mess up her life forever, just for a week, he says. Phew!
Lily’s mom forces her to destroy the beloved Donkey Bong, and the girls ignore her calls, leaving her feeling alone. Noah tries to talk to Lily, but she’s stubborn and pushes him away. It’s rough, bro.
But then James helps Lily realize she’s been selfish. At prom, she finds herself alone, hiding in the bathroom, shedding tears. Meanwhile, Rebecca strikes up a conversation with Bemis, and Lily has a flashback of her and Thomas on the field, declaring their love.
Lily apologizes to Chloe for putting so much intensity on Thomas, explaining that the pain won’t ever go away, but she can’t keep mourning what could have been. They reconcile and head inside, where Lily apologizes to Amelia and Rebecca. In a surprising turn of events, Chloe kicks Mike, and Noah’s girlfriend breaks up with him. Sam captures a picture of the girls burying the remains of Donkey Bong with Jon Bong Jovi, Sean Bongery, and Bong Connery. Epic, bro!
Lily practices her graduation speech with her friends, and then she delivers it to the entire school. At their family graduation party, Bemis shows up, introducing himself as “Immanuel.” Noah congratulates Lily on her speech, and they share a passionate kiss. She even takes a photo with her brother and sister. But wait, there’s a twist! Amelia discovers their parents ate the marijuana brownies. Oops! With Los Angeles in the distance, the story comes to a close, dude.
So, there you have it, my American English movie-loving pals. This story is a whirlwind of friendship, tragedy, growth, and forgiveness. It’s got laughter, tears, and some serious life lessons. Stick with these awesome dudes, and you’ll go on a rollercoaster ride of emotions from start to finish.

Dude (2018) Review
Yo, check out this flick, man. It’s a solid one! It’s all about true friends and family, you know? They stick with you through thick and thin, even when you’re acting all rude and stuff. But here’s the thing, dude, the main character didn’t spill the beans about this crazy thing that went down in the bedroom to her friends. I feel like that’s an important conversation to have, you know what I’m saying? Communication is key, bro.
But hey, putting that aside, I gotta give this movie a solid 9.2 out of 10. It’s got heart, it’s got those deep connections, and it’s got some real-life lessons to learn. So grab your popcorn, sit back, and enjoy this flick that reminds us why having true dudes by your side is priceless.
