Plot

Ian Lafferty (Josh Zuckerman) is a shy 18-year-old high school graduate as well as a virgin, and jealous of the success his best friend Lance (Clark Duke) enjoys with women. He is secretly in love with his other childhood friend Felicia (Amanda Crew), who believes their relationship to be platonic. He chats online with "Ms. Tasty" (Katrina Bowden) to practice appearing confident to women, and eventually agrees to meet her in person in Knoxville, Tennessee. Since he lives in Brookfield, Illinois, he steals the extra key to a 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge belonging to his homophobic older brother Rex (James Marsden), and heads out with Lance. When Felicia accompanies them as well, Ian claims that he intends to visit his sick grandmother.

Along the way they endure mishaps, hostile encounters with hitchhikers and state troopers, as well as friendly and even erotic encounters with a group of young Amish engaging in transgressive behavior (according to a popular but distorted notion of the concept of rumspringa). Ian's brother pursues them, and the encounter with Ms. Tasty (and her boyfriend) proves to be a scheme to steal classic muscle cars for a chop shop. Lance ultimately finds happiness with the Amish, Ian finally admits his feelings for and loses his virginity to Felicia, and in a turn of events the highly homophobic Rex admits that he is in fact gay.
