The movie begins with Barry (Tom Green) giving a tour of the University of Ithaca (based on Ithaca College) to some prospective students. The students seem bored and uninterested until Barry starts telling the story of Josh Parker (Breckin Meyer) and Tiffany Henderson (Rachel Blanchard) who were long time friends and high school sweethearts. They'd both had to face a long distance relationship when Josh enrolled at the University of Ithaca and Tiffany enrolled at the University of Austin (based on the University of Texas). They'd made a solemn promise to be true to each other and to call each other every day. At first they keep their word, but then when Tiffany abruptly "goes silent" and doesn't call Josh or answer any of his calls, Josh begins worrying that Tiffany is seeing another guy, especially after Tiffany's defiantly-surly roommate tactlessly suggests that Tiffany probably isn't calling Josh back because she may be "otherwise occupied", and then curtly berates Josh for calling so often, causing his agonized mind to fear that the explanation for Tiffany’s silence is purposely being withheld from him. Josh's suitemate E.L. (Seann William Scott) thinks Josh is crazy for keeping a long-distance relationship with Tiffany and tries to encourage him to go to his party where Beth Wagner (Amy Smart), an Ithaca student who has a crush on Josh, will be. Josh goes to the party where girls are auctioned off to potential mates. Beth urges Josh to outbid Jacob, a devious young teacher's assistant who has an unhealthy obsession with Beth. E.L., who was in charge of the auction and dislikes Jacob, allows Josh to outbid Jacob and win Beth for the night, and the two manage to have sex in Josh's bed and videotape it.
The next morning, Josh's roommates are surprised to see Josh all upbeat, and he tells them about his experience with Beth and wants to show them the videotape. Upon starting to play it, however, Josh is shocked to discover that it's a different videotape --- a caring love-message he had made for Tiffany the day before --- and thus Josh realizes that his roommate, Rubin, accidentally sent the "steamy" tape to Tiffany instead of the one he made for her the previous day. This horrifies Josh, especially when Tiffany subsequently leaves a sorrowful and penitent voicemail for him, explaining that the reason she wasn't calling him was that her grandfather had died unexpectedly.
In order to intercept the tape, Josh, E.L. and Rubin agree to take a road trip to Austin, Texas. They beg their nerdy floormate Kyle to go with them because he's the only one with a roadworthy car.
While on the road, they find what they think is a shortcut near Bedford, PA, but then they discover a collapsed bridge. Despite Kyle's objections, E.L. decides to jump the car over the bridge. They make it across but the wheels fall off, and shortly after getting out of the wrecked car, it explodes, destroying all their belongings. After staying at a nearby hotel, E.L. manages to trick the sightless clerk at a nearby School for the Blind into giving him the keys to the school's bus by telling her that the bus has a flat tire, and then the boys quietly drive off in the bus.
Back in upstate New York, Kyle's strict parents find out that their credit card was maxed out, Kyle's car was destroyed and he is missing from school.
At Ithaca College, Beth asks Barry (the present-day tour guide who is recounting the story to Ithaca's prospective students) where Josh went. Beth is upset when Barry tells her that Josh went to see his girlfriend (Josh had previously told Beth that they'd broken up because at the time he hadn't heard yet that Tiffany's grandfather had died, and so he'd still assumed that Tiffany had abandoned him for another guy). Barry also says that Josh went to "Austin", but Beth doesn't hear him right, and so Beth is left believing that Josh went to Boston. She takes a bus there to inform Tiffany about Josh's infidelity, but having never met Tiffany or even knowing what she looks like, Beth mistakenly approaches a Boston University student who also happens to be named Tiffany Henderson, and sadly informs the student that her boyfriend was cheating on her, only to later be embarrassed when she discovers that the enraged girl is the wrong T
