Mack drives an ice cream truck while Jodie is swamped with volunteer work. Daria and Jane have had a fight over Tom, Daria's boyfriend and Jane's ex, causing them to go separate ways for the summer. Jane goes off to an artists' colony where she meets a fellow artist Alison and big-headed instructor Daniel, self-proclaimed genius. Meanwhile Helen volunteers Daria's service at Mr. O'Neill's summer day camp, the It's OK To Cry Corral, with only hoping-to-be-enlightened Mr. DeMartino for company.

In the final scene of the movie Quinn answers a question about the meaning of Manifest Destiny. This is the same question answered by her sister Daria in the first episode of the TV series Daria (1997). See more »

As the credits roll, a photo montage is shown of the "cast" screwing up and goofing around on various takes, including a boom mike hitting Jane, Daria sneaking up and grabbing Daniel's rear, Daria and Tom holding up Daria's front door, Daria pushing Trent's van, and all the artists from the colony sitting around naked.

The movie's commercial-free premiere on MTV included a few minutes of footage that was not shown during subsequent airings (though included in the video/DVD release), including more of Daria and David's initial meeting, an extended opening scene (further illustrating tension between Daria and Jane), and extended camp sequences.

clever, as is anything daria-related. it was nice to finally see daria head out into the dating scene. i think this movie helped to show just why daria and jane are friends, and was hilarious in the process. it's always nice to see MTV do something SMART once and a while. i really didn't see ANY downside to this movie at all- it was even funnier than most episodes. and it gave the daria crew a chance to grow up a little more.
