National Lampoon's Senior Trip is a 1995 comedy film that follows a group of high school seniors from Ohio who embark on a wild road trip to Washington, D.C. The movie stars Matt Frewer as the principal who chaperones the trip, Valerie Mahaffey as the first lady of the United States, and Lawrence Dane as the director of the FBI. The film begins at Booker T. Washington High School in Ohio, where a group of seniors are eagerly awaiting their upcoming graduation. However, in order to graduate, they must pass a mandatory history exam. The school principal, Mr. Todd Moss (Frewer), announces that he will be chaperoning the annual senior trip to Washington, D.C. as a last hurrah before graduation.

The students, who are all a bit off-kilter, are excited for the trip and determined to make the most of it. Among the students is Vern (Jeremy Renner), a slacker who is constantly getting in trouble, and his girlfriend Suzy (Tara Strong), who is determined to keep him out of trouble. There is also Carla (Nicole de Boer), a drama queen who constantly overshadows her friend Lisa (Eleanor O'Brien), a quiet girl with a crush on Vern. Rounding out the group is Dags (Kevin McDonald), a conspiracy theorist who is convinced that the trip is a government conspiracy.

The trip gets off to a rocky start when the principal's car breaks down and they are forced to use a school bus for transportation. On the way to D.C., they encounter various obstacles, including a run-in with a truck full of pigs and a detour to a top-secret government facility that Dags is convinced is part of a grand conspiracy.

Once they finally arrive in D.C., the students are immediately taken with the sights and sounds of the city. They visit famous landmarks like the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, and even sneak into the White House where Suzy has a chance encounter with the first lady (Mahaffey).

As the trip progresses, the group's antics escalate, culminating in a wild party on the steps of the Capitol Building. However, their behavior does not go unnoticed, and the FBI begins to investigate the group, suspecting them of being terrorists.

The final act of the movie follows the group as they try to clear their names and make it back home, all while avoiding the FBI's watchful eye. Along the way, they face various challenges and confrontations, but ultimately manage to make it back to Ohio in one piece.
