He's leaving virgin territory
A high school senior drives cross-country with his best friends to hook up with a babe he met online.
*Review for original theatrical release, not uncut edition.
Sex Drive could have been so much more.
Its not that there is really a great story that was wasted here.
But as far as a raunchy sex comedy aimed at high-schoolers/college, it could have been a whole lot better.
It is never expected for any high school/college comedy to really be something special, especially when they are sex comedies.
But some work. American Pie and its sequals are all good (the first being the best).
Yet, the usually need to have either extremely non stop funny jokes (Superbad),or really likeable characters and interesting story (American Pie).
Sex Drive's main character is an 18 year old senior who is a virgin.
Whoever decided that Clark Duke is charismatic and funny enough to pop up in every teen movie circa 2006-2013 (besides himself and his mother), deserves to be put down. But in this movie he's not only supposed to be charismatic and funny, we're also meant to take him seriously as a cocksman or a womanizer. Or maybe not, I'm sure, this movie doesn't even seem to know.
Imagine if Superbad had been casted by morons, written by a couple of morons, and edited by morons, you'd end up with Sex Drive. Tim Orr continues his streak of being the world's most wildly inconsistent cinematographer, and this ranks among his poorest work yet. My favorite scene is probably where our lead…
(NOTE: This is a review of the extended, and unrated version, and not the original cut, because the original cut isn't even close to being as funny)
There's almost too many 'coming-of-age' and 'teen-sex comedy' clichés present but that's practically unnoticeable being that there's a butt-tonne of unexpected originality, truly great comedic performances, genuinely likable characters, and a charming already nostalgic vibe that felt like John Hughes being sensually raped by Tim & Eric.
The purposefully amateur editing is truly inspired, and the fact that they just left in a few bloopers at random was comically refreshing and made for a distinctly enjoyable experience. James Marsden gives a severely underrated and criminally overlooked comedic performance as Rex, the closeted homosexual douchebag.…
The unrated version of this movie is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in a comedy. If you haven't seen it, I can't recommend it enough. 4/5 for the movie itself; 5/5 for the unrated version. 4.5/5 average.
The unrated version is bizarre. Naked women just walk across the screen and there are bloopers within the main film. But it just makes the film more enjoyable. I was already a big fan of Sex Drive, it may be the usual boy-travels-across-country-to-bang-girl, but they do it with some pretty great material. James Marsden is the highlight as the closeted homophobic brother. I'e watched this several times and i still enjoy it.
Hey, a movie about a kid that wants sex so he goes on a road trip with his buddies to get it from a girl from the Internet. Just like Euro Trip. And Road Trip (sorta).
Seth Green is by far the best part and Cyclops is funny and Andy & Randy are funny, but other than that, this is pretty averagely funny movie. Though, I do respect the extra tits and dicks and farts and stuff in the unrated version.
(This is for the uncut version)
There's countless sex comedies now, Sex Drive not being original or great compared to any of them. You got your usual cliches, typical jokes, unlikable characters, and only a few decent jokes too far apart.
I'd bet anything someone at this film's studio saw Devil's Playground and felt compelled to clumsily graft tasteless Rumspringa jokes onto the first brainless road trip comedy on the submissions stack. Uhhh... success? In all honesty, this is a clear-cut case of "not for me" since I'm well beyond the target age range for this stuff. I just wanted something stupid to watch, got that, laughed a few times (one for each half star!), didn't hate myself afterward, and still come away feeling like I'm not going to remember much of anything about this in a month's time. Which isn't to say this doesn't have something to offer. This will meet the tits quota of any horny teen who somehow…
As far as dumb comedies go, this one is dumb and kinda funny. Seems a little late to the genre party seeing as it came out in 2008, but still enjoyable if you got nothing better to watch. It's a solidly made film as far as that goes, which I have an appreciation for.
Ended up watching the X-Rated version.. classic high school road trip in pursuit of sex movie.. not bad
Comedia vulgar con protagonistas estereotipados y algunos secundarios bastante divertidos como Seth Green, el amish pasivo-agresivo.
Tocaba una americanada, y no me ha decepcionado.
No es que esperase algo novedoso -ya que, como he dicho, es una americanada- pero la historia sí que me ha parecido bastante original y empatiza con el público adolescente bastante mejor que otras entregas del mismo género -aunque su calificación no sea para tan adolescentes.
Además, las risas que me ha causado han sido reales, ya que no ocurre ningún tipo de chiste forzado, todo ocurre de manera natural y te hace pasar un buen rato si pasas por uno de esos días en los que no tienes ganas de ejercitar tus neuronas.
Aun así, solo será un agradable recuerdo de tres estrellas.

Backdating from found movie ticket stub.
Much better and funnier than I remember it being, and for some reason I feel a likeness towards Josh Zuckerman, although I've not seen much of him before apart from in 90210. It has its cringey moments but it avoids going to far. I'd even go as far to say that it has an almost American Pie quality to it, so I wouldn't want to toss it on the pile of crap American teen comedies when there's quite a bit of good about it.
