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.
Olvidaba que este tipo de films me entretienen mucho, de hecho mi favorita de este estilo era SuperCool , pero SexDrive me hizo reír el doble.
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.…
Had its moments, but ultimately just a middle of road teen sex comedy.
Way too long also. No way did this need to be over 90 minutes.
As I've seen the theatrical cut before - albeit a while ago - I decided to opt for the unrated version tonight. In my humble opinion no comedy should run longer than 100minutes, so at 130 Sex Drive really outstays its welcome. Still, there is a notice at the start of the film stating that this cut is for fans and you should probably stick with the theatrical version - so I probably should have expected a fair bit of nonsense.
To be fair, I found the idea behind this cut quite interesting. It's clear from the start that the directors aren't taking themselves (or the film) too seriously, and some of the newer recurring bits worked quite well. Admittedly…
One of those stupid road trip comedies. But it's actually funny. And the director's cut is absurdly hilarious. Seriously, check out the director's cut.
i needed a distraction tonight. unfortunately i got sexist, homophobic rubbish instead :(
David Stratton gave this film a good review.
This was far better than I anticipated. It's totally clichéd and predictable, but it was consistently funny and the cast was great. The main trio have good chemistry, Marsden is hilarious, and Seth Green as a passive aggressive amish man is something I enjoyed far more than I expected.
Nothing about this movie is great, but for a film in the oversaturated, post-American Pie, 2000s era coming of age genre, it's a solid entry. In fact, I feel like I shouldn't give it 4 stars, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, so what the hell.
unrated cut. man marsden is fucking incredible in this
I don't think I've ever seen this cut before. It's pretty similar to the unrated cut but with a couple of scenes shortened and less random nudity. I still kinda prefer the Unrated Version because the running through the cornfield is funnier and a couple of the weird loops and ad libs are pretty great. Still this one has the likable characters and the core story so it's still really enjoyable.
You'll really believe that James Marsden is a total douche in this movie and that Clarke Duke can get any woman that he wants.....and Seth Green is kind of a dick. Any time Amanda Crew shows up on my screen I'm a pretty happy camper.
Never heard of this until very recently. Went in blind and had a good time with it. Kind of reminds me of a cross between Trojan War and License to Drive (an all-time favorite)... nothing highbrow here, just silly fun.
I remember really liking this when it came out but it really hasn't held up as well feels very dated at only 8 years old
