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…
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.
(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.
(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.
I quote this movie at least twice everyday of my life.
Cheaply made Road/Euro Trip knock-off and not very funny. The guys that made it seem to think they're Trey Parker and Matt Stone...they're not. Not a bad young cast.
This film best recommended to watch with your cool buddies with some chill beers on weekend. It's an UNRATED teen sex comedy - what you gonna expect more?
A true surprise among the fuming cesspool that is the teen-sex-comedy subgenre. At one point Clark Duke had a streak of about 8 lines in a row that made me laugh.
About what I expected. Surprisingly coherent.
Nota = 5,5
The things some dudes will do for a piece of pussy. I tell ya... But yeah, this movie is pretty funny or at least I've thought so a time or two upon watching it. James Marsden is the best part though, one funny guy.
Cheesy comedy but it has some good moments in it if you can bear it.
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…
