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.
(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.
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…
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.
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.
A modern sex comedy that a) is actually funny and b) doesn't make me hate all of humanity. This is some rare stuff. Also I am now mildly obsessed with Seth Green getting an Amish spin-off where he wanders around fixing things and banging women.
this movie deserves some love. So much awkward moments that are set up really nicely and overall a cute/ funny story.
Algun gag graciós, però molt lluny de grans pelicules que ens ha deixat la nova comèdia americana.
Some funny gag, but very far from the big movies provided by the new american comedy.
A modern spin on The Sure Thing with all the heart removed and a huge dose of homophobia and lecherous sentimentality tacked on. That said, Marsden is hilarious and Seth Green's sarcastic Amish muscle-car mechanic is a joy to behold. Rumspringa!
To clarify, I originally had up like a two sentence take on this movie back when I first signed up for the site last year and added a bunch of ratings and brief reviews in the span of a few days. As I rewatched this recently I figured it was time for a more proper review. Also, this is the R-rated cut I am talking about, not the absurdist-like unrated cut, which I still haven't watched as of this day.
Above all other genres, comedy is so subjective, and what one will think is gut-busting hilarious someone else will find to be painfully bad and brutally bad. For me, sometimes I enjoy the raunchy vulgar comedies and sometimes I don't.…
Random Netflix choice. Wasn't really disappointed. Seth Green is a saucy Amish guy, so what's not to like?
One of the funniest raunchy teen comedies ever. Why doesn't Summit make more films like this?
Sex Drive isn't laugh out loud funny, but it's entertaining, as cliche as it may be. The best part by far is James Marsden.
