Drillbit Taylor
Determined not to spend their entire high-school career being tormented by the local bully, three freshmen place an ad in Soldier of Fortune magazine seeking an experienced combat veteran to protect them in this comedy produced by Judd Apatow, penned by Seth Rogen and Kristofor Brown, and starring Owen Wilson. It's their first day of high school, and best friends Ryan (Troy Gentile), Wade (Nate Hartley), and Emmit (David Dorfman) are determined to make the most out of the next four years. Trouble soon arises, however, in the form of sadistic hallway hooligan Filkins (Alex Frost) -- an unrelenting bully who makes it his mission to ensure that these three friends suffer all the way through to their senior year. Desperate to find protection by any means possible, Ryan, Wade, and Emmit place an ad in Soldier of Fortune magazine. While most of the responses they get come from men who are either too experienced or too expensive, one down-on-his-luck mercenary named Drillbit Taylor (Wilson) is right in their price range and eager to help out. Drillbit may be homeless (or, as he likes to call it, "home free"), but he's more than willing to offer these three brave souls the mental and physical training needed to fend off Filkins and get on with their lives. Trouble is, Drillbit isn't quite the fearless freelance soldier he has made himself out to be. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Drillbit Taylor = 3 stars


    "Drillbit Taylor" was a so-so funny film written by Seth Rogen, the writer and star of "Superbad" and produced by Judd Apatow, the famous producer of "Anchorman" and "Knocked Up". The humor was very clean - not as raunchy as Apatow's previous films, "Superbad" and "Knocked Up" - both rated R. This family-like PG-13 rated film is a so-so funny film meaning kind of funny. Although some parts make you laugh out loud, it just sits there on screen, waiting for you to laugh at it. Many teens at the age of the characters would find it enjoyable and funny because they can relate to the conflicts they go through yet adults will not. All in all, "Drillbit" gets 3 out of 5 stars.

    Funny, Crazy, on Point!


    This movie looked great, then I watched it, and it was even better than great. It was funny, it had all the right components of a good comedy. Not to mention, it had a story, an actual plot, which with some of the comedies coming out lately, has left much to be desired for. If you like Owen Wilson, and Judd Apatow's comedy, you will not be disappointed.

    Lot's of Laughs


    Lots of laughs in this raunchy comedy. For some reason this got bad reviews but raunchy comedies usually do. Don't let this discourage you from getting it. If you liked Superbad, you'll like this.
