Don't' Listen To Critics- Sex Drive Is Top 5 Comedies I've Ever Seen (by goalyguy333)
There are several people who say that critics don't know anything... I find it funny in Hollywood how the best movies get rated terribly, and have a 28% rating on rottentomatoes 'tomatometer'...I saw the preview for Sex Drive on myspace. The preview started off as a typical drive-across-the-country crazy-things-happen teen sex party movie. About halfway into the trailer I found myself laughing... and thinking "wow... something about this movie feels different. I think it's going to be really good. I don't want to wait til October, I want to watch it right <more>
now".THREE WEEKS later three of my friends and I decided to see a last minute movie- I looked up Sex Drive only to find that it was only playing in one theater in our entire city Denver with only one showtime! 10:30 was the only showtime, if this was any indication of how the movie was I figured that it was going to be terrible- but I remembered how much I enjoyed the preview and coerced my friends to go see it. When we arrived the theater had only two other people in it, both middle-aged males sitting separately by themselves. Again- not a good sign...The movie started out, and was instantly funny. We laughed, so did the others. I thought, "ok, any movie can make people laugh... it's not that hard a thing to do... let's see where this goes". The movie continued on, and I found myself loving the plot. Loving the script. Loving the no-name actors. Loving the directing. Loving the editing. Loving everything about it. But that's just me... everyone has different opinions. My three friends who- might I mind you, have very different senses of humor all felt the exact same way. We were crying at certain parts because we were laughing so hard. The other two people in the theater were laughing hysterically as well. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better- the movie turns to a love story, and everything throughout the whole movie comes together.It finally ended, and I, and my three friends, sat there, in awe, about what we just saw. We left the theater and could not have been any happier about our movie choice.I returned home to instantly look up reviews online about what others thought of this movie- and it blew my mind. The most terrible, awful things were said, and the movie's gross domestic total? $8,402,485. A BOMB.I don't understand what it is people are looking for in a comedy. I will agree with others and say- yes, this has been done before. Yes, this movie is exactly what I thought it would be and what I wrote above a typical drive-across-the-country crazy-things-happen teen sex party movie . Yes, this movie is predictable and familiar- but back to the question- what is it people are looking for in a comedy? This movie had every element of the $100,000,000+/movie American Pie series. Sex Drive should of made AT LEAST half that much.I saw College recently- NOW THIS is a movie that deserved it's abysmal earnings of 4.5 million dollars. College's jokes were cheap, and seemingly desperate, as if almost begging for a laugh. And once again- yes, College made me slightly laugh- as I said before any comedy can- but what it did not do was leave me with a feeling of sheer joy and happiness that I took the time out of my night and life to watch it. Sex Drive left me with this feeling.I believed Sex Drive to be perfect. In every aspect. I will address that, again, everyone's taste is different; everyone's brains interpret things differently and because of this not everyone will find Sex Drive to be perfect, in fact some may not find it funny it all- but I believe THE MAJORITY of people 9 out of 10 will realize, upon DVD release and word-of-mouth, that Sex Drive was the sleeper hit of 2008.See this movie. It deserves much more money than it made and is well, well worth your time.
Their isn't a funnier movie than this (by robertallenandersonjr)
Sex Drive was the all-time funniest movie. It was by far the funniest and funnest movie I have seen this year. It ranks right up their with my favorite movies. It was very stupid and had tons of crude humor. It was all done it good taste though. The movie in ways kind of shows you to be yourself but at the same time adventures and fun. You can still be a good kid and be risky and take chances. The actors in the movie did a pretty good job. Considering all of the actors are out of their teens and had to play teenagers in the movie. They did a pretty good job for the most part. the whole movie <more>
has you laughing and nearly falling out of your seat. It started out very funny and kept getting funnier till the very end. It was in ways romantic. The movie doesn't give away anything the whole time. The movie ends well on all levels. It had many different thing in the movie from Amish people to sexy dancers to jail fights. The movie was very immature and had many adult themes. I think that this movie is good for teenagers and some adults who like sexy teen comedies. It was funny and very entertaining the whole time. Go see the movie you will not be disappointed. Im glad I went to see this sneak preview. Overall a very humorous movie with many laughs.
The name "Sex Drive" may awake false expectations for some viewers prior to watching. The movies goes beyond the typical "american-pie-like-comedy-style" and shows a sensitive development of relationships which were not expected at the beginning. These developments are combined with several road-trip experiences and different of course, also sexual experiences during the trip. But the film contains more than that, it has a nice plot, a stringent story and very talented young actors. It is definitely not just a teenage-flick, it is much more. Because despite some laughs, <more>
funny moments "amish" and unexpected action - we experience beautiful acting of Amanda Crew who didn't appear to me that intense in other movies before like Final Destination for example . She does not only look beautiful but acts in a very authentic way, it seems to me like she enjoyed the set, the whole idea of the movie, and the acting in it especially though the film had its rather crude moments at the beginning and in the step-mother appearances .I admit that this was one of the best teenage-road-movies I've seen in the last decade. Not only because it shows the lifestyle everybody would have loved to live in its teenage years, it also features both laughs and unexpected developments in the end, thoughts about the meaning of love and how important it is to trust feelings. A closer look at the character of Ian would have been great because during the whole movie he seemed a bit inapproachable, and we don't get an impression about his development of feelings towards Felicia, only the other way round.Summary: Funny movie with a very nice development in the end, and a fascinating and breath-taking Amanda Crew - worth watching!
Easily, One of the funniest movies of 08'!! (by michael11391)
I loved every minute of this movie!! If you are looking for a non-stop constantly-falling-out-of-your-seat film, then Sex Drive is perfect for you. It is an instant teen comedy classic, in my books. James Mardsen and Seth Green steals the show but up and coming actors: Josh Zuckerman and Clark Duke did extremely well for themselves and prove themselves to be the next big thing in the future. It is just about as funny than Superbad and American Pie 1,2,3 and the plot of the movie was just so simple and well-made. Hopefully, Sex Drive will be a teen classic in the next few years because <more>
it's extremely funny, raunchy & has a little bit of it's sweet side, too. Sex Drive is awesome and super hilarious!!!
I mostly thought that all of the great comedies were done for the year after the summer ended. This summer 2008 was truly a great time for comedy with movies such as Step Brothers, Tropic Thunder, Pineapple Express, etc. My thoughts were changed though when I saw this movie. This was arguably in the same category as those movies. It is easily one of the funniest movies of 2008. It really reminds you of road movies in the late decade such as Road Trip, Euro Trip, etc. and delivers the normal Superbad kind of content. Josh Zuckerman did a really great job in his first starring role that I have <more>
seen him in. Seth Green is in this as well and he nearly delivers a ton of laughs in this movie. This is worth it for those who like the usual teen sex kind of comedy.9/10
I went to this movie knowing it was either going to be crap or funny, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was extremely funny. I laughed through the whole thing, and was never bored. My favourite character was definitely Lance. He is going to be a great comedic actor and I can't wait to see his next movie. He was extremely funny and captivating. I liked all the characters and found this movie highly entertaining. It was a bit like road trip, but with a few more edgier jokes. I think this was way funnier than Superbad, who's humour I found a bit over the top and a bit uncomfortable and <more>
is a guys movie. For us girls it was not very funny.Overall 9/10. Good work!!
Lude, crude and very, very funny (by michael-turner13)
When I went to see Sex Drive I was half expecting most of the film to be a continuous romp. Boy was I surprised.It is packed with jokes from start to finish that should appeal to a large number of people.The level of the acting is one thing I will compliment. The actors seem to be enjoying themselves I wonder why? Ho Hum .At some points I did feel that things where a little stupid such as a couple of the sex scenes.Sex Drive is a hilarious movie that can be throughly enjoyed by nearly anyone.
I Am Still Laughing (by claudio_carvalho)
In the suburb of Chicago, the eighteen year-old Ian Josh Zuckerman is a naive and virgin teenager that is mocked by his homophobic brother Rex James Marsden and his schoolmates; his best friends are Felicia Amanda Crew and the wolf Lance Clark Duke . When Ian meets a girl called Tasty Katrina Bowden in Internet, he writes many lies about himself; when she invites him to drive to Knoxville, Tennessee, to have sex with her, Ian steals Rex's GTO Judge 1969 and travels with Lance and Felicia. When they have trouble on the road with the car, the Amish Ezekiel Seth Green offers to <more>
help them in his community. Lance meets the Amish Mary Alice Greczyn and they fall in love for each other. During their travel, Ian and Felicia discover that their feelings are more than friendship and that Tasty is not who she told she is.I am still laughing with "Sex Drive" since this movie is one of the funniest comedies that I have recently seen. There are many gross jokes, beautiful tits and girls and enjoyable characters. The cynical Seth Green is simply hilarious in the role of a sympathetic Amish. The scene when Ian is on the stage watching the dancers backstage while a pregnant girl is telling her sad story is so funny that I needed to stop the movie just to laugh. The last scene with Amanda Crew in the end of the credits is also very funny, and I believe many people probably lost this joke. If you are intellectual, or if you do not like this type of movie, please do not spend your time to write bad reviews in IMDb. I can not understand how a viewer can be surprised with the content of a comedy that begins the way "Sex Drive" does. Amanda Crew, Katrina Bowden, Alice Greczyn and all the female cast are incredibly gorgeous. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Sex Drive"
Will leave you open-mouth at some many parts, so funny (by sad-eyed-angel)
An eighteen-year-old is taunted mercilessly by his older brother, loses girls to is younger one, and talks to a pretty girl on the internet. He tells her he has a 1969 GTO his brother's and she says if he drives to see her in Knoxville, she'll make it worth his while. The plot sounds normal for a raunchy teen comedy, but it's pulled off hysterically. It probably couldn't have without the perfect cast.The main character, Ian, is played perfectly to the part of the lovable virgin everyone will be rooting for. Clark Duke is perfect as the suave ladies man in a dork's body <more>
and Amanda Crew is perfect for the best-friend-who-wants-more. But the best performances are by Seth Green and James Marsden Seth Green, playing a sarcastic Amish man, will make you laugh every single time he says "I'm just f*cking with you." He plays it so well, you'll want to become Amish. And then there's James Marsden. You've probably seen him play a superhero, a lovable dance show host, an innocently narcissistic prince, and a cynic we all grew to love. Ever seen him play a cocksure older brother with a maniacal laugh? This shows a whole different side to him; the crude, crass, cussing, cocksure homophobic side. His love for his car, his love for torturing his brother, his laugh steals every scene he's in. This is a great movie for a laugh, or to see Seth Green with a beard glued to his face, or to see James Marsden with bleached hair.
