Movie Info

"The Virginity Hit" is down and dirty filmmaking at its finest in just about every way one can imagine. It's four guys, one camera, and their hilarious experience chronicling the exhilarating and terrifying rite of passage: losing your virginity. As these guys help their buddy get laid, they'll have to survive friends with benefits, internet hookups, even porn stars during an adventure that proves why you will always remember your first.

None of this is the least bit funny. Or in any way entertaining. It's just another teenage-clown-in-a-dunk-tank flick. Everyone fire away.

Unfortunately, the things that can be funny and even liberating in a movie like American Pie end up looking coarse and slightly depressing in the scripted pseudoreality of The Virginity Hit.

Crass and obnoxious, "The Virginity Hit" is an atrocious and unfunny comedy.

"The Virginity Hit" is a completely unfunny, mind-numbingly dull experience that focuses on one uninteresting thing and one only: the attempt by some friends to get another friend to lose his virginity.

The tricky chemistry of a likable, funny ensemble cast is the biggest thing The Virginity Hit has going for it.

A few moments of inspired comedic genius spread throughout a sophomoric, disturbingly irresponsible little comedy.

This, my friends, is soft-core porn at its rancid worst. Shame on you, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay for producing this swill that features some of the most unlikeable characters ever put to film.

It's poorly acted, clumsy, lazy, and as emotionally stunted as any sex comedy ever made, which is quite the accomplishment for a genre that defines itself by dick jokes and bodily humor.

Sort of a Porky's for the age of YouTube, The Virginity Hit isn't nearly as raunchy as it pretends to be, and not nearly funny enough as it needs to be.

Audience Reviews for The Virginity Hit

Here's a very interesting take on the teen sex comedy. Shot and told as if this were a documentary it chronicles a group of friends who try to help their friend Matt lose his virginity. Along they way they encounter frat parties, tranny blow up dolls, porn stars, and becoming youtube sensations. The performances are all decent and feel genuine. But that probably stems from them all being unknowns. Pretty uneven, and long gaps between funny scenes hold this back from being a very funny movie. Instead, it's a few very funny parts, scattered throughout 90 minutes. Kind of a less funny version of "American Pie" and "Superbad". Good for one watch if you want a laugh, just don't expect to laugh as much as you would like.

Zack: Have you ever lost your virginities? Wanna meet my friend?

The main problem with 'The Virginity Hit' is that we don't care, like, or want to see the protagonists. Founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, this film is about a group of friends, all who smoke out of a bong when losing there virginity. When there is only one left, the group attempts to get their buddy laid, and the story begins. 'The Virginity Hit' is vulgar, not in a good way, as most comedies are able to do nowadays (The Hangover, The 40 Year Old Virgin), but this film doesn't produce laughs except for a few brief moments, but those were chuckles. Not once did I find myself laughing out loud, however many sex jokes were made, I was bored, and irritated. Now I ask myself, why in the world would two of the funniest men in hollywood, who created one of the most successful comedy website, chose to sponsor and release this? I'll tell you one thing, I would rather be hit then sit through 'The Virginity Hit'.

Cast: Matt Bennett, Zack Pearlman, Jacob Davich, Justin Kline, Krysta Rodriguez, Nicole Weaver, Harry Zittel, Savannah Welch, Seth Barrish, Tina Parker

Director: Huck Botko, Andrew Gurland

Summary: The quest -- losing one's virginity -- is an ancient one, but the tools used to document it are distinctly modern in this documentary about a young man's endeavors to "close the deal," as his buddies (and documentarians) so charmingly put it. When Matt's untimely breakup with a girlfriend throws a monkey wrench into his plans, his friends urge him to continue the mission anyway -- with them along to film the adventures.

My Thoughts: "Matt and Zach's relationship reminded me of Jonah Hill and Michael Cera's, in the film 'Superbad'. The film had the feel of the movie's 'Superbad' and 'American Pie'. There are quite a few funny moments, and some pretty down right embarrassing one's for poor Matt. Worth taking a look at if you liked 'Superbad' and the 'American Pie', flicks."

The tagline of this film is, "Are you in, or are you out?" and I can honestly say that I am definitely in! The Virginity Hit is not in any way original, but the comedy lurking throughout in this hilarious mockumentary about a guy losing his virginity for the first time is brilliant. It does feel a bit quirky at moments and the characters are definitely weak, but they do know how to bring the comedy to the table. I found myself laughing at every situation that the film brought. I never thought I would say that I like a film about friends filming their friend having sex, but in this case, I will make an exception. I cannot call this a great comedy, but for what it is I had a great time viewing it. This definitely get's a recommendation. Great job Will Ferrel!
