"Drillbit Taylor" is one of those old school comedies from/for my generation (by the way kids I am talking about the 80's) that you always remember with found memories where a simple but effective story is delivered with no pretentiousness or forcing of sentiment but instead it is given to you with care and attention with the aim of making you smile, entertaining you and to get you cheering-on the loveable loser hero as he comes through in the end.

It is by no means original however that is part of it's charm, it does not ask to much of you except that you enjoy your time, which I did thoroughly and I would go so far as to say it is one of the best performances by Owen Wilson to date. I always found Wilson very hit or miss always throwing himself at roles and hoping something will stick.

"Drillbit Taylor" is, in all the right ways, "Superbad" for the young teens of the 80's. It's funny, it's likeable, it made me smile, it made me laugh and it knows exactly what it is and who it is aimed at. Most defiantly recommended.

Okay comedy. Wilson seems to play variations on the same characters.

A lot of heart with some funny lead kids. The bully really pissed me off (in a good way) by the end.

Top class. Owen Wilson is a good egg but the guy from Pineapple Express AND tropic thunder was different class. He was funny and majestic, get this guy a tennis racket? No get him a baseball bat because he's a home run.

Nerds hire a bodyguard in this one joke comedy.

I laughed out loud once. I smiled a few times. Other than that, I was generally creeped out by the movie and its awkward violent tone. It really didn't work. Far, far, far, far away from the hilarity of Superbad. And somebody shoot that third little high schooler who tagged along IN THE FACE. I fucking hate him.

It has its handful of absurd laughs, but ultimately is a more annoying that funny Owen Wilson work.

Poor excuse for a movie. Nothing worse than 3 high school nerds that want to be hard men. The story doesn't make any sense, there was stupid lines that and scenes that made me cringe throughout the movie.

I'd rather have a drill bit to the forehead than watch one more minute of the crap.

Fun little mindless comedy. Nothing great but enjoyable enough to warrant a recommendation.
Grade B-

Quirky, funny and enjoyable. It may be generic, but Wilson gives it a certain comedic value, and it has a certain charm that not many teen-flick/bully-stories can deliver nowadays.

"Guardaespaldas Escolar". Una película a base de una traba de clichés escolares sin sentido no se puede considerar una comedia relevante.

Somewhat well-acted, but familiarly scripted. The charm from the maincast does all in its power to make it funny though.

I have always liked Drillbit Taylor. It was a fun movie for me to watch as a kid and I still enjoy it today. Its a very simple, average plot for a teen movie. Owen Wilson fits well with teens and they do bring some laughs and silly gags that are like able at times but at others just bleh. The movie isnt a classic but suitable to be amusing enough.

Fun(ny) and rebellious high school comedy!

I stumbled upon this film and watched because of Wilson's presence. It's got some laughs and aims to be something worth watching, but fails to do so. You could find much worse however. (57%)
