Sex Drive

Critics Consensus

Sex Drive has some hilarious moments and is well made for a raunchy teen film, but will appeal to few beyond that demographic.

  • Little has changed since the heyday of John Hughes: nerdy hero on a mission to get laid, red sports car, bespectacled BFF- check, check, check.

  • It's crushingly generic stuff - a combination of gross-out gags and clammy sentiment - but Seth Green's cameo as a sardonic Amish car mechanic has its moments.

  • Duke has good scenes as Lance, but this is a rental, rather than a go-see.

  • It is played with gusto and each of the characters avoids stereotype. It is also genuinely funny at least half of the time. The other half is a bit prurient in a style with which we are all too familiar now.

  • Why in the world is this essentially sweet tale of two super shy teenagers who fall in love dressed up in utterly profane fancy dress?

  • Some jokes work, some don't and, frankly, I can't remember either, but it leaves a sweet aftertaste. Slight, but sweet.

    Funny in parts but most of it feels like another straight to dvd American Pie movie, But if you're into them sort of films then go for it.

    Although the sexual references are arguably not subtle enough, the outrageous, gross-out gags and the three likeable leads make Sex Drive an underrated yet perfect enjoyable ride through teenage hormones.

    Very cliche, and extremely typical in terms of a teen comedy. It's likable enough to get by, but most of it is awkwardly written and doesn't fit with the story. Clark Duke and James Marsden are the only stand out performances, and everyone else is boring, and unconvincing. There's nothing new, but there are fun moments.

    James Mardsen is fantastic. The rest of the film, not so much.
