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.

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?

Top Critic

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

Above all, Marsden and Green are a genuine delight.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

The comedy is uniformly crude and lewd, some of it works and some of it's lame.

Top Critic

There should be some kind of law that if you're going to make an incredibly derivative, violent and vulgar teen comedy then it must also be funny.

He's leaving virgin territory. Very good comedy! It's not exactly stunningly original, but it's still a hilarious film. The three leads do a pretty good job, Lance being a particularly funny character. Marsden and Green steal the show in all the scenes they're in, and all of the characters in the film are interesting, even if most of them are stock characters. The script is also well-connected, with most of the characters being connected to the larger plot, and combines wit, ribaldry, and straight adult humor well. Every gag sequence gets big laughs, and the comedy never slows down or dies out. The internet cut-aways are especially hilarious supplements. Although it lacks star leads and filmmakers and will probably drop under the radar, I definitely recommend Sex Drive to anyone looking for a big laughs. Ian is a high school senior in suburban Chicago, plagued by being a virgin. Online he's inflated his resume, met Ms. Tasty, and agreed to drive to Knoxville where she promises sex. He steals his homophobic, macho brother's GTO, and, with his two best friends, Lance and Felicia, heads south. Every young woman who meets Lance, including Felicia, is attracted to him, as he practices his aptly learned "Pick-Up Artist" skills. Ian, on the other hand, is a decent guy who wouldn't mind if his friendship with Felicia became a romance. By the time they get to Knoxville, they have encountered a jealous boyfriend, a menacing hitchhiker, jail birds, carjackers, an Amish community, and Ian's better judgment.

i hate how all the critics were licking this movie balls because it was like "the new improved sex comedy". ok look at the cover man. its a guy in a donut suit with a gun. i swear ive never seen that before, but does that mean its hilarious?? AND THE MOVIES CALLED SEX DRIVE PEOPLE!!! how sophistocated can it be?? Funniest scene? James Marsden destroying a garage door with his fist and head. I think smart people will realize this movie, in fact, does suck when they see a drunk amish girl run out of a barn screaming "Rum springer" and then falling (not drunk falling, just plunging downward into the ground) into cow shit, or shit from whatever animal amish people own. But im even smarter than most smart people so i knew it was gonna suck when i heard it was called "Sex Drive".
