Sure in essence it's formula and pretty much just a romantic comedy, but [the film] is a sex fueled hilarious teen comedy/road flick...

It has its rewards, most notably a likable trio of teen characters - and a couple of wild-card sidekicks - who are given room to carve out personalities of their own.

Likeable enough, and even amusing for stretches, but ultimately too generic for a recommendation. [Blu-ray]

Okay, it doesn't have an original bone in its body, but forgetting the awful title, Sex Drive has its share of snappy lines and decent gags. It's also got Seth Green and James Marsden on cracking form, which should never be underestimated.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/6
January 9, 2009
Although the Hughes tone in the first half slowly gives way to more predictable frattish comedy, alongside Superbad Sex Drive is one of the funniest American high school comedies in ages.

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's a keenly enjoyable celebration of teenage insecurity and - for hairy-handed teenage hordes - offers the first chance to see Amish breasts since Harrison Ford clocked Kelly McGillis in in Witness.

Think of it as American Pie for a post-Apatow world: crude, yes, but with its heart exactly where it should be.

Too many of the gags aren't funny, the tone is depressingly sexist, and the characters won't make sense - even to teenagers.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
David Edwards
Daily Mirror (UK)
January 9, 2009
It's as crude, tasteless and offensive as all the above suggests, although it comes with a smattering of medium-sized laughs, making it a trip just about worth taking if you're a hormone-pumped adolescent.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

If you have an insatiable urge to laugh this weekend - this is your cure.

Neither film wins a prize for visual style. Each deserves one for clever gags and zanily zig-zagging dialogue.
Derek Malcolm
London Evening Standard
January 9, 2009
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.
| Original Score: 3/5

Likeable, frequently hilarious teen comedy that's like an updated version of The Sure Thing, crossed with Road Trip and American Pie.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Suffice to say that any movie that can pack in an orgy (or the idea of one) in puritan Amish country has some merit.

A hilarious movie with a particularly stupid romantic subplot attached.

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?

Sex Drive starts off well, but quickly deteriorates into a compilation of rehashed jokes that go for the lowest common denominator every time.
