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.

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.

Neither film wins a prize for visual style. Each deserves one for clever gags and zanily zig-zagging dialogue.

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?

In its best moments, [suggests] a live-action rendering of the Jerry Scott/Jim Borgman comic Zits.

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.

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

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.
October 17, 2008
A film destined for an undistinguished second life as a pay-cable plugger for decades to come, Sex Drive benefits from the low standards of the teen sex-comedy genre.
October 17, 2008
Sex Drive may slather on the gross-out humor, but underneath it has a heart.
October 17, 2008
While it elicits a few laughs, Sex Drive has little to ignite either the comic road-trip genre or the teen-sex romp.
October 17, 2008
The title Sex Drive is a pun about a road trip in search of nooky, but it's also an apt image of what it's like to be a teen guy. You're the car. The stick shift is driving you.
October 17, 2008
Just slightly funnier than you'd expect, this dashed-off teen comedy cribs from a thousand other movies, without coming up with anything original of its own.
October 17, 2008
Formulaic doesn't necessarily mean lifeless, and Sean Anders, who directs (and co-wrote the script), hits a number of bits just right.
