Paul's Review of Sex Drive
I pretty much thought I was being invited to watch a porno movie when I heard the name of this movie. I had forgotten I saw a preview of it in theaters. I pretty much saw this on a whim and had no expectations of what it was going to be, so I am pretty sure my review will be a fair one.
I'm not a big fan of raunchy humor...I don't like it when movies do too many gross out gags, especially since I usually go out to eat with friends before I go to a movie. Thankfully this movie didn't do too much of that, although there were times I had to close my eyes and try not to hear the discriptive dialogue.
Now, onto what I think about the actual movie: it is good. It is more than some brainless sex romp movie where character "A" finds himself in situation "B" which leads him to locale "C". There is actually character chemistry in here and the characters are pretty well developed. The show stealer is the male best friend who plays chauvenistic jerk and woos the ladies at every turn. He has all the best moments in the movie, but the male lead and the love interest have their great moments as well. Seth Green makes an awesome appearance as the wise-cracking, back-talking Amish car mechanic who is somehow well versed in his practice. IN fact, I wish there were more scenes with him. Also, the main character's brother is pretty much a hilarious representation of big brothers everywhere and may cause feelings of nostalgia (or even trauma for those who had one-too-many wedgies in their youth).
The ending has its good amount of twists and plot turns and even I was wondering throughout the movie how it would all pan out. The movie does a good job of being unpredictable at times, but this isn't something we haven't seen before. It's a great movie, but it by no means will be a living legend. Instead, it will be a movie that will be remembered fondly and occasionally quoted between good friends whenever they need a good laugh.
