Editorial Reviews

Ryan (Troy Gentile), Wade (Nate Hartley) and Emmit (David Dorfman) attend their first day at high school and they're pumped... until they meet up with Filkins (Alex Frost), a school bully who comes off like a little Hannibal Lecter. Before they become completely engulfed in Filkins' reign of terror, they seek out some protection by placing an ad in Soldier of Fortune magazine. Their best response - and the cheapest - comes from Drillbit Taylor (Owen Wilson), a down-on-his luck soldier of fortune who lives a homeless - he likes to say 'home-free' - existence on the beach. He enrolls them in some physical and mental training.

This movie didn't earn 5 stars, but it's not such a bad movie. There's lots of funny parts, such as the bodyguard recruiting sequence (I laughed at the Tiger) as well as the scene where the bully is sitting there in front of everyone and still acts all sweet and charming and makes everyone go 'aww'. He bears a strong resemblance to young Hannibal Lecter and doubtless the similarities in physical appearance was intentional.

Seeing Josh (Drake and Josh) as the bully's friend/partner was a surprise and a nice treat. Josh certainly has changed from the plump, dorkishly cute kid he used to be on Nickelodeon, and he played a good role as the other bully. Owen Wilson was amusing in his role as bum and then substitute teacher, and Lisa Lampanelli's cameo was hilarious, especially when she scolded her son for calling Owen a bum when before she had been making dirty jokes to said bum. All in all, a decent movie, 3.75/5 stars.

This was a cute movie- some inapropriate material for younger kids. I love Owen Wilson - he is very funny and this movie is no exception.

Drillbit Taylor makes quite an accomplishment in that it is a PG-13-rated film that has the feel of last year's R-rated Superbad. Most of the vulgarity that made Apatow's previous venture inappropriately hilarious has absconded to unknown horizons, and Drillbit is left with utilizing more crafty means at achieving laughs. Not necessarily more intelligent, but certainly less crude, the similarly hilarious lead characters all find their perfect places in this consistently amusing comedy.

Three kids experience bullying at school by antagonizer Filkins, an emancipated student who revels in terrorizing smaller kids. On their first day at high school, Wade (Nate Hartley as the Harry-Potter-like scrawny kid), Ryan (Troy Gentile as the overweight kid with the never-ending ranting) and Emmit (David Dorfman as the kid-who-gets-shoved-in-a-locker) can't seem to evade constant humiliation at the hands of nemesis Filkins. Only able to take so much, the three decide to hire a bodyguard to defend them. In a riotous job-interview montage, the trio chooses Drillbit Taylor (Owen Wilson), an ex-black-ops and improvised weapons expert, who teaches them to stick up for themselves. During the process, Drillbit gets sidetracked with aggressive teacher Lisa (Leslie Mann) and the truth that he is nothing more than a homeless bum who yearns for the good life in Canada.

Drillbit Taylor, like Superbad, derives much of its humorous moments by forcing many continual little laughs. Quick jokes follow rapid slapstick to allow the audience to pick and choose what tickles their funny-bones. When some gags don't work, instant new ribs replace them so that no one can sit still for long.

Wade (Hartley), Ryan (Gentile), and Emmitt (Dorfman) are three nerdy kids in need of protection. School bully Filkins (Frost) has decided to make their lives a living hell. After about a week of dealing with this, they decide to hire a bodyguard. Constrained by money, they opt for Drillbit Taylor (Wilson), an ex-military man who is currently homeless and trying to make enough money to get to Canada. Drillbit is less than impressive though, and has to come up with a plan quickly if he wants to help the kids and himself as well.

"Drillbit Taylor" fits the mold of the Judd Apatow-produced films, albeit in PG-13 form. Think of it as Judd Apatow-light, and that is fine because he knows what makes good movies. Sweetness, likeable characters, and raunchy comedy make up the mix, and for "Drillbit Taylor", the raunchiness is toned back to give it a PG-13 rating. Wilson is very good as Drillbit, a con-man of sorts that really isn't that good at things. "Drillbit Taylor" is an amusing addition to the Apatow family of films.

My family enjoyed watching this movie, although it did seem quite outrageous in terms of what the bullies were getting away with - which was frustrating! But, the kids loved it.

I was really looking forward to this movie as I'm usually a fan of Owen Wilson, but I have to say this one was a bit dull. If I had to guess, I'd say the potential humor was toned back to get a PG-13 rating.

On the plus side there are some funny parts such as the body guard interviews, the training sequences, and Owen Wilson as a gym teacher. There was a lot of room to expand these parts and make the movie funnier.

On the negative I think the whole robbery aspect detracted from the film. It didn't add much to your opinion of Owen's character, and the scenes with the other homeless guys were rather pointless.

All in all I think there are much better Owen Wilson movies (Wedding Crashers, anything with Ben Stiller) and better high school movies, this one didn't stand out.
