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.

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining August 20, 2009
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Drillbit Taylor April 4, 2008
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute movie- Owen Wilson at his best December 26, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Drillbit Taylor = *2* stars!!! September 16, 2014
Format:DVD
What a horrible movie this was. Trust me, its soooo bad but had a few redeeming laughs. The whole film is based
on three kids who keep being bullied. And all the school teachers just shut their windows because they don't want to
see what happens to the three kids. This is just a ridiculous movie, *nobody* even the principal is afraid of these two
guys. Is this realistic??? The Answer is *no* So the three kids get Owen Wilson (who's just a bum living off the streets
and begging money illegally by standing on the street and asking people in their cars for a handout. So the
three kids hire this bum to take care of the two bullies.... and the movie just goes downhill from there....
Avoid this movie, there is a reason why this movie got bad reviews nothing makes any sense in this movie, the jokes
are disgustingly bad and its a movie that's been done over and over and over again! Nothing new here!
p.s. Did I mention that the bullies should have been thrown in jail as some of the that they did to the kids was criminal.

2.0 out of 5 stars Protect me from bad movies Drillbit!! May 6, 2008
Format:DVD
Wade and Ryan are just two kids getting ready to go their first day of High School. Their about to go through 4 of the best years of their life. Well, at least until day 1 starts. That's when Wade and Ryan see another freshman getting stuffed into a locker by 2 high school bullies. Wade, to Ryan's displeasure, decides to step in and stop what is going on. And so begins their days of being brutally picked on. It doesn't help that Wade is as skinny as a toothpick, Ryan is short and fat, and Emmit, the kid they `rescued', is about 4 feet tall and befriends them like a parasite even though Ryan doesn't want to be friends with him. Thanks to Wade, the three of them are constantly picked on and bullied around by the 2 high school bullies and there is nothing they can do about it. They even go to the principal to complain, but the principal doesn't believe it or doesn't care (couldn't figure it out) cause the bully is such a nice and polite kid in front of parents. So they take matters in to their own hands and hire a bodyguard to protect them. And in walks Owen Wilson as Drillbit Taylor. Drillbit is a homeless ex Army Ranger. He decides to work for the kids, but really he's just going to rob them blind. He just wants to leave and go to Canada, but needs to `earn' the money for the plane ticket.

The story is pretty 1-2-3 with some comedy thrown in. If I say this is a `typical' Hollywood movie, then I'm pretty sure you can guess how the rest of the story is going to go, and trust me when I say it does.

Now I'm sure you are saying, "Yeah, but at least it's funny. It's got Owen Wilson". Well first off, if you've seen an Owen Wilson comedy movie, then you've really seen them all. He barely changes. His comedy is the same all the time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Entertaining Enough To Make You Yawn April 22, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First off I bought this Blu-ray for like a buck, so how could I go wrong. Even with shipping it was like $4. In the end, however, I still felt slightly ripped off. Not sure what Owen Wilson was thinking after making such great movies as The Royal Tannenbaums and The Life Aquatic, hell even Wedding Crashers, but perhaps he didn't even read the script before signing on. Here you have a group of misfit kids starting high school. You have the shy skinny geek and the fat outlandish geek and they wind up teaming up with the spastic incoherent geek and there off. Day one and they make the acquaintance of the school bully and his toady (Josh from Drake & Josh no less)and the beatings, pantsings, and arbitrary humiliations begin. Tired of the same thing every day, our three geeky heroes decide to hire a bodyguard. Enter Drillbit Taylor (Wilson) a homeless layabout who needs to earn some cash to make his way to Canada where he believes the good life is. The geek squad hires Drillbit thinking that he is some ex-paramilitary killing machine and all their problems with the bully will be over. No. Drillbit is just a jerk and he's totally afraid of violence. He's there for the money. You can see where this is going, right?

Seriously, the premise here has been used so many times that even to mock it would be a waste of time. The kids are charming and funny and pathetic and that makes you remember how you were when high school was the scariest place on earth. But the bully is over 18 and emancipated and some of the things he does to the three are so outrageous as to require jail time. So in the end, the movie just comes off as irritating. Wilson looks bored here, as if he can't even believe he's a part of this train wreck. Perhaps he was drunk when he signed the contract?
