Imagine Superbad (minus the profanity and humor) mixed with My Bodyguard (minus the smarts) and you'll get Drillbit Taylor, a watered down, brainless high school movie about freaks and geeks.

Homeless slacker with a plan
Convinces kids that he's the man
To save them from their high school woes
Heigh ho, heigh ho, and off he goes

A drifter, con man and a thief
He's fishing for a maple leaf
But soon succumbs to greater greed
Instead of only chicken feed

He takes the boys under his wing
And soon he gets into the swing
And though his pupils try their best
The bully's clearly not impressed

Predictable and full of holes
Like many Owen Wilson roles
Take this Drillbit off your list
A bogeyed hole that's better missed

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. You get what you pay for
2. To avoid overpayment, wait for this one on cable

Format: DVD
The concept behind this movie is rather cool: 3 Geeks in high school that are constantly tormented by 2 bullies enlist the help of Drillbit Taylor (played by Owen Wilson), a homeless ex-army officer and full-time beach bum.

While the concept should make for an entertaining film, the execution is ho-hum. Packed with stereotypes, cliches, bad acting and overall idiotic situations, Drillbit Taylor should be avoided, regardless of your age group.

Drillbit Taylor April 4 2008
By Michael Zuffa - Published on Amazon.com
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.

entertaining Aug. 20 2009
By M - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Cute movie- Owen Wilson at his best Dec 26 2013

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.

Protect me from bad movies Drillbit!! May 6 2008
By M. B Cole - Published on Amazon.com
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. He might be louder sometimes than others, but his delivery is the same. I'm not saying he's a terrible actor, I'm just saying his funny side is always the same (which can be bad or good depending on the viewer). Secondly, some of the story was just way too out there. For instance, we have a homeless guy, who puts on a suit, and then somehow tricks a school into letting him be a teacher. Classroom AND Gym teacher. All because he's holding a coffee mug...*being rolling eyes...now*. I honestly and truly didn't find myself laughing at this except for one scene and that was when Wade and Ryan decided to learn to take a punch. They just start hitting each other as hard as they can in all types of body parts and hearing each of them scream after each hit had me laughing pretty hard. Wade has the pre-maturist man scream ever. The half scream, half cry was so funny. But other than that, there wasn't a lot going for it. Parts of the story were so hard to believe like the teacher part mentioned above and then there was a part with ALL the parents confronting the principal and the bully, yet the parents all thought the bully was a good kid and that their own children were just over reacting. Yeah right. I think my Mom woulda slapped the crap out of anyone if they had messed with me like that kid was messing with them.

Being rated PG-13 I think helps a lot since since I think the movie would work well for kids still in middle school. Maybe they would find more humor and story in it than I did.
