2.0 out of 5 stars My Superbad Bodyguard June 27 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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

2.0 out of 5 stars Pile of rubbish Oct. 4 2008
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Entertaining Enough To Make You Yawn April 22 2013
By Mr. Sinister - Published on Amazon.com
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? Or owed someone a huge favor? Who knows. In the end, if you find yourself watching Drillbit Taylor, hopefully you only NetFlixed it. Look on in horror and smile maybe once, then flush it from your mind with anything else.

2.0 out of 5 stars pale, though occasionally amusing, imitation of "Superbad" July 11 2009
By Roland E. Zwick - Published on Amazon.com

"Drillbit Taylor" is little more than a watered-down version of "Superbad" - not really a surprise since one of its writers, Seth Rogan, also had a hand in crafting that earlier, much more sophisticated work. Yet, ironically, Rogan may actually have become a victim of his own success, for, since its release in 2007, "Superbad" has become the gold standard against which all subsequent revenge-of-the-nerds comic fantasies must now be measured - and "Drillbit Taylor" falls far short of the mark.

Nate Hartley, Troy Gentile and David Dorfman play a trio of 9th graders so terminally nerdy that they make the geeks in "Superbad" look like letter-wearing party animals in comparison. After suffering endless humiliations at the hands of the school's uber bully (Alex Frost) and his simpleton sidekick (Josh Peck), the boys decide it's time to hire a professional bodyguard to teach the jerks a lesson. They alight on one Drillbit Taylor (Owen Wilson), a homeless ne'er-do-well who signs on for the assignment for a nominal fee - or so the boys think.

Far more dunderheaded than it is satirical, "Drillbit Taylor" boasts a few good laughs that don't quite compensate for the movie's predictable storyline or its frequent lapses into "feel-good" sentimentality. However, the performers are generally likable, and at least the hordes of extras milling around in the background look like they might actually BE high school students for a change - not the collection of superannuated adolescents that generally populate modern teen flicks. It's a minor triumph to be sure, but a triumph nonetheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring Comedy with Very Few Laughs March 26 2013
By Dan Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Drillbit Taylor is a forgettable, unengaging, and rather bland comedy. I typically enjoy Wilson's work but this just couldn't hold my attention. The story is average and the characters are uninteresting. There are a few funny one-liners, and some funny cameos, but they are few and far between. The rest of the film is predictable, formulaic, and not at all clever.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Bully Was 18 The Whole Time! Sept. 6 2010
By Flap Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Taken on its own, Drillbit Taylor is a film that's too grounded in reality to be that funny. Considering the pedigree involved in writing the project, add the phrase "Exceedingly disappointing" to it also. You see, John Hughes came up with the story, and Seth Rogan co-wrote the screenplay. No, this isn't an Ethan Cohen vs. Etan Cohen situation here, these are the John Hughes & Seth Rogan that you know and love. So how did this film go so wrong?

First off, the story. The plot revolves around three bullied kids hiring a bodyguard to protect them, except the bodyguard is actually a homeless person, and doesn't really have any credentials to be bodyguarding. Sound familiar? It should. The plot derives cliches from every bully plot or sub-plot in movie history, every character pretending who they're not, then being found out plot or sub-plot you've ever seen, and a myriad of other random high school cliches. And since the script was co-written by Seth Rogan, who also did Superbad, you can derive a dozen similarities to that movie as well. In fact, in that respect, Drillbit Taylor seems like the prequel to Superbad. There's the tall, geeky kid that has trouble with the ladies. There's his smart-mouthed friend, who also happens to be chubby. And they even have their third member, who isn't really a core member, but can be helpful/crazy when you need him to be. But Michael Cera, Jonah Hill & Christopher Mintz-Plasse these kids aren't. They're bad actors, and they sell little if anything about their characters. The adults are good actors, but with the exception of Owen Wilson and maybe Danny McBride, everybody is reduced to little more than cartoon characters. In one scene, the bully charms all the parents and the school principal with a stupid joke and a smile, and everybody acts like he was Jesus Christ. Granted, this fits into the cliche in these films that adults are stupid and you must take it upon yourself to stand up for yourself, but that's Home Alone logic. And at least in that film, the adults weren't total buffoons.

But that being said, the highlight of the film, and the only real reason you should think about watching this film is Owen Wilson. Wilson brings a certain charm to the character and makes the most out of a poorly-written character that's story-arch is a little bit non-existent. Wilson's character starts off as a greedy jerk, then turns into a nice guy, with the implication of one scene being the only explained reason. Then there's the fact that Drillbit can't really fight, then turns into a kicking bad-ass in the one ending scene that makes of the film's DVD cover.

Which brings me to this: The film isn't that funny. There's some gags that work, and the charms of a few of the actors make jokes more funny than they really are, but there simply isn't much here to laugh at. This is mainly due to the fact that there's little place for true humor in the story. Why? Because the bully is an unrelenting and dangerous psychopath that threatens people and commits bodily harm to them with a freakin' samurai sword. Thus, the confrontational scenes are utterly brutal to watch. It's like watching a mouse crawling into a lion's cage. You admire its perseverance, but you known that the Lion has the ability and the desire to shred such a cute thing. It's not funny, it's just uncomfortable and scary. The story tries to add humor around these situations, but every one of them falls flat. Especially the ones that involve topics such as balls. Oh, and if you've ever had past experience, or have been traumatized by a bully, you'll be traumatized by watching this film. I felt traumatized and I haven't even been in that situation.

Overall, if you're a HUGE Owen Wilson fan, then check out this movie, and you'll find something you like. Otherwise, skip it like it's a fat girl at the prom dance. There's not much to like, there's not much to think about, there's not that much to laugh at, and in the end, you just feel bad.
