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.System Requirements:Running Time: 101 minutesFormat: BLU-RAY DISC Genre: COMEDY/SCREWBALL COMEDY Rating: PG-13 UPC: 097361383248 Manufacturer No: 138324

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

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.

HASH(0xa6ce5954) out of 5 stars 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.

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.

HASH(0xa78dc594) out of 5 stars Drillbit Taylor Movie Review March 27 2008
By thejoelmeister - Published on Amazon.com
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. But most unique is the idea that the majority of the humor does not rely on crudeness, but the friendlier grounds of physical comedy (undergoing torment by bullies) and unexpectedly nonsensical dialogue (the love chatter between Drillbit and Lisa).

Again this comedy falls into the same storyline quicksand that plagues most recent comedies, which is allowing the conflict to become too serious. No one doubts the fact that the plot is absolutely ridiculous and that most of the concepts are exaggerated to the point of absurdity, but within this fantasy world of nerds and bullies, some things we hope to remain realistic. Things like vengeance against the bullies, getting the girls, and staying out of serious harm's way. These concepts are approached with little justice to realism, and so results in a conclusion that can only be as unlikely as the samurai-sword-wielding antagonist. That's not to say that any of it was intended to be faithful to the stereotypical perception of high school life, but most of it appears that way from the get-go.

"As long as you have a coffee cup in your hand, nobody says nothing," explains Drillbit, on his ease at infiltrating the school as a substitute teacher. And so as long as the humor remains appealingly gut-busting, no one questions the reasoning behind much of the juvenile antics. Where Superbad focused on nonstop sexual and gross-out humor, Drillbit stays refreshingly clean with its parody of the cool kids and the un-cool kids frequenting a typical high school. And (comedic) revenge against persecution is one of the most universally inviting themes to watch.

HASH(0xa78e3dc8) 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.

HASH(0xa6b0c204) out of 5 stars Not the best Owen Wilson movie - but still enjoyable Sept. 20 2008

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.
