Review Speaking in semi-awe of two snorting, greasy teenage vulgarians, Lance (Clark Duke) diagnoses their problem thusly: "They don't know how to close." His appreciation comes from their relentless, unfazed ability to open--they will speak to, and hit on, any girl they come into contact with...I feel similarly about Sex Drive. It has a certain comic dexterity, a willingness to set up sight gags, cutaways, and funny lines, many of the latter coming from Duke as an unlikely nerd-lothario encouraging his virginal buddy Ian (Josh Zuckerman) to get laid by any means necessary. But while the movie produces a fair amount of chuckles, it also cobbles together a whole lot of scenes with no discernible endgame apart from a gross-out punch line. The movie's first half-hour, in particular, spends an unseemly amount of time ripping off American Pie--parents walking in on that, characters slipping and falling on this--with a devotion that would seem more at home in an 11th grade screenwriting class...From this point, the American Pie resemblances must make room for an episodic, cartoony sketchiness owing a debt to Road Trip, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, and Superbad, prudently covering almost the entire spectrum of modern sex comedies and avoiding out-and-out 1980s-style exploitation...It flaunts its alt-comedy cameos from the likes of Brian Posehn and David Koechner, yet also gives us an appearance from Fall Out Boy and, by sad necessity, characters who seem to like Fall Out Boy for no real reason. Sex Drive is a road trip with too many stops for fast food.

Review "Sex Drive" is an exercise in versatile vulgarity. The actors seem to be performing a public reading of the film's mastery of the subject. Not only are all the usual human reproductive and excretory functions evoked, but new and I think probably impossible ones are included. This movie doesn't contain "offensive language." The offensive language contains the movie...Was I offended? I'm way over that. I was startled. The MPAA ratings board must have been scribbling furiously in the dark to come up with "Rated R for strong crude and sexual content, nudity, language, some drug and alcohol use, all involving teens." What did the filmmakers forget? Violence. Nothing much blows up real good, and there is a lack of vivisection and disembowelment...The plot involves Ian (Josh Zuckerman), who is that tragic creature, an 18-year-old male virgin, deeply fascinated by an online girlfriend who calls herself Ms. Tasty (Katrina Bowden). This suggests several topics: (1) Since when is an 18-year-old's virginal status automatically assumed to be tragic? Never mind. Forget about it. I was going to dig up some statistics proving that many 18-year-olds are virgins, but when I Googled the topic, the top hits involved 18-year-olds complaining about it. (2) Most of the people you meet in chat rooms are much older than they claim, of a different gender, a cop or your so-called buddy who is goofing on you, haha. (3) Every female named Ms. Tasty is either a hooker, or take your choice from (2)..."Sex Drive" has some laughs, to be sure, even a few big ones, but it is so raunchy and driven by its formula that you want to cringe. Let's see. What else? Oh, I just noticed the pun in the title, haha.

Quotes
Cammila Albertson, TV Guide All that matters is if it's funny -- and it is.
Harry Knowles, Ain't It Cool News This isn't an imitator, it is, in fact, the real deal. A hilarious, original sex comedy that you really must seek out.
James Berardinelli's ReelViews John Hughes would be pleased - and so also might Judd Apatow.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly Seth Green is uproarious as an Amish farmer who speaks in sentences so passive-aggressive, they're like tiny slaps.
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer ...displays the same Apatow-ian obsessions, and raunch, as "Pineapple Express," "Superbad," and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin."
