Good films always raise compelling questions, whether the format is fiction or documentary fact.

As somebody who had not heard any of this before, it became a curious phenomenon to sit and watch a film and slowly have the realities begin to click into place.

Sex Drive (2008): Dir: Sean Anders / Cast: Josh Zuckerman, Amanda Crew, Clark Duke, James Marsden, Katrina Bowden: Raunchy teen comedy about our inner urgings and a long drive Josh Zuckerman embarks upon with his friends, played by Amanda Crew and Clark Duke so that he can lose his virginity to a woman he met via Internet. Great setup establishes his home life and work where he plays mascot for a donut shop. Directed by Sean Anders with great location appeal. Zuckerman holds strong going from insecure to discovering hard facts about his intended dream date. Crew and Duke are well rounded as his accompanying friends. Zuckerman secretly likes Crew but claims to be visiting his sick grandmother when she joins the odyssey. The whole idea of him losing his virginity to her in the conclusion marks a negative message since many unplanned pregnancies occur from just such moments. Duke gets caught up in an Amish community where things aren't as traditional as first thought. James Marsden steals scenes as his overbearing homophobic brother. Katrina Bowden is the beautiful Internet lure that strings Zuckerman along with false hope. A case could be made regarding Internet relationships and the risks involved but that is hardly the ambition of this sex farce. It is at home in its vulgar teen spirit that may drive home to its target viewers. Score: 7 / 10

Our Film Fridays group veered away from the classics for "Sex Drive" and, while not overly enthused with the result, were somewhat pleased to find some humour therein.The story revolves around young Ian (Josh Zuckerman) who gets embroiled with an internet hottie named Ms. Tasty in order to lose his virginity. Follow a bunch of sight-gags revolving around penises, breasts, flatulence, the Ahmish and James Marsden's over the top homophobic big brother to Ian.Ian, his pal Lance and Ian's beloved Felicia hitch Rex's (James Marsden) GTO to head to Knoxville. Along the way they encounter the movie's sole saving grace in Seth Green, who gets some genuine chuckles as the sarcasm-addicted Ahmish car repairman who saves the day for the group. The movie is quite uneven, however, going from a buddy movie to exploring teen longing to unnecessary gross out humour, leaving its message (Tell your crush that you love them and go from there) behind in some forced scenes. Hard to give this movie more than an average rating as the messages of friendship and longing have been explored much better in other movies. The cast isn't exactly crowd-friendly either. Zuckerman does fine as the overwhelmed teen but Clark Duke as Lance is as unlikeable as you can get in a precocious teen. Amanda Crew (along with most women in the movie) is a decoration, adding to the misogynistic overlay of the film.See only if in the same age group or if nothing else is on.

Ian (Josh Zuckerman) is a suffering virgin high school senior in Chicago. His brother Rex (James Marsden) is always picking on him. His best friends are best-girl Felicia (Amanda Crew) and smart-mouthed Lance (Clark Duke). When his online girl Ms_Tasty offers to go all the way, he steals Rex's 69 GTO to go on a cross country trip to Knoxville with Felicia and Lance.The three leads have great chemistry and are charming together. Josh is wonderfully dorky. Amanda is super sweet. Clark is brilliantly talky. The sex talk is especially raunchy. James Marsden is trying a little too hard. Most of the humor works. It's a raunchy teen sex comedy road trip that is better than most.

MIGHT CONTAIN MINOR SPOILERS All in all, this film has got to be one of the poorest, most disgusting, and derivative movies I've seen in a long time. My roommate was a fan of it and so I tagged along in watching it. It felt like a teenage version of Knocked Up, except less intelligent and way more graphic. Then again I was watching the unrated cut. It's very objectifying of females, but that's to be expected in a dude comedy. The main character, Ian, is delightfully dorky and out of touch with how to be cool. James Marsden (an unrecognizable James Marsden) is actually excellent as homophobic Rex, I'm not used to seeing him play non-straightlaced roles, which he is so good at (The Notebook, Straw Dogs). Wendy Crew from The Haunting In Connecticut gives a sweet and unassuming performance as Felicia, who tags along the Ms. Tastay road trip. But the excessive nudity (including a horrible scene involving a public ejaculation at a trauma conference) and disturbingly raunchy sex humor kills the movie's potential. The performances could be funny if the material was subtler, and had more depth. There are mere moments of potentially good filmmaking here, but they are squashed by - as Sean Anders or whoever said in the commentary - "more tits!" 4/10, a real failure but so bad it's kind of good.
