Borderline unpleasant and frustrating to watch.

Drillbit Taylor, which is directed by Steven Brill (Without a Paddle), is the kind of movie you enjoy against your better judgement.

Unexpectedly funny is the best way to sum up Drillbit Taylor.

The characters are so uneven it feels like two different movies awkwardly fused together.

Most of it is the same high school comedy we've been watching since John Hugh's heyday 20 years ago. Everyone is either popular and cruel (because in teenager-land one de facto means the other) or awkward and thus fair game for the popular kids.

All too kiddie for Apatow's older fan base and a bit too rough and violent to be an all-ages, family-friendly film.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 9, 2008
The action sags in the middle, but director Steven Brill gets mileage out of some funny cameos and good one-liners.

...aggressively bland...

Has enough heart and insight into the complexities of being a teenager today that you can overlook some of its other shortcomings - primarily in the tired act of the titular character.
July 16, 2008
A distaff version of Weird Science with a similar metaphysical disregard for logic

Wilson proves again that he's a quick-witted comedic treasure—he's the sort of actor who gets hired to make mediocre movies almost good by his sheer force of comic will. [Blu-Ray]

...silly, sentimental, sometimes cruel, often clumsy, mostly unfunny, and frustratingly inane.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

What worked for me were the three kids, but every time Wilson shows up the movie comes to a complete halt.

Leaves its stain less on [Luke] Wilson than on the fellows who are trying to harness his smirk and his persona without the delicate touch that [Wes] Anderson and Wilson made look easy.

You can pretty much tell which parts were written by Seth Rogen. That was probably why 50% of the movie was actually funny.

Earns plenty of laughs without sinking to gross-out levels.

Maybe it's because I had low expectations going in, but whatever the case may be I was unable to wipe the smile off my face throughout most of the film.

He (Wilson) has played every variation of the stoned surfer guy imaginable and here the act begins to wear thin
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Wilson is perfectly cast as a beach bum who passes as a bodyguard for teens
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

The kids are generally good, and Frost makes a really convincing psycho, but the energy level is generally dragged down by Wilson, who gives a depressive edge to his zillionth version of this character.
