Borderline unpleasant and frustrating to watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

If Superbad were remade as a gimmicky Nickelodeon movie, it would probably look something like Drillbit Taylor.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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

The two leads here are not nearly as desperate for Drillbit to come through as the script is, but it never happens.

Wilson is a very capable comic actor, but he's given very few notes to play here. The character he's playing is subject to the whims of the writers, and there's just nothing he can do with the material.

Drillbit Taylor makes last summer's very funny Superbad look even better in retrospect.

More fights than laughs in Owen Wilson comedy.

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

Watching kids being forced to pee on each other isn't actually funny. Neither is watching those same kids get chased down by a pair of thugs in a sports car.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 20, 2008
A flimsy, unconvincing teen comedy from Apatow and company.
March 21, 2008
A comedy that's surprisingly low on genuine laughs ... a trite, tamed and toned-down version of Apatow's high school formula with little of the pop or pizzazz of his other recent movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 24, 2008
The constant fighting and punching gets nastier and less funny, the film drags on for far too long, and the ending is uninspired and predictable.
March 21, 2008
An uneven, stolidly traditional comedy.

Is the golden age of Judd Apatow already waning?

March 21, 2008
It very quickly loses whatever steam it had, to the point that the last half hour feels unbearably drawn out.

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.
June 18, 2008
What worked for me were the three kids, but every time Wilson shows up the movie comes to a complete halt.

March 21, 2008
Bereft of jokes while overloaded with keenly observed individual moments, Drillbit Taylor can best be described as an almost success. This also means it's a figurative failure.

Even the breezy, laid-back charms of Owen Wilson couldn't have saved Drillbit Taylor from being the middling effort that it is.
