Sex Drive

sex_drive_movie_poster2Sex Drive is what happens when you cross American Pie with Road Trip and The Sure Thing, which, as anyone with a childish sense of humour knows, is no bad thing.

 

Ian (Josh Zuckerman) is eager to lose his virginity and drives across America with his two best friends Lance (Clark Duke channelling Jack Black via Rainn Wilson) and Felicia (the delightful Amanda Crew) in the hope of popping his cherry with a girl he met online.

 

OK, so it’s nothing new (most of the main characters seem to have crept in from other similar films) but there are plenty of belly laughs in the first half after which the plot kicks in a bit too heavy, and heads towards a slightly too complicated finale. Still, it’s a perfectly enjoyable teen comedy thanks mainly to star turns from James Marsden as Ian’s homophobic older brother and Seth Green is great as a sarcastic Amish mechanic.

 

Rating: 3/5
