Drillbit Taylor Extended Survival Edition DVD Review

Seat42f Says: There’s too much of a been there done that feel to Drillbit Taylor to push the grade above a C. Owen Wilson has played this character plenty of times in the past and the few jokes that are laugh worthy are few and far between. Even with Judd Apatow producing and Seth Rogen penning the script Drillbit Taylor can’t find its own voice to stand above the other summer teenage coming of age movies.

Synopsis: Ryan (Troy Gentile), Wade (Nate Hartley) and Emmit (David Dorfman) attend their first day at high school and they’re pumped…until they meet up with Filkins (Alex Frost), a school bully who comes off like a little Hannibal Lecter. Before they become completely engulfed in Filkins’ reign of terror, they seek out some protection by placing an ad in Soldier of Fortune magazine. Their best response – and the cheapest – comes from Drillbit Taylor (Owen Wilson), a down-on-his luck soldier of fortune who lives a homeless – he likes to say “home-free” – existence on the beach. He enrolls them in some physical and mental training.
