Synopsis

Storyline:
Homeless veteran Bob ‘Drillbit’ Taylor manages to enjoy life anyhow and even saves some cash for his dream, an ‘all-paid’ move to Alaska, even if that may take many years. His dream comes within reach when clever nerd Wade, has fat friend Ryan ‘T-dog’ and cocky shrimp Jim, all new to high-school, are bullied so badly by emancipated Filkins and his buddies that they advertise for a bodyguard. Only Drillbit seems affordable and not crazy, so he’s hired and drains their pocket-money and home content. He’s clueless how to protect them but gives them (bogus) self-defense classes.

User Reviews: Drillbit Taylor is the latest Apatow/Frat Pack movie. It isn’t great and it isn’t awful. Rogen’s screenplay disappointed me, he did such a good job on Superbad. This movie will be compared to Superbad and rightfully so. It basically serves as a prelude to Superbad. Owen Wilson does his usual. Wilson’s charm and improv skills keep this movie afloat. I think that if this movie was rated R it would have fared better with reviews and box office performance. Overall though its a must see for Frat Pack fans and Wilson fans. I also wish Owen well in his upcoming projects and i hope he is well on the road to recovery.

6/10
