DVD: Sex Drive (15)
Friday 01 May 2009
The editors of Sex Drive could have trimmed two hours off this smorgasbord of puerility and still have been left with an overweight teen flick.
Like a super-bad Superbad, the panoply of phallus, doughnut-costume and anal-sex jokes recommend the film only to the kind of teenage halfwits whose misadventures it attempts to depict. Cartoon violence and an obsession with bodily fluids dominate a classically dull coming-of-age road trip, on which the three peppy young protagonists engage in the most tedious love triangle in the history of romantic geometry. Chuckling at the less well-off rednecks they meet along the way, the film's stand-out moment is a cameo from Austin Powers star Seth Green as a sarcastic Amish car mechanic, from which you may infer something of the quality of the writing.
