Drillbit Taylor (2008)

A Superbad rip-off.  I’m not sure if it’s fair to say rip-off when it’s made by the same people.  Actually, given that, maybe it’s even worse than an “honest” rip-off.  The three kids are the same fucking characters as in Superbad.  The fat kid with curly hair and a big mouth, the not fat kid who is more softly spoken, the dorky little guy with a weird voice.  What the fuck?  SRSLY.

Anyway, it has its moments.  I liked all of the movie & pop culture references.  (Too bad not many people in the theatre seemed to get half of them.  Or if they did get them, didn’t enjoy them.)  And the Fight Club scene was sweet.  (Seriously, in the back?  In the forehead?  Knee to the quad? One in the nuts?  Youch.)

If your plans suddenly change (expected/unexpected zombie outbreak, you understand), and you find yourself at a bit of a loose end after dinner (lovely Korean) with a mate, you can definitely do worse – it’s pretty funny, pretty easy going.  But weaker than the original.

No alcohol in the squad car.

Verdict: why not?
