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, 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. (Paramount Pictures) Expand

  1. Even if this movie doesn't quite hit the highs of its predecessor, it's nice to know that there are still filmmakers ready to respect the eternal struggles of freaks and geeks.
  2. This latest whiffle ball from Team Apatow is a mildly amusing comedy.
  3. 50
    The "Apatow formula" is pretty simple: raunchy comedy, likeable characters, and a dash of sweetness (but nothing too sweet). Drillbit Taylor fulfills the third characteristic but falls short in the other two.
  4. 50
    The film emits a subtle yet distinct John Hughes vibe.
  5. 50
    Wilson's funny. Mann's funny. But paired together here, nothing works.
  6. So ploddingly directed (by Steven Brill) and lazily written that it adds up to little more than a diffuse collection of second-hand gags and jokes, few of them funny.
  7. 20
    There was a movie called “My Bodyguard” about the new kid in high school who hires the sullen loner to protect him from a bully. That was good. Drillbit Taylor is shit but, hey, I’m in Judd Apatow’s Hollywood.

    this movie was one that is easy to forget but it had parts that made me laugh out loud and get stared down by people next to me. Over all this movie was one that is easy to forget but it had parts that made me laugh out loud and get stared down by people next to me. Over all I've seen owen wilson in better movies but this is a new favorite. However I don't see how it got away with PG13. It had a lot of cursing and sexual content in it. I would recommend this movie to people ages 15 and over. Expand

    Funny flick! Owen Wilson was dope in it. If he did a drama i don't think I could take him seriously.

    If you're like me, diluted Apatow is still better than no Apatow at all.

    Average Movie...Feels like more of the same but not nearly as satisfying as some of his other films.

    Drillbit Taylor is a predictable but still mildly funny movie. During the first ten minutes of the film I predicted exactly what would happen Drillbit Taylor is a predictable but still mildly funny movie. During the first ten minutes of the film I predicted exactly what would happen during the film: kids hire bodyguard, bodyguard protects kids(sort of), kids figure out bodyguard is a fraud, everyone is happy and makes up, the end. Owen Wilson was not very funny. The best part of the movie was the three hilarious kids. Overall, I felt like I Expand

    Stupid movie. I can't believe I wasted my time watching this. Not worthy of being mass produced for the public.
