If you think that a film about three young boys named Ryan (played by Troy Gentile), Wade (played by Nate Hartley) and Emmit (played by David Dorfman) who hire a basically homeless man named Drillbit Taylor (played by Owen Wilson) to be their bodyguard as they are facing some troubles from other kids as they start highschool sounds interesting then you have to get out more often. Seriously though, this is a premise that we have seen hundreds of times through the years and really does not warrant to be done again. If I see one more kid stuffed into a locker so help me God!
I guess Seth Rogan (co-writer) and Judd Apatow's (executive producer) luck had to run out eventually and it comes to a crashing halt with this lame duck of a film. Unlike the writing in their previous films it is unfunny and at times downright insulting. Most of the attempts at humour in the film fall flat. And the issue of bullying at school has become a serious one lately so I think we should just drop the so-called humourous side of it. The film starts off bearable and then quickly slides downhill. It even tries to save itself by instilling some heart and lessons into the film, but I don't think many will be fooled by the weak attempts.
Maybe kids will enjoy the film – the easier to please ones anyway.
