Trailer Watch: Sex Drive

Director and co-writer Sean Anders’s Sex Drive (based, apparently, on Andy Behrens’ All the Way) might be one of those infantile teen sex comedies where all the decent laughs are in the trailer, but I’ll be damned if I wasn’t giggling my ass off. The premise off a sex-starved teen (Josh Zuckerman) from Chicago who steals his brother’s muscle car to go meet his internet girlfriend from Tennessee is less interesting to me than the MPAA’s description of it as having “strong, crude and sexual content, nudity, language, some drug and alcohol use — all involving teens.” (Yep, it’s rated R.)

The presence of James Marsden as the douchebag older brother is pretty reassuring, to me; after stealing scene after scene in both Enchanted and 27 Dresses, Marsden has been busy enough that a movie like this should be beneath him — unless the script were good. But we’ll see. Come on, Summit! Bring on the red band trailer!

Seth Green and Katrina Bowden round out the cast. Sex Drive will rev up the multiplex on October 10.

    Amusing, and definitely worth a rental if nothing else that’s good is coming out.
