Storyline

Ian is a high school senior in suburban Chicago, plagued by being a virgin. Online he's inflated his resume, met Ms. Tasty, and agreed to drive to Knoxville where she promises sex. He steals his homophobic, macho brother's GTO, and, with his two best friends, Lance and Felicia, heads south. Every young woman who meets Lance, including Felicia, is attracted to him, as he practices his aptly learned "Pick-Up Artist" skills. Ian, on the other hand, is a decent guy who wouldn't mind if his friendship with Felicia became a romance. By the time they get to Knoxville, they have encountered a jealous boyfriend, a menacing hitchhiker, jail birds, carjackers, an Amish community, and Ian's better judgment.

Goofs

In the scene when the trio is at Brandy's home and Rick is coming for Brandy, he's stopped by Felicia just in front of the bedroom door. Then when Ian moves Felicia away from the door he takes a picture with him and it falls to the ground. But later, when Lance is stuck to the front door with a part of the bed and Rick is trying to grab his face, you can clearly see that the picture is up on the wall again without anyone touching it.

Worth watching!
7 February 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The name "Sex Drive" may awake false expectations for some viewers prior to watching. The movies goes beyond the typical "american-pie-like-comedy-style" and shows a sensitive development of relationships which were not expected at the beginning. These developments are combined with several road-trip experiences and different (of course, also sexual) experiences during the trip. But the film contains more than that, it has a nice plot, a stringent story and very talented young actors. It is definitely not just a teenage-flick, it is much more.

Because despite some laughs, funny moments ( "amish") and unexpected action - we experience beautiful acting of Amanda Crew who didn't appear to me that intense in other movies before (like Final Destination for example). She does not only look beautiful but acts in a very authentic way, it seems to me like she enjoyed the set, the whole idea of the movie, and the acting in it especially (though the film had its rather crude moments at the beginning and in the step-mother appearances).

I admit that this was one of the best teenage-road-movies I've seen in the last decade. Not only because it shows the lifestyle everybody would have loved to live in its teenage years, it also features both laughs and unexpected developments in the end, thoughts about the meaning of love and how important it is to trust feelings.

A closer look at the character of Ian would have been great because during the whole movie he seemed a bit inapproachable, and we don't get an impression about his development of feelings towards Felicia, only the other way round.

Summary: Funny movie with a very nice development in the end, and a fascinating and breath-taking Amanda Crew - worth watching!
