If you're looking for an intelligent, well thought-out and realistic comedy, this is not the movie for you. Virgin Territory will never win awards, it will not be studied in film classes and most definitely will never be among the top movies ever made.
However, if you're looking for a movie with juvenile humour, ridiculous sex references and just an overall silly movie, you're in the right place. That being said, this movie is hilarious. With a rather famous main cast including Hayden Christensen, Mischa Barton, Tim Roth and Mathew Rhys, somehow, even Mischa Barton's acting doesn't stink as much as normal. But, hands down the best performances go to Tim Roth and Craig Parkinson. Tim Roth as Gerbino di la Ratta, the villain and Craig Parkinson as Tindaro, the artist/priest and narrator. How either of them kept a straight face with their lines is beyond me.
I can't say for certain, but there's no way this movie was made to be taken seriously. For crying out loud, they all have British accents when the movie is set in Florence, Italy during the Dark Ages. It follows the antics of six teenagers who flee Florence to escape the plague. What follows them is one Russian count, an evil villain out to steal a bride and a priest. Along the way they encounter a variety of obstacles and people, and somehow at least four sex scenes get thrown in before they reach their final destination.
It's an over-the-top teenage sex movie that is an excuse to have boob shots, with a lot of purposely eye-rolling puns and ridiculous situations. It's not remotely realistic, and definitely isn't meant to be. But it's not as excessively crude as the American Pie: The Naked Mile, and such but more akin to American Pie I. But with better music.
None of the above is necessarily bad; I found this movie to be a refreshing medium between overly sexed movies that try too hard such as the Scary Movie series, new American Pie movies and similar and the annoyingly stupid and obnoxious movies like as Knocked Up and 30 Year Old Virgin. Especially with lines like, "Tindaro: (narrating about Gerbinos sex-life) There isn't much going on under his pants. Funny, I've heard that he's the biggest dick in town..." how can you not laugh?
