The Virginity Hit plays like it's real when it's really 100% a work of fiction. It's supposed to play like a home movie made by teenagers trying to get their best friend to have sex for the first time. The film was one of the very underrated comedies of 2010 while the trailer was released very mainstream. I saw the trailer on Youtube and was rather curious how the film would turn out. I never saw it in my local theaters listing.
It wasn't until I went on Facebook, and saw a friend of mine went to a Midnight showing downtown to go see it and after a quick Google search I was able to find out it was released very limited. The film is better than a movie like Grown Ups, but it still uses the tiresome, drab virgin formula. I don't know what it is, but for some reason, comedies that come out now are all about someone trying to lose his virginity.
Even though most things now aren't the freshest meat on the market, they do have some fun moments in them. The Virginity Hit is about teenagers Matt, Zack, Jacob, and Justin. All the friends take a hit off a bong when they lose their virginity, and Matt is the only one of the four that hasn't had sex yet. Zack, Jacob, and Justin go through the trouble to film Matt's adventure with trying to get lucky with his girlfriend Nicole.
The jokes are hit or miss, very few scenes are memorable, but The Virginity Hit is a good sport and does squeeze in some laughs here and there. Matt Bennett (Matt) is part of Nickelodeon's ho-hum series Victorious, and he's the one character in the film I really found myself liking from beginning to end.
The Virginity Hit doesn't score big, but it has about the same level of humor as The Other Guys which was also produced by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell. While neither McKay or Ferrell appear in the film, good or bad, the movie has a bit of the Old School movie feeling, but it still doesn't match the humor in that film. But it's still a nice late night comedy that isn't extremely awful.
I'll put it this way, I wish it would've had a wider release.
Starring: Matt Bennett, Zack Pearlman, Jacob Davich, and Justin Kline. Directed by: Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland.
