Drillbit Taylor

Strange

Drillbit Taylor is as strange as its name. Owen Wilson plays a hired body guard for three central-casting dorky high school freshmen, who are harassed by two central-casting bullies. The strangeness does not come from the formulaic comedy that makes fun of both high-school types, which you can find from Ferris Bueller through Juno and Charlie Bartlett, and before and after those well-known films. It comes rather from the blend of Fight Club and slacker parody, not an easy dramatic alliance.
