The Virginity Hit (2010)

1 Star (out of 4)

YouTube Boobs

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay produced this junky-looking movie made by and for the YouTube generation. Shot entirely on small cameras and phones, it may work for older teens that have never seen any other movies, ever, but as a member of the well-worn teen sex comedy genre, the movie has nothing new to add; just about everything in it has already been done. It's less than unfunny; it's dull.

Upon reaching high school, four friends, Matt, Zack, Jacob and Justin, agree to smoke pot from a special bong each time one of them loses his virginity. After a year, the first three have made it, and only Matt remains. Matt and his girlfriend Nicole have been dating for two years and waiting for the right time, which will be on the night of their second anniversary. Unfortunately, Matt learns that Nicole may have had sex at a frat party and "cheated" on him. This leads him and his friends on quest for another girl, ranging from a 25 year-old who requires him to buy an expensive suit, to Matt's favorite porn star, Sunny Leone. Can Matt finally lose his virginity, or is love more important?

The characters come across as vaguely spoiled and somewhat annoying, and the hero, Matt, is more pathetic than he is a comical sad sack. For some reason, the movie throws in subplots about his mother dying of cancer and his father battling drug addiction, which make him even less funny. Some of the main female characters have spunk, but for the most part the movie's attitude toward women is somewhat disrespectful, and much of the humor is simply cruel. Perhaps if it had been a 90-second YouTube video, it might be more worth the time (and money).
